2019 The Cure
“What you seek is seeking you.” — Rumi
For those that have been our members through other releases, you’ll know that this wine had its name well before there was a pandemic to contend with. If there was a definitive cure to anything, we’re sure that wine would be part of the prescription. 2019’s The Cure G-S-M is another concentrated effort with full-bodied richness. It’s fully loaded with earthiness, incense, blue and black fruits, pepper, dried herbs, and floral notes. The Cure’s individuality really shines and it’s our most versatile wine when pairing with cuisine that can range from aged cheese to a leg of lamb.
