Summers Estate Wines Diamond Mountain District Checkmate
The Summers Checkmate Cabernet Sauvignon is produced from the best barrels out of hundreds in Summers Cellar. We’ve blended this wine from the finest estate vineyard lots of the Diamond Mountain District in Napa Valley. Our handcrafted Checkmate—a “Grandmaster,” offers notes of roasted coffee, cocoa and black currants. To round out the flavors in this full-bodied, beautifully rich red colored and opulent textured wine, we use small amounts of Petite Verdot. The wine aged for 22 months using French Oak barrels. Full, round, richly flavored and balanced. Deep ripe fruit characters with hints of vanilla and spice. Finishes with rich but soft tannins with dark chocolate flavor and sweet mouth feel from the oak.
