There are times when I feel like I have opened bottles of this wine too you g, and times when I feel like I have waited too long. But on this day, Summa was singing a beautiful song. Gorgeous acidity, deep raspberry and sour cherry fruit shot through with a dusting of dried sage and other herbs, and a lovely dried flower and citrus bite that lingered for a long time. Fantastic.

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.

Delicious, better on day two quite ripe but acid of 10’ still quite evident. Dark kirsch and monumental finish.

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