2014 SummitVine Cabernet Sauvignon 3 Liter Double Magnum
A collector's bottle designed for long-term aging and special occasions! From our Diamond Mountain SummitVine Ranch Estate. Etched & Hand Painted Bottle with Waxed Top. Only 6 bottles made.
The Diamond Mountain District is located in northwestern Napa Valley in the Mayacamas Mountains. Located 1400 feet above The Valley floor, the steep slopes of SummitVine Ranch allowed us only 6 of the meager 550 acres planted to vines in this highly revered AVA. With our porous volcanic soils and high-elevation climate, our vines produce distinctive earthy flavors, wrapped around rich, opulent and beautifully integrated tannins.
This is our second vintage of renown SummitVine Ranch Cabernet. On the nose, it opens with notes of raspberry and strawberry with hints of caramel. Tasting this wonderfully smooth wine you might discover lush dark fruit flavors and strawberry with the signature caramel and a dash of lavender. It all comes together beautifully balanced on the palate with soft integrated tannins on the finish. Still in its youth, we recommend opening one hour before serving to enjoy it now. This full bodied, complex and rich wine will please the most discriminating over the next 10-12 years.
100% Sophie's Vineyard at approximately 1675' Elevation.
