Summers Knights Valley Andriana’s Cuvée Cabernet Sauvignon, 2007
Summers Knights Valley Andriana’s Cuvée is a blend of small lots of handcrafted Cabernet Sauvignon wine that the Summers family grows and produces from grapes planted at their home ranch. Situated between Napa and Alexander Valley. 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. 90 Points Robert Parker’s
BTG $ 9.00 Retail $22.99

Cade Napa Cuvée Cabernet Sauvignon, 2008 (from Plumpjack)
76% Cabernet Sauvignon (Calistoga, Rutherford, Howell Mtn, 10% Petit Verdot (Rutherford, Calistoga), 7% Malbec (Rutherford), 5 % Cabernet Franc
(Calistoga), 2% Merlot (Oak Knoll)
the 2008 Cade Cuvée is a worthy successor to the 2007 (92 Points). The inclusion of 7% Malbec gives the wine a juiciness and fruit forwardness. Aromas of black cherry, plums and milk chocolate are followed on the palate with flavors of cocoa, blackberries and warm cherry pie filling. Much
more approachable upon release than the 2007, there is a sense of balance that will allow the wine to age. 92 points Robert Parker

Retail $49.99
