St. Supery Elu 2005

St. Supery, Napa Valley, Elu 2005 The nose features Cassis and cigar box, some leafy, Bordeauxish character, complex and sprinkled as if with fresh tobacco. In the mouth this wine is chewy yet approachable, enhanced with oak. Think of serving this with Ribeye and giving it a few years in the cellar.

The grapes behind this wine are 75% Cabernet Sauvignon, 19% Merlot and a bit of Cab Franc and Petit Verdot. Produced and bottled in Rutherford 14.3% $65 at the winery for the latest ’07, I don’t know about the price on this one as it was a gift from a friend. St. Supery
