Inaugural Edition Red Blend

I am very proud to introduce the Inaugural Edition of our Dedication Series of wines. Never wanting to stand still, I am offering up a new series of blended wines outside of the box (but still inside the bottle). Each wine will be unique in its blend and unique into whom it is dedicated. For our first of the series I have made a blend of two varieties less often blended in Europe but a blend rapidly becoming a Washington State Classic: Cabernet Sauvignon and Syrah.

French for "of thirty years"

The floral aromatic qualities, combined with its inky hue and powerful structure, makes this limited production Petit Verdot-based Bordeaux-style blend truly special. Multi-layered with aromas of pie cherries, black raspberries, musk and cedar. Originally released to celebrate Brian's 30th year as a Washington winemaker it is now in it's 9th release. This wine captures Brian's spirit of winemaking:  Make a difference, do it better, do it well.

Passion for the

Art of Blending

Passion for the Art of Blending

Open any bottle of Brian Carter Cellars wine and you’ll discover both an inspiration and a story. Our handcrafted wines reflect classic elegance and the centuries-old tradition found in true European-style blends. Balanced and well-rounded, each wine speaks anew to the art of blending and showcases Brian’s personal passion for making exemplary European-style blends from Washington State’s unique terroir. 

Pioneering. Innovative. Legendary.

“I came into the field of wine, not because my parents were wine drinkers, but because I was given a microscope when I was 12 years old. I heard about these things called yeast, and I wanted to see what they looked like under a microscope. I was told if you want to look at yeast you have to start a fermentation. So I picked some blackberries, fermented the wine, took a sample, and brought out my microscope — and there they were — the little yeast. I’ve been having those yeast work for me ever since.” - Brian Carter
