Riva di Ponente Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon 2011

I’ve lost count how many times I’ve said this, but this is another example of a 2011 vintage Napa cab that is just absolutely superb! I’ve had a few 2011 Cimarossa offerings and each one has been a highlight of the vintage. At pop and pour, I couldn’t believe the profile this was reminded me of a Ridge Montebello aromatically, as if I had tasted this blind I would have called some use of American oak wrapped in truly elegant black cherries, black currant, and savory herbs de Provence spices. The longer it was open the more it gained power, adding notes of dark chocolate, bay leaf, Cimarossa’s signature red clay and black plum with a big flavor packed dark berry pie tannic finish. Bravo! — 10 months ago

@Shay A: I agree with you. I really like many 2011’s. Very underrated vintage. Good winemakers make good wines in all vintages.

After drinking a few of these in a short period of time I’m getting more of the sense of the “Montebello” house style. This one is more restrained and slightly more austere than the 2010. On the nose, tobacco, cassis and earl grey tea. In the mouth, grippy tannins, dark fruit, black tea, acid. Long finish. Like all MB, needs time, but totally accessible now. Yum. — a month ago

Ca' Montebello di Scarani Luigi

Oltrepò Pavese Pinot Nero 2019

Light hay and mineral aromas
On the palate, those notes are lifted by medium+ tart apple acidity and refreshing frizzante. Touch of flintiness on the finish.
