Dark, bright red. Blueberry, cassis and spices on the nose, complicated by mocha and menthol. Silky, fresh and harmonious, with a cool medicinal cast to the dark fruit and spice flavors. This suave, medium-bodied merlot finishes with smooth, nicely buffered tannins and notes of black cherry and spices. A step up from the 2009 in balance and freshness.

About This Producer


Since 1998 Carter Cellars has been producing small, intimate vintages with outstanding fruit from Napa's finest vineyard sources. Mark Carter's dream of creating a world class wine label without a brick and mortar winery lead him to a partnership with Nils Venge and no small amount of critical praise. Carter Cellars produces several Cabernets and Merlots, all from fruit grown in low-yield vineyards in Napa and showcasing Beckstoffer fruit from the famous original To-Kalon Vineyard. In 2006 they founded Envy Winery to produce estate-grown wines for the first time.
