96 Points - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate:
"Made from 100% Cabernet Franc, the 2015 Cabernet Franc Howell Mountain has a very deep purple-black color, revealing a drop dead gorgeous perfume of red roses, violets and black tea over a core of kirsch, red currants and black raspberries, with wafts of cinnamon stick and dried herbs. Medium-bodied, very finely textured and refreshing in the mouth, it offers wonderful perfumed red fruit layers and a long, mineral-laced finish. 522 cases produced." - Lisa Perrotti-Brown (Dec 2017)

95 Points - Wine Spectator Magazine:
"This is vivid and beautifully rendered, with a dense yet racy core of unadulterated cassis, boysenberry and blackberry puree flavors, flecked with anise, light bramble and polished ganache notes. The long finish shows a great tug of tarry earth while the fruit drives on. Best from 2021 through 2040. 1,700 cases made." - JM (Web Only - 2018)

93 Points & Cellar Selection - Wine Enthusiast Magazine (2013 vintage):
"This wine is sourced from a unique block in the heart of the appellation and the producer's 165-acre estate, rich in sedimentary rock fragments of quartz and fossils. It's lush and soft on the palate, with leather, ripe red berry and cassis flavors. The tannins are strong and wrapped tenaciously around the fruit, requiring further time in bottle; drink 2020–2028." - Virginie Boone (5/1/2017)

"A soft and juicy red with a blackberry and black-olive character. Dark chocolate, too. Some green olives. Medium to full body, firm tannins and a flavorful finish. Drink or hold." (May 2018)

90 Points & Editors’ Choice - Wine Enthusiast Magazine:
"A great value from the great producer, this includes 5% Touriga, 4% Petite Sirah and 1% of mixed other grapes. Together, they offer juicy cherry notes and a big imprint of toasted tannin, the backbone of oak substantial yet soft and approachable. The finish is all mocha." - Virginie Boone (2/1/2019)

93 Points - Antonio Galloni's Vinous:
"The 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon is just as appealing today as it was last year. Supple, open-knit and expressive, the 2014 will drink well with minimal cellaring. Floral and savory notes add an attractive upper register in this mid-weight, juicy 2014. Bright red stone fruit, plum and savory notes abound on the finish. This is a gorgeous Napa Valley Cabernet from David Ramey that shows just how appealing 2014 can be." - Antonio Galloni (Mar 2017)

95 Points - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate:
"
A surprise, big-time sleeper for me, as I have no previous experience with this winery. The 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon is a dense ruby/purple, the wine shows plenty of blueberry and black raspberry fruit, cassis, licorice and incense. It hits the palate with the oak nicely disguised. The wine has beautiful texture, a full body, terrific purity and palate presence. It should drink nicely for 15-20 years, and merit serious attention. Apparently just over 550 cases were produced of this wine." - Robert M. Parker, Jr. (Dec 2015

95 Points - James Suckling:
"Love the nose here with dark fruit, fresh mushrooms and hot stones. Medium to full body, firm and silky tannins and a long and flavorful finish. Classy red. Give it two or three years to soften. Best ever from here?" - (January 27, 2017)

92 Points - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate:
"The 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon Rive Di Cimarossa has a dense ruby/purple color, classic lead pencil shavings intermixed with blackcurrant, mulberry and blackberry fruit. That dense color is followed by a full-bodied wine with sweet tannin, low acidity and outstanding ripeness and purity. Drink it now and over the next 15-20 years." - Robert M. Parker, Jr. (Oct 2016)
