California Cabernet Sauvignon 2014

2014. Looked in the cellar for a not too tannic red wine to pair with grilled steak and asparagus and this unoaked cab fits the bill perfectly! — 6 months ago

Vignavillej Dolcetto d'Alba 2019

Delectable Wine
9.0

The 2019 Dolcetto d'Alba Vignavillej is a deep, fleshy and voluminous wine. Inky blue/purplish fruit, spice, leather and licorice are all amplified in this decidedly large-scaled Dolcetto from Brovia. Most of this fruit is from the family's Brea property in Serralunga. $19.00 (Antonio Galloni, Vinous, January 2022) — 10 months ago

Ca'mia Barolo Nebbiolo 2011

DAY 1
Served with the Vinlog System
👃Wonderful if slightly reticent. Deep, fresh, and perfumed
👅Not fully open? After > 3 hours: elegant, floral, polished. Silky tannins. Lovely finish

The remaining wine was Slow Decanted™️ in my refrigerator

Revisited the wine on two more occasions

DAY 14
Several hours in the glass…
👃Red and purple fruits. Tar with light florals. Bright and chalky
👅Significant fruit with tar, earth, licorice. Spicy
raspberry/cranbery on the long finish. Drinking
well


Fratelli Brovia remains somewhat under the radar despite producing first tier traditionally styles barolos from excellent vineyards
This Brea has the density expected of a Serralunga barolo coupled with the finesse, nuance, & drinkability that comes from excellent winemaking.
-Pretty lightfooted for a hot vintage
-Totally enjoyable after some time in the
glass on all 3 occasions👏🍷

@Daniel Bloom I am evaluating 2011 barolo currently and I have been impressed with them at this stage in their evolution. I didn’t go very deep on the vintage because it was more difficult than other vintages in that era: such as 08, 10, 13 🍷
