This Cabernet showcases a deep and striking magenta hue. It is lifted and brooding with a black-fruited nose revealing hints of cocoa, coffee, and anise. The beautifully expressive palate reveals dark berry fruit, a tight mineral edge and exquisite tension of fruit to alcohol weight. Savory and polished tannins derived from the fruit itself, not the oak. The palate finishes with bright with refreshing acids culminating with a long and gorgeous textural benchmark of Napa Valley Cabernet.
Vineyard Notes: The Atlas fire broke out on 10/8 very near the source of the Curvature Cabernet vineyard. These were actually some of the last grapes we were able to harvest before the fires! It was a warmer vintage with earlier harvest dates, expressive, fruit-forward wines with exuberance, concentration, and intensity.
- Deep magenta in color
- Bouquet of ripe bramble fruits backed by cacao, coffee, and roasted aniseed
- In the mouth, it is super expressive, full of sweet black fruits and spiced cedar woodcut through with fresh acidity. At this wine's core, there's a wonderful tension between brooding fruit concentration, grippy tannins, savory complexities, and a taut mineral edge. All in all, a classic Napa Cab with a gorgeously long finish.
