St. Supéry Vineyards Cabernet Franc Napa Valley 2004

Winemaker's Notes:

Great depth of both aromas and flavors. The wine begins with hints of coco, blackberries and toasted oak. Upon further investigation, one picks up kirsch and black cherries. elegant, supple and gracefully balanced, and finishing with a lively burst of ripe fruit and firm yet supple tannins this one is one not to be missed. Drink now through 2014.

This wine is bold,bodacious, and bountiful....rich, bright, smooth, this wine will make your tongue thank you for choosing a fantastically crafted wine that brings the thunder as Gary Vaynerchuk would say. Enjoy with dinner or on its own, its very nice!

Jet black and dense with an enormous core of white pepper and spice, this 2004 Petit Verdot is a show stopper. Aromas of blackberry and truffle are found just below the surface. While massive in structure, the palate is filled with blackberries, clove and plum. The tannins are soft and round producing an incredibly long finish.

This cab has some moves! It starts out with notes of black licorice and ripe cherries and leads into the flavor profile much the same way. In the mid palate it offers up a level shot of espresso and knocks you out flat on the finish. Whew!

great color. nose of dark ripe cherries, cassis.....yet the nose seems a little hot, and the heat doesn't hit the nose quite like the heat of alcohol, but more in the top and back of the nose. The taste does not reflect the heat of the nose, but carries the flavors of sweet black currant, a smooth, velvety texture. The back end falls apart a bit and is a little salty at the end - probably a yummy wine to have with food....steak anyone?

Great depth of both aromas and flavors. The wine begins with hints of coco, blackberries and toasted oak. Upon further investigation, one picks up kirsch and black cherries. elegant, supple and gracefully balanced, and finishing with a lively burst of ripe fruit and firm yet supple tannins this one is one not to be missed.

A rare 100% Cabernet Sauvignon from Napa Valley. Selected from some of the original plantings on St. Supery's estate, Dollarhide, this wine has voluptuous aromas of plum, crème de cassis and tobacco. Flavors are rich and intense with blackberry and truffle with espresso notes. It drinks well now with sizable tannins but has the balance to age for the long haul. Drink now – 2014.
