St. Supéry Merlot Awarded Best in Show

New Orleans Wine & Food Experience International Wine Competition
June 2023


Best In Show

Selected by a panel of judges out of 210 wine entries, the 2018 St. Supéry Rutherford Estate Vineyard Merlot has been awarded Best in Show during the 2023 NOWFE Wine Competition. The wine was aged for 19 months with sixty-five percent of the berries used in this blend were fermented then aged in French Oak barrels for added layers of complexity. The result is a wine with aromas of black plum and black cherry combine with graphite, milk chocolate, and black pepper with a subtle thread of vanilla from the toasted oak. This is a generous merlot with nice freshness on the palate show casing juicy blackberry and toasted oak. There is a cocoa powder texture with smooth tannins and a long finish.

Attendees of the New Orleans Wine Festival will have the opportunity to taste the Best in Show winner during the June 8th Vinola event. Information and tickets HERE.
