Tasting Notes
2019’s The Cure G-S-M is a concentrated endeavor with fullbodied 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 pairing well with a wide range of cuisine.
 
Winemaking
Varietals were handpicked in October at the peak of flavor ripeness and phenolic maturity. Grapes were carefully cluster sorted, 100% destemmed and fermented in stainless steel. After a cold maceration, daily punch-downs, pump-overs and pneumotage were conducted.

93 pts, James Suckling | “This is a fresh and polished red with sweet tea, tobacco and red fruit on the nose and palate. It’s medium-bodied with firm, silky tannins and a vivid finish. Nice tension at the end.”
 
92 pts, Owen Bargreen | “Full-bodied with good structure and plenty of smoky and savory tones.”

90-92 pts, Jeb Dunnuck | “The 2019 The Cure checks in as a Southern Rhone-like blend of 45% Syrah, 29% Grenache, and the rest Mourvèdre from a handful of sites in both Paso Robles and Santa Barbara County. Nicely balanced and medium to full-bodied, with ripe tannins and integrated acidity, it has some classic dark, peppery, Syrah-like aromatics and has lots
