Brian Carter Cellars is located in Woodinville, Washington. Winemaker Brian Carter brings almost three decades of experience in the Washington wine industry. During this time, Carter has made wine at Paul Thomas Winery (now defunct), Washington Hills, and Apex Cellars. In 1997, Carter began making his own wines. The first was Solesce – a Bordeaux-style blend that is now Brian Carter Cellars’ flagship wine. Carter focuses on producing blended wines, including two Bordeaux-style blends, a Super-Tuscan-style blend, and a Southern Rhone-style blend. However, no blend is ever more interesting and outrageous than the Abracadabra which features an ever-changing mixture of varietals.
As usual, I will be opening the bottle about 7pm Pacific Time and posting my notes along the way every thirty minutes or so. I will also be tweeting @wawinereport and using the hashtag #virtualtasting.
Please join us in trying this wine and posting your notes any time on, before, or after the 21st.
