This is the first of the 14 and this confirms there has been a shift in the profile of Summa over the last several vintages. These have trended towards all red fruit and don’t show the dark fruit, spice notes, and orange peel that are rivers-marie hallmarks. This is very light bodied and translucent, has medium acidity and a nice alc level at only 13.4% but it tastes like those strawberry wrapper candies you get at grandmas house and that flavor is very pronounced. The last couple vintages have shown this as well and as it ages it turns more sour and and more brandied (as I experienced in a couple recent bottles of the 12). I’m still a fan of the house, but think I’m done with this vineyard.

Has developed really nice secondary complexity while retaining a good amount of primary fruit. Balanced. Fresh. Long. Beautiful stuff.

2004 vintage aging glacially. Full youthful nose of cranberry, sour cherry, grapefruit zest and spice. Medium weight sweet cherry fruit with bright juicy acidity. Structure working well with still plush fruit. Tangy, long finish. This tastes so freaking young - could be a 3-4 year old wine.

This is a very big wine, not in any way finessed or delicate. Deliciously surprising. And surprisingly tooth staining!
