Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
Possibly the most opulent and structured “Offering” yet, the 2008 is Curt’s closest approximation to the Chateauneauf du Pape cuvees that have been his guiding light. Aromas of smoaked meats, well worn bicycle gears, strawberry jam and spiced chocolate greet a robust palate of sweet cinnamon, brambles, apple butter and bonfire.
