A nice minty, herbaceous edge greets the nose, adding freshness here to the slightly oaky and hard dark currant fruit. This smells unforgiving. Tight on entry, there's a good amount of fruit here, but this is not fleshy and plump but rather focused and crisp, medium weight with black cherry and currant fruit topped with a hint of mint and laid over a base of cedary oak. This seems to need some time in the bottle, not soft but neither oppressive for its a slightly fruit-driven classic Napa Valley Cabernet, though perhaps not representative of the typical warmth of Calistoga. The finish shows more of the oak, dry and nutty with lingering vanilla sweetness matched by the compressed cherry fruit and ending with a touch of smoke on the finale. Should benefit from 1-3 years in the cellar. 87pts

Delightfully dark earthy nose, with vegetative red pepper, complex vanilla notes, and cherries. The body is very smooth and easy to drink, with moderate tannins and bits of marshmallow toast on the finish.

Just as Andriana Summers has grown up, so has Summers Villa Andriana Vineyard. With the maturity of both Andriana and the Villa Andriana Vineyard, comes our first ever Summers Calistoga Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon. This wine is a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon grapes procured from several select vineyards in Calistoga, including the Summers own Villa Andriana Vineyard. A medium-bodied wine with fruity sweet, black cherry and black currant notes interwoven with notions of barbeque smoke, white chocolate and espresso. Were proud to bring you a wine that reflects the quality and care weve put into our own estate vineyards. - Winery
