Summers Winery Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley Andriana's Cuvée 2006
Summers Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon is grown on our Estate Villa Andriana vineyard in deep loamy, volcanic soils. This vintage represents true Cabernet Sauvignon character. Our Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon is aged in French oak barrels for 21 months resulting in medium to dark ruby colored wine and sweet French vanilla notes. Summers vineyard management and wine style are realized in this signature Cabernet Sauvignon exhibiting rich black cherry and cassis flavors to the wonderful mid-palate, excellent texture and tannic structure. Suggested Food Pairings: Grilled Beef with Carmelized Onions.
I'm not a cab guy.. and this.. was... juicy. awe-some. Plus the added "wine aficionado" appeal at a "beer guy" price... plus you can't find it at Kroger's - score!
External Reviews for Summers Winery Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley Andriana's Cuvée
The serious 2006 Cabernet Sauvignon Andrianarsquo;s Cuvee is a 6,500-case, 100% Cabernet Sauvignon that spent 20 months in French oak. It possesses a dark ruby/purple color as well as good structure and density, plenty of loamy soil, black currant, herb, and spice characteristics, and 5ndash;6 years of drinkability.
The 2007 Cabernet Sauvignon Andrianarsquo;s Cuvee is composed of estate fruit blended with purchased grapes. It reveals an open-knit bouquet of sweet black cherries, plums, earth and spice. Made in a more plush style than the Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon, it is a medium-bodied, generously endowed, seductive red to enjoy now and over the next decade.
Very ripe, showing upfront grilled blackberry and black currant flavors with hints of violets and licorice, and a firm application of smoky oak. Shows a pleasingly dry, classic structure. Best now, and a good buy for this price in upscale Napa Cab.
A terrific bargain is the 2005 Cabernet Sauvignon Adriannarsquo;s Cuvee. Finding a good 100% Napa Cabernet Sauvignon for under $50 a bottle is no easy task. Finding an excellent one is almost impossible. But that is exactly what this elegant, tasty, black currant, cedar, licorice, and spice box-scented 2005 delivers. The classic Cabernet aromas are followed by a medium to full-bodied wine with loads of fruit, soft tannin, and a long finish. It should drink well for 5ndash;8 years. Readers should not hesitate to check out this value-priced offering.
