Carter Cellars and Envy

A Dash of New Blood, Historic Wines and the 100 Point Master

......................................................................................................................................................

"Carter Cellars is a relatively new operation (it began in the late 1990s) run by Mark Carter and Nils Venge. The wines are made at Venge's Saddleback Cellars in Oakville with some assistance from Fred Schrader. They have some interesting vineyard sources, including the Beckstoffer To-Kalon Vineyard in Oakville, the Truchard Vineyard in Carneros, the Revilo Vineyard in St Helena, and the Coliseum Block in Soda Canyon."

"The partnership of Mark Carter and Nils Venge has produced some impressive wines at Envy. Their Bordeaux varietal blend called Bee Bee's tend to be nearly equal parts Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot mixed with small amounts of Cabernet Franc and Petite Sirah."

"The long-time brilliant winemaker Nils Venge, now working with his son Kirk, has fashioned four impressive wines. Few people have as impressive a record of ageworthy, world-class Cabernet Sauvignons as does Nils Venge. I only have to go back to the first California wine I ever gave 100 points to, his 1985 Groth Reserve. (He made it as part of a staggering lineup of wines that he produced from the Villa Mt. Eden vineyard – now Plumpjack.) He has long had a Midas touch with this varietal…" -Robert Parker, the Wine Advocate 12/09.

Mark Carter has assembled an all-star team to help cement Carter Cellars and Envy as some of Napa Valley's premier wineries. With veteran legendary winemaker Nils Venge in one corner and the 100 point Master Fred Schrader in the other, it is no wonder that these wines are making statements and catching a good piece of the spotlight.
