Summers Winery Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley Andriana's Cuvée 2010
Knights Valley lies at the base of Mount St. Helena, situated between the Napa and Alexander Valleys. Beautiful weather and rolling hills of alluvial and volcanic soils make this a distinctive site to grow quality grapes. This wine displays balance, massive structure, length, and elegance with fruit aromas of black cherry and blackberry, and spicy notes of clover.
Minerally black fruit nose, with black pepper. Dry even body with rich fruit tones in the finish.
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
Summer's Knights Valley Cabernet has wonderful structure and intensity. Lots of dark fruit/cocoa powder aromatics with hints of allspice and clove make this a good choice for the dinner table.
We're so fond of the Summers Knights Valley Cabernet - we'll pay the shipping if you order a case!!! Summer's Knights Valley Cabernet has wonderful structure and intensity.
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.
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.
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.
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.
