Food Pairings for St. Supery Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon
Editorial Reviews for St. Supery Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon
Spicy and sweet on the nose with big toasted oak aromas over a base of black currant fruit. A bit matte in the mouth, this is fairly powerful and rich with dense flavors of pencil lead, smokey oak, black currant and candied black plum fruit all topped with a nice hint of mint. The finish is dry and chewy, this is a wine you could age over the short term 2-5 years, and a bit of time certainly would help to tame some of these tannins. Today this is a dark, inky, richly flavored wine that relies on oak as much as fruit for flavor. A powerhouse at this price. 89pts
Light on the nose with hints of toasted nuts, cocoa, tobacco, mint and vanilla over red currant and plum fruit. This shows off a lovely herbal perfume on entry followed by a nice red currant, raspberry and plum skin mid-palate that’s nicely framed with well-judged oak notes. There's actually quite a bit of peppery spice here on the palate, with layered oak flavors that are well balanced by the fruit, fruit that remains fresh and transparent in the mouth. The oak turns a touch bitter for a moment on the finish, then the fruit returns with a hint of bacon fat and persistent earthy spice. Lean, fresh and elegant, this is balanced for the cellar but already very attractive with a fairly light-handed winemaking style. 93pts
Well balanced and smooth
Cherry cola and warm spice on the nose. Dark fruit flavors with a bit of dusty eucalyptus leaf and dark chocolate.
Elegant might not be the first word that jumps to your mind when thinking about a 100% Petit Verdot but St. Supery is nothing but. Not to say it isn't also a fairly big wine with persistent yet very ripe tannins. This wine definitely has weight in every part of it but it carries that weight well, think Gothic Cathedral. Blackberry jam, clove, cinnamon, cedar and tobacco all lifted up by a nice underlying acidity. This wine started me on my search for lesser known varietal bottlings.
A bit of black cherry funk and a dollop of vanilla cream with some tannins mixed in...definitely a food wine that is complex but not quite as deep as I like my cabs.
Dark, rich gobs of flavor with vibrant currant, cherry and berry. Toasty oak nuance and big tannins. Powerful and balanced with a long, lovely finish. Finely tuned and wonderful. - Tasted at winery 4/20/10
Gift from my brother. Smooth, fruity very drinkable. Lived this wine
External Reviews for St. Supery Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon
Intense aromas of black currant and black plum dominate, combining with subtle elements of espresso, anise and dark toasted French oak.
Illustrates with tremendous hues of purples and reds. Aromas of blackberry and black plum integrate with tight smoky oak, a note of anise and dark molassas. Flavors of blackberry and cassis follow with a dusty sense of terroir, bright vanillin oak and a structured espresso finish.
Luxurious, rich and concentrated with aromas of cherry, currant and blueberry. These are just the start of this 2006 Cabernet Sauvignon. The harmonious flavors of black cherry, anise and plush cassis explode upon tasting. This is a classic Napa Valley Cabernet which is wonderful young but has everything it needs to age beautifully.
Aromas of plum and black cherry permeate this inky, garnet hued Bordeaux blend. Flavors of smooth vanilla and hints of tobacco are present on the long, full finish. This wine is seamless from the beginning to the last sip; it will age beautifully and develop its flavors in the bottle.
Medium weight for the vintage, with spicy cherry and raspberry fruit presented in an accessible, easy-to-drink style. Drink now through 2006. 30,994 cases made. -JL Wine Spectator. A Cabernet Sauvignon wine from California in USA. 1999 St Supery Vineyards Cabernet Sauvignon Napa 1500ml
This Cabernet Sauvignon presents with dense vibrant red and purple notes. Rich, velvet flavors of black plum and currant combine with mocha, brown sugar, and deeply toasted oak. Ripe blackberry flavors are enhanced with dark chocolate and espresso beans, vanillin and sweet molasses. This is an opulent, centered and well structured wine.
