Summers Reserve Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2016
Summers Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon is grown on our Estate Villa Andriana vineyard and select mountain vineyards in the Calistoga area. Grown in deep loamy, volcanic soils, our Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon is aged in French oak barrels for 23 months resulting in dark ruby colored wine and sweet French vanilla notes. Summers vineyard management and wine styles are realized in this signature Cabernet Sauvignon exhibiting rich black cherry and cassis flavors to the wonderful mid-palate, excellent texture and tannic structure.
Ripe and fleshy in feel, with layers of steeped red currant, plum and blackberry fruit, laced with tobacco, singed cedar and sage notes. Features a dense finish but shows good cut, with a buried iron accent. Best from 2020 through 2032. Tasted twice, with consistent notes. 900 cases made.
