THE STORY

Philosopher Thomas Hobbs once stated that “Curiosity is the lust of the mind,” an idea that imagination and divergent thinking are a sought-after experience, something that required inspiration.

Here at The Walls, our inspiration is the goal of making curious wine and that is consistently achieved with each vintage of our Curiositas. “Curiosity is the soul of our wines,” says Mike. “It is what drives our willingness to engage in the depths of the complexity of wine and this wine celebrates that. We could make it easier on ourselves, but we must fulfill our curiosity.”

PRODUCTION NOTES

Fermented in 100% concrete tanks and aged for 18 months in 70% new french oak, Curiositas is an elegant, complex and lush, yet subtle, wine. Its tone of freshness evokes a Margaux-styled fragrant Cabernet Sauvignon. Planted high on Red Mountain these vines get full exposure to all the elements. Curiosity may have killed the cat but that’s why at cat has nine lives, right? If we had nine lives, we’d choose to celebrate each one with this wine.

PRODUCTION NOTES

Fermented in 100% concrete tanks and aged for 18 months in 70% new french oak, curiositas isan elegant, complex and lush, yet subtle, wine. Itstone of freshness evokes a Margaux-styled fra-grant Cabernet Sauvignon. Planted high on Red Mountain these vines get full exposure to all the elements. “It is beautifully situated, with more vines doing less work, and planted with higher density,” says winemaker Ali. “It lends itself to complexity so how could we not take advantage of that?” Curiosity may have killed the cat but that’s why at cat has nine lives, right?
