This red Bordeaux varietal blend has deep, vibrant purple hues. A complex nose of blackberry and cassis laced with milk chocolate, mocha and molasses intertwine with cedar and toasted vanillin notes of cellar maturation. Flavors of blackberry, black cherry and bright ripe currant couple with vanillin and maple and are framed by a fine tannin structure.
This is an elegant, graceful red wine with center, structure and charm.
"The 2010 Proprietary Red Elu is a blend of 76% Cabernet Sauvignon, 17% Merlot and the rest tiny dollops of Petit Verdot, Malbec and Cabernet Franc. This elegant red wine offers blueberry, blackberry and cassis fruit intertwined with vanillin and spice box characteristics. Fruity, richly textured and nicely layered, this 2010 builds incrementally, exhibiting stunning ripeness, purity and depth. It is another brilliant achievement in this line-up of great wines, the likes of which I have never before seen from St. Supery.
Range: 95+ Points"
