Cellar/Tasting Notes
“Cimarossa” means ‘red hill top’ in Italian, which aptly defines this very special hillside vineyard planted on a volcanic cinder cone. The Vineyard is a special place: the clusters are small, the berries are tiny, but the flavors are BIG!

This wine exhibits the classic Howell Mountain richness and density with the blueberry/blackberry that is normally collected from this great Cabernet site. Perhaps the longest lived Cimarossa the vineyard has had since the 2003, this will be one to try on release but consider cellaring and trying it over a long lifetime.
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate (RP): 96
"The fabulous 2011 Cabernet Sauvignon Cimarossa Vineyard offers additional evidence of how brilliant this vintage turned out on this high elevation, mountain AVA. Tor told me the crop reached perfect ripeness on Howell Mountain, and the result is a wine of great intensity and lots of mulberry, blackberry and violet-infused notes intermixed with a hint of graphite, a full-bodied richness and a layered mouthfeel. One of the stars of the vintage, this beauty should be consumed over the next 15+ years."
Antonio Galloni- Vinous (AG): 95
"The 2011 Cabernet Sauvignon Cimarossa Vineyard shows just how great the vintage was in some spots, much of Howell Mountain in particular. Savory herbs, tobacco, menthol, licorice and cloves are some of the many notes that meld together in a wine of remarkable complexity, nuance and finesse. Firm, structured and deeply expressive, the 2011 boasts tons of energy and pure brilliance. The mountain tannins need time to soften, but further bottle age should do the trick."
