St. Supéry Vineyards Red Bordeaux Blend Napa Valley Élu Meritage 2003

Winemaker's Notes:

From the out start the 2003 Elú is an amazing wine, there is great depth of both aroma and flavor. 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 supple tannins this one is one not to be missed. Drink now through 2013.

Aged version shows character. The shows a dusty, leathery nose. Shows aged cab characters but still with good red fruit. Would love to start an Elu vertical.

84 Points - Straight out of the bottle, the body on this wine has a vibrant purple core trailing to a brickish red. On the nose, a captivating blend of crushed violets, red currants and raspberry concentrate. Additionally, notes of plum and prune presented as well with a touch of heat. In the mouth, this wine was soft and elegant on the palate. It was contemplative, with mild dried berry fruit showing on the front and moves gracefully across the mid palate. It finished dry and somewhat quick. For the Élu blend being primary Cabernet Sauvignon, the tannins were lighter and less textured than expected. As far as faults, it showed a touch raisiny which might be attributed its warm serving temperature. If I could turn back time, I would have aspired to review it at 16 degrees Celsius and given it some time in a decanter to mellow it out.

Wine & Spirits ReviewA sleek Napa Valley cabernet, this is bright and black at once, richly oaked with generous blue fruit and baked black cherry flavors hinting at what may come with time. It's dense enough now for a black-and-blue steak.Wine Tasting Notes84% Cabernet Sauvignon, 12% Merlot, 4% Petit Verdot. Historically one of St. Supery's most awarded wines. Rich, ripe aromas fill the glass with sweet berry fruit and attractive tones of oak, chocolate and anise. Flavors of briar berry, toasted oak, and licorice. An elegant wine with a velvety finish.
