Good job by St. SupÃ©ry on this rich Cabernet, and kudos to them for holding back for four-plus years. Now mellow, it shows ripe blackberry and plum flavors, with a sweet coating of smoky oak. Delicious now and over the next several years
|Two vineyards - one in Rutherford at the heart of Napa Valley's Cabernet Sauvignon country, the other, Dollarhide, in a serene corner of Napa Valley - are the source of St. Supéry wines, most notably, celebrated Cabernet Sauvignons and Sauvignon Blanc.
St. Supery Vineyards & Winery is owned by the Skalli family of France. Robert Skalli's family has made wine for several generations in South of France. While traveling in Napa Valley during the 1970s, Robert was inspired to create an estate winery in Napa Valley to make wines of distinct and respectable character. Dollarhide, an historic cattle and horse ranch nestled among the hills of Napa Valley, was planted with the noble grape varieties of Bordeaux, France in the early 1980s. St. Supéry's Rutherford property became the home of the winery and first class Cabernet Sauvignon vineyards.
Today St. Supéry wines are enjoyed by people around the world in fine restaurants and during celebrations at home. The winery is a respected member of the Napa Valley vintner community and is a responsible steward of the 1500+ acres we own in this appellation known to be among the finest wine regions in the world.
