The Story:  Michael Klopka purchased the 150 acre estate in 1998, but it wasn’t a palatial estate – even a “diamond in the rough” was an understatement.  It was densly forested, nearly inaccessible woodland tract that choked sunlight.  It took a while to clear, and create 2 parcels (Cori and Sophie) totaling six acres of Bordeaux varietals.  Most of the fruit is sold, but a special section is kept for the SVR wines – only 150 cases are produced!  The first harvest was 2004, so with 10 year old till their first (Inaugural) release they had the time to experiment and release a great wine from the getgo.

 

The Wine :  The second release from this esate offers up amazing aromatics that jump out of the glass – red and black stone fruits, chocolate, a touch of volancic and anise.  On the palate this full bodied Cab shows of its great body and opulence that is very complex, rich and loaded with lush flavors of black currant, fig, crème de cassis and a whif of dark chocolate. This well-balanced wine finishes with more bold flavors and well-integrated, silky tannins.  Only 149 cases produced!

 

Wine Spectator says: “Ten High-Altitude Napa Cabernet Sauvignons: Add SummitVine to your list of wineries to watch”

 

Wine Spectator 93 Points: “Brimming with rich, lively dark berry and earth tones, this delivers a mix of currant, raspberry, red licorice, espresso and spicy oak notes.  Best of all, this glides along on the aftertaste.  Drink now through 2028.  149 cases made.”
