From the warm Calistoga area of the Napa Valley comes this mega-deal today -- seriously, if you love rich, dark, intense, sexy, plush Napa Cab, do whatever you must to grab a few. We only have about 15 cases to sell at this astounding price!
Jim Summers originally purchased a 28-acre vineyard in Knights Valley in 1987. His first thought was to retire from banking and spend time as a grape grower, but in 1992, a friend and winemaker made the first small production of Summers Ranch Merlot wine. After that first wine was bottled, labeled and sold under the Summers Ranch label, Jim realized he liked being in the wine business. In a few years’ time (1996 to be exact), he and Beth purchased the Summers Estate Wines property, located on Tubbs Lane in Calistoga, allowing them to produce wines with a Napa Valley appellation.
This wine was blended by current winemaker/rockstar KIRK VENGE. Rich, dark and packed as we noted, but here’s the 93-point Wine Spectator review: “Ripe and fleshy in feel, with layers of steeped red currant, plum and blackberry fruit, laced with tobacco, singed cedar and sage notes. Features a dense finish but shows good cut, with a buried iron accent. Best from 2020 through 2032. Tasted twice, with consistent notes. 900 cases made.”
Amazing! While it lasts!
