Professional Wine Reviews for Cimarossa Vineyards Cabernet Sauvignon Riva De Ponente 2013

Rated 95 by Vinous Media
Graphite, smoke, savory herbs, crushed rocks and inky fruit race across the palate in Cimarossa's 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon Riva di Ponente. Tense and pulsating in the glass, the 2013 is all about structure, acidity and tannin. As such, the Riva di Ponente will appeal most to readers who appreciate the structure of mountain Cabernets. The 2013 is every bit as impressive as it was last year. (Vinous)
Rated 93 by Wine Advocate
As for the 2013 Riva di Ponente, this comes from a 1.4-acre vineyard with a full western exposure essentially on the other side of the hilltop where Cimarossa is located. The wine exhibits a similar opaque purple color and a full-bodied, dense, pure style. It seems to have the highest level of tannins of all four wines and is the most backward as well, but rich and balanced, with impressive length. I would put this one in the cellar for a good 3-4 years and drink it over the following two decades.

Winery Cimarossa Vineyards

Appellation: Napa Valley

In the United States of America, one wine region seems to stand head and shoulders above all others. The Napa Valley of California has long been considered one of the world's premier wine regions, and the wineries which operate in this idyllic landscape now have generations of expertise when it comes to coaxing the very finest flavors and aromas from the imported varietals which thrive there. Cabernet Sauvignon, Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, Merlot and Zinfandel have become the flagship grape varietals of the Napa Valley, however, recent years have seen much expansion and experimentation undertaken by the large and small wineries which call the valley their home. With ideal climatic conditions for viticulture, and wonderfully rich and fertile soils, the Napa Valley continues to grow and impress each year.
