Calistoga on Snooth

  • Depending on traffic, shipping grapes from up near Calistoga to Yountville could take 1/2 an hour or more.  Lots of grapes have to get trucked an hour or so, although it's far from the best thing.  Some winemakers will contract with someone closer or use a custom crush facility nearer the source--Bell does this with wines they make from Oregon g...

  • Summers Winery Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley Reserve 2012

    Snoothrank:

    Classic big and powerful red fruit aromas of raspberry and cherry with good age indicators like well tanned leather and tobacco. Similarly structured on the palate, with the addition of cherry cola and candied sugar dates, clay, eucalyptus and licorice. This powerful and delicious wine can easily age for several years. 90pts Read More

  • Summers Cabernet Sauvignon Calistoga 2011

    Snoothrank:

    Light red fruit aromas of cherry and raspberry. Flavors are bold and fresh, with tart acidity bracing the bright cherry flavors, light brown sugar, black licorice and a hint of cocoa powder. Tannins are noticeable but not gripping - a fine Cabernet that isn't overpowering. 90pts Read More
