St. Supery "ELU" Red Blend
94 Points - James Suckling
Sandalwood, terracotta, balsamic, cedar, tobacco and then a nice helping of dark plums, blueberry essence, walnuts and dark chocolate. Full body, plus tannins, lovely acidity and a long finish.
Notes from the Winemaker
This wine presents with deep shades of reds and purples. Aromas of dark fruit, blackberry, and black plum combine with elements of espresso, vanilla, and molasses, as well as notes of smoky oak and dusty terroir. Flavors of dark plum and cassis follow with anise and toasted barrel attributes. This red blend offers a finely textured silky structure with density and a graceful appeal.
Blend: 74% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% Merlot, 7% Malbec, 5% Cabernet Franc, 4% Petit Verdot
