94 Points Jeb Dunnuck: "
Checking in as a blend of 88% Cabernet Sauvignon and the balance Petit Verdot, Merlot, and Cabernet Franc, the Domaine Curry 2018 Cabernet Sauvignon sports a dense purple color as well as a beautifully balanced, full-bodied, elegant style that carries classic crème de cassis fruit as well as notes of tobacco leaf, lead pencil shavings, damp earth, chocolate, and spice. I love this beauty’s elegance, and it has building tannins as well as a solid spine of acidity that keeps it fresh and lively. It’s a joy to drink now with a short decant, yet it will have two decades of overall prime drinking."

93 Points Antonio Galloni (Vinous): "The 2018 Cabernet Sauvignon is a powerful, deep wine. Blackberry jam, chocolate, new leather, licorice, spice and menthol saturate the palate. Bold and juicy, with good structure, the 2018 has enough depth to drink well for a number of years. Look past the celebrity factor. The Domaine Curry Cabernet is a serious wine that has the potential to be even better in future vintages with the right decisions. " Only 410 cases produced.

If the name sounds a bit familiar to you, you are in the right ballpark, er, basketball court. Domaine Curry is the handiwork of a pair of Currys, Sydel Curry, 24, is the youngest Curry sibling (and sister of NBA star Steph Curry) and Ayesha is Steph Curry’s wife. The two are the owners of the a new winery, Domaine Curry, that made its debut last year. Needless to say, the debut was star-studded - the correct choice of words.

Both Sydel and Ayesha participated in the final blending of the Cabernet Sauvignon, along with winemaker Kent Jarman. “Kent is just fabulous; he realizes we are both beginners and explains everything to us down to the last part of the process. It is amazing to see the wine develop, both in the cask and in the bottle. It’s almost like magic, it really is.”
