Cabernet Sauvignon favors a warm and dry climate to shine. On our Estate, along Foxen Canyon Road, it is
too cool to reliably ripen Cab. We found
the perfect vineyard partner in the Arroyo Perdido Vineyard, in the heart of
the Los Olivos District, planted to gentle slopes. Here the Cab vines are 45+ years old and
deliver impossibly tiny berries and clusters, with an insane amount of color
and extraction. We double hand-sort the fruit into small open top fermenters
where we employ frequent pumpovers to maximize intensity and richness. Our Cabernet is bold and dark, with ripe
fruit-forward qualities and smooth tannins.
It definitely hits all the pleasure centers and is immensely fun to
drink now. This beauty will, however,
hold in the bottle for at least a decade to come, slowly opening up and
improving over the years.

This is E11even Wines:
I am so proud to announce the re-launch of E11even
Wines. This is a very personal project
for me. I feel like these wines have
been works-in-progress for a decade or more, only finally jumping from my
imagination and into the bottle just this year.
These new releases rank amongst the smallest production wines that I
have ever released. They are all Estate
Grown and crafted with the utmost care and precision. They truly represent the best that we can do
here, on the Curtis Estate, in the heart of Los Olivos. No expense was spared in the farming or the
crafting of these stunning wines. They
are rich and decadent, yet remarkably balanced, pure, and varietally correct. They speak softly of their variety and their
origins. They shout, “Drink Me!” These wines exemplify the Natural, Locavore
and Farm-To-Bottle movements. They are
grown in Los Olivos, Hand-Crafted in Los Olivos, and sold in Los Olivos by a
family that has been here for over 25 years.
We have decided to dedicate our newly remodeled Downtown Los
Olivos tasting room exclusively to these wines.
Andrew Murray Vineyards Club Members are offered complimentary tastings
in DTLO as a member perk. I urge you to
give them a try, before they are all gone.
While you are there, you can browse our updated collection of books and
bar accessories, including some of my favorite shakers, shrubs, mixes, and
bitters, while listening to vintage vinyl tunes. We look forward to seeing you soon!
