$54.95/bottle or CLICK HERE FOR SPECIAL OFFER!!!
Is what we scored by bringing this Spring Mountain gem to Carpe Vino! That’s right…our newest steed in our venerable wine stable is the 2013 Curvature Cabernet Sauvignon. The Curvature Wines were started as a collaboration of professional golfer Christie Kerr and Pride Mountain Vineyard co-owner Suzanne Pride Bryan. The impetus behind this BEAUTIFUL and ELEGANT wine was for these two professionals to not only produce a sensational cabernet from one of THE prime spots in all of Napa Valley, but also make a wine that would benefit breast cancer research. BUT…this wine is just not to promote philanthropic endeavors. The 2013 Curvature Cabernet Sauvignon is only available in select fine restaurants and establishments in all the US, and has the pedigree to back it up!!! Small production and retailing for $70/bottle at the winery, Carpe Vino secured a sweet deal on a SPECIAL SIX BOTTLE + DISCOUNT (CLICK HERE).

Winery Tasting Notes: “2013 is widely considered to be one of the greatest vintages that California has produced, and our 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon is a bold example of the intensity and concentration that this vintage has to offer. Three years of drought created ideal conditions for wine production, with tiny berries stuffed with flavor and tannins, producing a wine that is nearly black in color and that coats the mouth with its incredible flavor.”
