Wine Description

Introducing the St. Supery Elu Red 2017, a remarkable blend crafted by the skilled hands of winemaker Michael Scholz. This exquisite wine is a harmonious fusion of 77% Cabernet Sauvignon, 13% Merlot, 7% Petit Verdot, 2% Cabernet Franc, and a final 1% Malbec, achieving a wine that has garnered critical acclaim.

In the glass, the St. Supery Elu Red 2017 unveils deep shades of reds and purples, hinting at the depth and complexity within. The nose is a sensory journey, with aromas of juicy black plum, luscious milk chocolate, and subtle hints of anise. Toasted vanillin and molasses undertones add further intrigue.

Upon the first sip, flavors of dark plum and cassis take center stage, accompanied by notes of mocha and the subtle influence of toasted barrels. This wine offers a finely textured, silky structure with a remarkable density that gracefully captivates the palate.

The 2017 vintage of this Cabernet Sauvignon-led blend has received noteworthy critical acclaim. Jeb Dunnuck awarded it an impressive 91 points, noting its fleshy, supple nature and classic aromas of black cherry, currants, plums, incense, and chocolaty spice. James Suckling, with 93 points, celebrates its soft, juicy character with crushed berry and chocolate, complemented by hints of orange-peel and hazelnut, and a coffee-infused finish. Tasting Panel, rating this wine with an impressive 97 points, attests to its exceptional quality and allure.

The St. Supery Elu Red 2017 is a testament to meticulous winemaking, with hand-harvested fruit, careful sorting, and a warm fermentation process, followed by 20 months of maturation. A touch of French oak adds complexity, making this wine a delightful and age-worthy choice that will continue to evolve and captivate for a decade or more.

Jeb Dunnuck
The 2017 Cabernet Sauvignon Estate Elu checks in as 77% Cabernet Sauvignon, 13% Merlot, 7% Petit Verdot, 2% Cabernet Franc, and the final 1% Malbec. This fleshy, supple 2017 offers medium to full-bodied richness, just a hint of chewy tannins, and classic aromas of black cherry, currants, plums, incense, and chocolaty spice. It's nicely balanced, has plenty of fruit, and is going to keep for 10-15 years or more.

A soft, juicy red with loads of crushed berry and chocolate, as well as some orange-peel and hazelnut undertones. Coffee, too. It’s full-bodied with chewy tannins and a flavorful finish.
