A pleasing entry from the St. Supery
winery in Napa Valley
, California. I've been unable to determine what type of grape
blend they use (though by the laws governing the labeling of varietal
s, at least 75% of the wine must be merlot grapes from Napa Valley), but I suspect there's a good amount of Cabernet Sauvingon
in the mix.
It is a delicious wine, permeated with strong (but not too strong) berry tastes. It was somewhat tannic, though in reasonable measure, with a good finish. I bought a bottle for about $17, and I plan to hold onto it for at least a year, but no more than two. I believe it would be a good complement to lighter meals featuring fruit or fresh vegetables.
