St Supéry – Virtu 2014 – Napa Valley

The nose is fruity and relatively aromatic. It reveals notes of apple, pear and fine touches of linden associated with touches of citrus, a small minerality and a hint of acacia. The palate is fruity, well-balanced, relatively suave, a bit fleshy and offers minerality, freshness and fat (probably due to bâtonnage). On the palate this wine expresses notes of pear, white peach and fine touches of passion fruit, quenette associated with a discreet hint of lemon, slight touches of Golden apple as well as an imperceptible hint of honey and a few (very) slight notes of toasted oak on the finish. Good length and persistence.
