292 Cases Produced
"This wine keeps getting better every time I taste it! It's incredibly smooth and the tannin structure is still powerful, yet refined. This was the first vintage we sourced the Cabernet Sauvignon for Curvature from Stagecoach Vineyard and I completely fell in love with it. The vineyard is just magnificent!" - Cristie Kerr
This Cabernet Sauvignon expresses layers of dark and dense aromas including notes of cassis, blackberry, coffee, and toffee. On the palate, it is incredibly rich, featuring blue-black fruit and sweet, subtle oak flavors. The inherent richness of the wine is balanced by subtle acidity and integrated yet powerful tannins in the finish.

The 2015 vintage was characterized by an ultra-light grape crop and sunny, warm, and dry growing conditions. The wine lots produced from this vintage are phenomenally concentrated, intense, and richly hued, while also possessing balance and richness. Beginning with this vintage, our Cabernet Sauvignon was sourced from Stagecoach vineyards, which spans the Atlas Peak and Pritchard Hill AVAs, while our Merlot hails from the Blue Tooth vineyard in Yountville.
