WSJ: You’re famous for your ability to find, and feature, future superstars. What’s your latest find?
DS: Carte Blanche – it’s made by Luc Morlet (former winemaker of Peter Michael) at a winery owned by Nicolas Allen. It was just released two weeks ago and we have the exclusive retail offering (NB: $75). It’s a very lush, mouthfilling Chardonnay, much in the Peter Michael style.

Meanwhile, back at city life, there was a private tasting and preview of the already well-reviewed four new wines from CARTE BLANCHE at a midtown club. Hosted by his brothers Andrew Allen and Christopher Allen, Nicholas Allen introduced the select crowd, CARTE BLANCHE’s Chardonnay 2008 and Proprietary White 2009 from Sonoma and two wines from Napa: Cabernet Sauvignon 2008 and Proprietary Red from that same year.
The guest list was made up of friends, family and business associates from the worlds of finance, investment, philanthropy and the arts, including Stephen Farrelly, Jake Ward, Will Krusen, and Tripp Ridder, among others.
