St. Supery Dollarhide Estate Cabernet Sauvignon 2015
|Region||California, Napa Valley, Rutherford|
The single vineyard wines from our Rutherford Estate Vineyard have a luxurious texture and a lengthy finish of find-grained tannins attributed to the Rutherford dust soils while the oldest vines at Dollarhide estate Vineyard, now more than 30 years old, produce the full-bodied, distinctive wines upon which St. Supéry Estate's reputation was built.
Deep garnet-purple in color, the 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon Dollarhide Estate Vineyard opens with crushed black currant and red plum notes with underlying notes of tree bark, bay leaves, black olives and cracked pepper. The medium-bodied palate is finely crafted and refreshing in the mouth, with the grainy tannins complementing the youthful fruit, finishing with an herbal lift. This was tasted as a barrel sample.
