About The Producer
Domaine Curry Wine is a small-lot Napa Valley winery producing big bold wines by Ayesha Curry and Sydel Curry.
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.”

Winemaker Tasting Notes
You will notice the earthy complexity from aroma to finish, underlined by beautiful, subtle Bordeaux-esque cherry fruit, cassis, bright elements of blueberries and warm, integrated oak nuances.
95+ Points - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
“Composed of 88% Cabernet Sauvignon, 8% Petit Verdot, 2% Merlot and 2% Cabernet Franc, the deep garnet-purple colored 2018 Cabernet Sauvignon needs a little swirling to reveal wonderfully pure blackcurrant cordial, ripe black cherries and mulberries scents with suggestions of incense, lavender, pencil shavings and forest floor. The medium to full-bodied palate possesses bags of elegance and grace, featuring bright, crunchy black berry and earthy flavors with a finely grained texture and oodles of freshness, finishing on a lingering mineral note.” – Robert Parker, November 2020
