St Supery – Rutherford Cabernet Sauvignon 2012 – Napa Valley

The nose is fine, relatively complex, relatively gourmand and offers density and a small minerality. It reveals notes of cassis and notes of blackberry associated with touches of bell pepper, spices as well as fine touches of red fruits and an imperceptible hint of espresso / coffee. The palate is fruity, well-balance, relatively gourmand, relatively fleshy and offers suavity, a good structure, a nice definition, fat as well as a beautiful fresh / mineral frame. On the palate this wine expresses notes of cassis, blackberry and fine touches of cherry, strawberry associated with discreet notes of raspberry jam, small notes of licorice as well as a discreet hint of Ceylon tea, zan and wood (discreet). Good length. There are discreet hints of toasted oak and hazelnut on the finish / persistence. (2019+)
