Cuvee Andriana’s CS
The Summers Andriana’s Cuvee is a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon grapes procured from several select vineyards in Napa and Sonoma Counties, including the Summers’ own vineyards. A medium-bodied wine with a deep ruby plum color, rich in texture, showing notes of black currant, cedar and spice.
Our handcrafted 2014 Checkmate—a “Grandmaster,” offers notes of roasted coffee, cocoa and black currants. To round out the flavors in this full-bodied, beautifully rich red colored and opulent textured wine, we use small amounts of Petit Verdot and other varietals. The wine aged for 29 months using French Oak barrels.
Cabernet Sauvignon Estate
Summers produces our exquisite and highly-rated Calistoga Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon from a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon grapes procured from several select vineyards in Calistoga. An all-occasion wine with generous dark flavored fruit and expansive, powerful, mouth feel! We’re proud to bring you a wine that reflects the quality and care we’ve put into our own estate vineyard.
Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon
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 22 months resulting in medium to 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.
Calistoga “Two-Acre” Estate Zinfandel
Our Estate Zinfandel wine is produced from two acres of Zinfandel grapes grown and hand-tended on our Calistoga Estate vineyard. Ignacio Blancas, winemaker, tends the two acres of “Old Vine” zinfandel carefully all year, and hand selects only the very best grape clusters at harvest time. The wine is made in small lots and aged in a combination of French and American Oak barrels for 18 months. Production is limited to 250 cases per year. Enjoy discovering the layers of complex cherry, blackberry, and spice flavors, culminating in a long supple finish.
