I was excited to hear that Prophetess is one of the top wines Robert Parker has ever tasted, and I have to wholeheartedly agree! Curt Schalchlin has been crafting some of the most amazingly, well-priced, widely-praised Rhone blends for over a decade. His wines have made him (and me) many friends.  The Prophetess bottling, Curt’ smallest bottling, sells out within weeks of its release, and with this 95 Point rating it will probably even go faster!  So don’t procrastinate!

 

95 Point Rating:  “A multi-vintage blend that's from 2013 and 2014, the 13/14 Prophetess is a blend of 73% Syrah and 27% Mourvèdre, fermented with a touch stems (only from the Syrah) and aged in 40% new barrels. It's deep ruby/purple/opaque color is followed by killer notes of black raspberries, cassis, smoke meats and dried flowers. Probably the finest vintage I've tasted from Kurt, is has full-bodied richness, an elegant, silky, seamless personality and no hard edges. It's already impossible to resist.” - Jeb Dunnuck (formerly of Robert Parker's Wine Advocate)

 

Winemaker Notes: "How did they talk you into this? You pull open the heavy deep ruby colored drapes and poke your head into a dim room which smells of blackberry and blueberry hookah smoke, exotic pepper, dried flowers and fennel smoked meats. She says she’s been waiting for you. Glancing back at your friends you roll your eyes as you step inside and release the velvety curtain behind you. She sips cassis from a rustic goblet and motions for you to sit. You don’t know how long it’s been but you exit into the night stunned and a bit confused. She couldn’t have known. But she did."
