The 2014 Summers Checkmate Cabernet Sauvignon is our Grandmaster Cabernet Sauvignon blend. We have blended this wine from the finest estate vineyard lots of the Calistoga Vineyards we farm here in the Napa Valley. Aged for 29 months in French Oak barrels, we use small amounts of Petit Verdot and other varietals to round out the flavors in this full-bodied, beautifully rich, red colored and opulently textured wine.
