CURIOSITAS

Cabernet Sauvignon | Red Mountain |
Shaw, Quintessence and Obelisco Vineyards

Powerful and expressive aromatics of blue and black fruit, cassis, sandalwood and incense, dark cherry and hoisin sauce, full bodied and rich, with round, plush tannins and excellent balance with terrific length and purity of fruit. A classic example of Red Mountain terroir.

Kathryn’s notes: This is one dreamy, classy Cabernet. Concentrated structure and a gorgeous spine of rich, deep red fruit position this wine as one of the best from Red Mountain. I think I want a steak!

 

ACCLAIM

19+/20 POINTS, RAND SEALEY
This is an exemplary Red Mountain 100% Cabernet. From the Shaw, Quintessence and Obelisco vineyards, it exhibits a semi opaque ruby color and an intoxicating nose of wild blackberries, black cherries, black plums, black roses, pipe tobacco, cedar, sandalwood, juniper berries, anise, eucalyptus and smoldering incense. The flavors are fleshy and accessible yet authoritative with dark fruits that are intermixed with black licorice, dark cacao, extra dark roast coffee and Red Mountain scorched earth. The concentration continues on the back with macerated berries, roasted walnuts, mocha, kirsch, integrated toasty oak (60% new French) and ground charcoal, all leading seamlessly into a firm yet sweetish fine grained tannin finish.

Heads up! Insiders save between 10% to 25% on each order.
