Curvature: Wine with a Purpose

“Curvature has the polish, the depth, the juicy fruit of California, but it’s also got a little bit of elegance that some California wines don’t necessarily have.”

James Molesworth, Wine Spectator

One of the most successful professional female golfers of all time, Cristie Kerr has two additional passions: fine wine and fighting breast cancer. Touring the world on the pro golf circuit, Christie developed a unique love affair with wine and would one day like to become a sommelier. After watching her grandmother, mother and aunt fight breast cancer, Cristie sought a unique way to combine her passions: Thus Curvature was born. Playing off both Christie’s name and a woman’s unique curve, the sale of each bottle of these limited production wines goes to provide funding for breast cancer research and treatment programs.

In partnership with Pride Mountain vineyards and two amazingly strong women, Suzanne-Pride Bryan and Sally Johnson, Curvature produces critically acclaimed Chardonnays and Cabernet Sauvignons. Dating back to 1869, Pride Mountain is located close to the Napa/Sonoma county border line on Spring Mountain. Family owned since 1989, Pride Mountain today is led by Suzanne Pride-Bryan, a breast cancer survivor. Driven by an instance of excellence that begins in the vineyards, award winning winemaker Sally Johnson also comes from a family touched by cancer. Sourcing grapes both from Pride Mountain vineyards and the Napa Valley floor, Sally strives to craft all of the Curvature wines with balance, elegance and depth. Launched in 2006 the Curvature label bears the mark of three crescent moons reflecting the three strong women who stand behind each bottle.

The Wines of Curvature

  • Chardonnay 2012 
  • Cabernet Sauvignon 2010
The Bacigalupi Vineyard in the Russian River Valley, located on the Sonoma Coast, was the source of the grapes that won the 1976 Judgement of Paris. Made of 100% Chardonnay from this famous vineyard, this wine has been aged in French oak, 60% of which is new. The lush bouquet delivers flavors of narcissus, peach, green melon, honeysuckle and grapefruit. Thick and rich in texture, this wine coats the palate but remains balanced by bright acidity. With only 140 cases produced, this Chardonnay is a delicious and generous opportunity.

Only 150 cases of this 85.7% Cabernet Sauvignon and 14.3% Merlot blend were produced. A great depth of aromatics, courtesy of a long growing season, was enhanced by 30 months of aging in French oak barrels, of which 60% were new. On the nose this elegant wine delivers notes of plum, chocolate and mineral graphite. The palate is round and rich, with an approachable intensity delivered by the balance and silkiness of well integrated tannins.
