Cimarossa-Cabernet Sauvignon-"Riva di Levante" Howell Mountain, Napa Valley-2010

Cabernet Sauvignon
"Riva di Levante" Howell Mountain, Napa Valley


“Riva di Levante” is a terraced, east-facing (morning/afternoon sun), vineyard on red loam soil. While it proudly bears Howell Mountain structure, power and intensity, this block of vines adds a little “elegance” to the bottle. Truffle-coated blackberries, woodsmoke, licorice, espresso…grip of tannins on the roof of the mouth. Best drinking 2010-20. Mia Klein, Winemaker.
“Sweet dark raspberries, flowers, mint and spices all woven together. Subtle, refined and totally polished. Underlying mountain tannins are nicely balanced by the fruit. A sexy, intriguing wine to drink through 2025.” Antonio Galloni for TWA, December 2012
