75 Wine Company "The Sum" Red Blend California Napa Napa Valley Beckstoffer Tuck 2008
This amazingly well endowed profoundly rich red wine must be smelled and tasted to be believed. The color is a rich, deep purple garnet and gives but a small hint as to what’s inside. The nose gives off soaring and wonderfully focused aromas of ripe stone fruit, vanilla, cherries, cedar cigar box, blackberries and cinnamon. In the mouth, there are layers upon layers of broad, sweet opulent fruit balanced by firm tannins, great acidity and oak. This wine truly showcases the potential of blending and is a must have.
The Seventy-Five Wine Company is dedicated to pioneering change by producing premium wines of great distinction at reasonable prices. The Seventy-Five Wine Company has an honest and historic connection to the vineyards of northern California. All grapes are organically grown and sustainably farmed. The high elevation sunlight combined with the rich volcanic red soils and obsidian fragments produce quality grapes that are extremely unique to the Red Hills area.
This wine is a wonderful blend - if you like The Prisoner (Orin Swift), this is a bit less in price and almost as good.....Wonderful full bodied nose. Fruits, jam, spice and perfectly blended. Same with the flavors - very smooth finish - no disappointment if you like blends!!
Chilled and let sit for a while - very strong nose - lots of pepper and black cherry - this is a wonderful blend - no disappointments here - lovely after 1.5 hours - a little more age and this wine will be sensational. For a 2008 it is incredible.
Big bold cab just like I love
Two and a half glasses

Intense and spicy, with a mix of dried currant, herb, cola, pepper and spice. Full-bodied, firm and complex, this has a pleasant rustic appeal. Cabernet Sauvignon, Petite Sirah and Syrah. Drink now through 2015.
The real star, and a great bargain, is the 2007 The Sum - The Seventy-Five Wine Company. This is an absolute steal when it comes to high-class wine. A blend of 75% Cabernet Sauvignon, 15% Syrah, and 10% Petite Sirah, there are 5,200 cases of this wine, which is truly outstanding and an amazing value. Sweet blue and black fruits, camphor, and spice box all jump from the glass of this dense, medium to full-bodied, juicy, supple wine, which is a hedonist's dream come true. This is a beauty to drink over the next 4-5 years. California and Napa Valley need wines like this. Don't dare pass it by!
Rich and dramatic, this blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah and Petite Sirah offers smooth, unctuous flavors of cherries, black raspberries, chocolate and pepper. It's a seductively appealing wine, with thick, refined tannins and a dry finish. Should gain in the bottle over the next 4-6 years. Great price for the quality.
