2001 St. Supery Elu Red Meritage
Wonderful harmony, intensity and concentration of cherry-vanilla, rose petal and cassis are found in the aroma. On the palate juicy blackberry, red currant and black cherry notes are well balanced and rich without being overpowering. Ripe and supple tannins finish long and lingering. This is a beautiful wine that will only improve over the next few years. 80% Cabernet Sauvignon 14% Merlot, 4% Cabernet Franc 2% Petit Verdot
Wine Enthusiast"From a producer that thoroughly understands Napa Bordeaux wines comes this classically proportioned blend, with is dominated by Cabernet Sauvignon. It impresses by its balance, elegance and richness. The blackberry and cherry flavors are enriched with oak, leading to a long and satisfying finish. Drink now through 2010."
