The Curtis family has been growing grapes and making wine, in McLaren Vale since 1973. Mark, Thomas and Jenna Curtis run the business with help from their father, Claudio. They make old fashion, bold McLaren Vale reds. More credit needs to be given to Cabernet from McLaren Vale and this is a great example of what the region can do. Blackberry fruit does all the heavy lifting, with mint and smoky oak playing a supporting roll. Decanting will benefit the drinking experience. 

Here are a couple of reviews for the 2018 release 'Martins Vineyard'  

  • 96pts Sam Kim "Splendidly ripe and gorgeously expressed, the bouquet shows cassis, dark plum, cedary oak, clove and subtle tobacco aromas, leading to an impressively concentrated palate delivering terrific power and persistency. It's wonderfully complemented by refined texture and chalky tannins, finishing superbly long and structured. At its best: now to 2035."
  • 93pts JH (Ned Goodwin MW) "I have a soft spot for cabernet in the Vale, in all its tapenade-basted, minty saline glory. And here it is. In brand new American oak, no less. And yet the maritime climatic scents rise above the oaky clang. Forceful, layered and long, the charry oak largely sublimated by vivid scents of currant, garden herb, sage, nori and bitter chocolate. This is a very good wine. It could be exceptional." PRICE: $70
