"The 2017 Cabernet Sauvignon Curiositas from this estate comes all from Red Mountain (Quintessence Vineyard) and spent 18 months in 70% new French oak. Up-front crème de cassis, lavender, mountain scrub brush, tobacco, and ample gravelly minerality all define the bouquet, and it's rich, medium to full-bodied, and thrillingly textured on the palate. It's a stunning bottle of wine that has the class to drink nicely today yet will evolve for 20 years or more." (JD)

Winery Notes:
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. 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.
