95-97 points Jeb Dunnuck: "Rocking levels of cassis, blueberries, leafy herbs, graphite, and violets emerge from the 2019 Cabernet Sauvignon Curiositas, a rich, full-bodied barrel sample with ripe, building tannins, terrific balance, and a great finish. This is classic, impeccably made Red Mountain Cabernet Sauvignon that will drink well with just a few years of bottle age but keep for two decades."
This Walla Walla producer has taken a huge couple step forwards: they hired the rockstar wife-husband duo of Carrie and Todd Alexander, the same team responsible for the incredible wines coming from Force Majeure. Todd is a Cabernet whisperer, having cut his teeth at Napa's Bryant Family and now applying his mastery to Washington Cabernet. What's so impressive about his wines–especially his Cabs–is the refinement. It's easy to get big Washington fruit but taming it, making it into a velvety masterpiece, that's where Todd thrives. The 2018 Curiositas is a step up from the fabulous 2017, in my esteem. It's outrageously attractive. -Marcus
