The Story

“Philosopher Thomas Hobbs once stated that “Curiosity is the lust of the mind,” an idea that imagination and divergent thinking are a sought-after experience, something that required inspiration.”

“Here at The Walls, our inspiration is the goal of making curious wine and that is consistently achieved with each vintage of our Curiositas. “Curiosity is the soul of our wines,” says Mike. “It is what drives our willingness to engage in the depths of the complexity of wine and this wine celebrates that. We could make it easier on ourselves, but we must fulfill our curiosity.”

“Fermented in 100% concrete tanks and aged for 18 months in 70% new french oak, Curiositas is an elegant, complex and lush, yet subtle, wine. Its tone of freshness evokes a Margaux-styled fragrant Cabernet Sauvignon. Planted high on Red Mountain these vines get full exposure to all the elements. Curiosity may have killed the cat but that’s why at cat has nine lives, right? If we had nine lives, we’d choose to celebrate each one with this wine.”

97 Points Jeb Dunnuck – “The 2017 Cabernet Sauvignon Curiositas from this estate comes all from Red Mountain (Quintessence Vineyard) and spent 18 months in 70% new French oak. Upfront crème de cassis, lavender, mountain scrub brush, tobacco, and ample gravelly minerality all define the bouquet, and it’s rich, medium to full-bodied, and thrillingly textured on the palate. It’s a stunning bottle of wine that has the class to drink nicely today yet will evolve for 20 years or more.”

91 Points Wine Spectator – “Robust yet refined, with concentrated blackberry, smoky anise and spice flavors that build muscle toward medium-grained tannins. Best from 2021 through 2029.”
