St. Supéry Napa Valley Estate Cabernet Sauvignon 2009
Our Napa Valley Estate Cabernet Sauvignon presents with deep vibrant red and purple shades. Intense aromas of black currant and black plum dominate, combining with subtle elements of espresso, anise and dark toasted French oak. Flavors follow with blackberry and black plum, molasses and a sweet fruit ripeness entwined with a note of dark cocoa. This is a rich, structured wine with excellent depth and flavor.
Editorial Reviews for St. Supéry Napa Valley Estate 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
This Cab is deep dark and vibrant. It has immediate intense aromas of sweet juicy black cherries and bitter chocolate with a slight peppery slap on the nose. On the palate it explodes with fruits of overripe berries and plum. There is a mild sweetness that lingers with a fullness that never wants to end. This wine is rich and wonderfully moreish. A big red with a big bite - loved it – my type of Cab. For me this is absolutely a winter wine but I fully enjoyed in the summer.
Well balanced and smooth
