Owned by Nicholas Allen, whose great-grandfather, Clarence Dillon, acquired Château Haut-Brion in 1935, this Napa estate turns out Bordeaux-style blends that reflect this family legacy. Producing fewer than 800 cases a year of Cabernet Sauvignon, Proprietary Red, Chardonnay, and Proprietary White, Carte Blanche celebrates its kinship with Haut-Brion. ($125)
