This Walla Walla producer is EPIC. With 5-STAR duo Carrie and Todd Alexander at the helm (they also make the amazing Force Majeure wines). Todd made the wines at Bryant Family in Napa, and brought his comprehensive knowledge to Washington to produce world-class Cabernet here. He makes it seem easy, making first-rate, big and bold, yet elegantly, refined wines with silky-grained tannins. He is a real gem! A true artist of Bachus. I am glad I came across this winery while visiting Washington State last year.

96 Points Jeb Dunnuck: Coming from Red Mountain and 83% Cabernet Sauvignon and 17% Cabernet Franc brought up in 80% new French oak, the 2020 Cabernet Sauvignon Curiositas offers more red and black fruits to go with classic Red Mountain minerality, notes of graphite and tobacco, full-bodied richness, and building, firm, yet ripe tannins. It's going to need 3-5 years of bottle age, but it’s a classic expression of this terroir.
96 Points IWR: “A blend of mostly 83% Cabernet Sauvignon with an additional 17% Cabernet Franc added, the 2020 Red Mountain Curiositas is fermented in a combination of concrete and stainless steel and aged in 75% new French oak. Dark fruit and black currant driven on the nose, it’s a classic Red Mountain Cabernet that gifts that classic minerality and dried mountain sagebrush note you find in these lovely wines. It’s still a baby and will show much better in 2024 and then enjoy for the next 15-20 years.”
Winemaker Notes: This is our flagship Cabernet Sauvignon from a selection of vineyards in the Red Mountain AVA. It provides a nice contrast to the Bellamy, which is from Walla Walla Valley in that it is more structured and powerful on the nose and palate.
