2016 Curvature Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon (Elsewhere $70)

SKU #1473176 94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon Curvature is a blend of mainly Cabernet Sauvignon (from Stagecoach vineyard) with a smaller proportion of Merlot (from Blue Tooth vineyard in Yountville) and a splash of Petit Verdot. Deep garnet-purple colored, it simply sings of lilacs, crushed blackberries, mulberries and red and black currants with nuances of tilled soil, pencil shavings and tobacco leaf. Medium-bodied, very fresh and energetic, the palate has incredible tension with layers of red, black and blue fruits and a firm, fine-grained frame, finishing long and perfumed.

K&L Notes

Winemaker's Notes: "90% Cab Sauvignon, 7% Merlot, 3% Petit Verdot. The palate showcases bountiful red Cabernet fruits & dark spices. There is a tightness/tension between acidity and tannins with beautifully integrated fruit weight on the mid-palate. Delightfully juicy ripe Cabernet fruit packed with rich red and black fruit flavors towards the middle. Finishes with a palate elongation that lingers with exuberance and assertion - utterly delicious! Curvature wines are crafted at Pride Mountain Vineyards high above the Napa and Sonoma Valleys in California. Consistently ranked by Robert Parker among the top 100 wineries in the world, Pride brings its deep commitment to quality to the creation and production of Curvature wines."

Now this is a serious bottle of Cabernet. This is not a modern, soft, sweet, fruit bomb. It is powerful, complex and structured with tons of varietal character and intense volcanic rock influenced minerality at the core. The wine really shows its Stagecoach Vineyard origin, a vineyard were many of the vines are planted into almost pure rock. Aromas and flavors of redcurrant, spiced plum, leather, cedar, briary notes and crushed rock. Medium to full bodied with lovely long chain tannins and balanced acidity. This could easily be mistaken for a high-end bottle of left bank Bordeaux, it is a very classically styled expression of Cabernet with awesome stony minerals underpinning the archetypal varietal flavors. I enjoyed mine with a grilled NY strip, herb potatoes, fresh garden peas and whole grain mustard, it was magic!
