Curtis – wine – Brief Article

Philip E. Hiaring

Curtis 1997 Syrah Rose is estatebottled and likely would make the Wall Street Journal wine reviewers change their minds about California rose. But, only 782 cases were produced: rats! It’s in a flint bottle to show off its beautiful colon On the palate, well, heads up, Provence! There’s a new kid in town! Actually, we’ve tasted some really good California roses in recent months, including a Merlot and a Pinot noir. The Curtis version isn’t sweet, just intensely fruity. Try with a salade nicoise, grilled fish or some spicy curry noodles from Hotei Restaurant in San Francisco. Tasted and enjoyed by staff in December: $8 suggested.
