St. Supéry Dollarhide Estate Cabernet Sauvignon 2018 (92 JD)
“Lots of chocolatey dark fruits, tobacco, graphite, scorched earth, and espresso notes emerge from the 2018 Cabernet Sauvignon Dollarhide Estate Vineyard, which is medium to full-bodied and has a dense, concentrated, foursquare texture, building tannins, and outstanding length.” – January 2021
St. Supéry Dollarhide Estate Cabernet Sauvignon 2018
Blending Cabernet Sauvignon from across their 500 acres under vine, the Dollarhide Estate Cabernet Sauvignon is the truest expression of this unique place. This elevated site in the Vaca Mountains creates a powerful and lifted character, and the team at St Supéry painstakingly ferments each parcel to eventually blend a consistently styled wine each year.
Established in the early 1980s, St. Supéry combines Bordelais winemaking tradition with Napa Valley terroir to produce the highest quality estate wines possible. Famed for their acquisition of the Dollarhide Vineyard in northeastern Rutherford, the winery is one of only a handful that can boast 100% estate owned fruit. This, plus their strict adherence to sustainable agriculture and winemaking, have established St. Supéry as a leader of Napa Valley, with consistently great vintages to their name and a bright future to look forward to.
