Wine Enthusiast
Best of Year 2023


The latest reviews from Wine Enthusiast’s Best of Year 2023 magazine issue.


94 points & Editors’ Choice – 2019 St. Supéry Napa Valley Estate Cabernet Sauvignon
Luscious and ripe black fruits ride an effortless texture in this seamless and well-balanced wine. Minutely grained tannins weave through dark plums, spearmint, cocoa and black cherries. While enticing and drinkable, the wine should have a long, more complex life ahead. Best from 2027–2040. Editors’ Choice. —J.G.

94 points – 2018 St. Supéry Napa Valley Estate Élu
Inviting chocolate, cinnamon and cedar fill the aroma of this full-bodied and moderately tannic wine before a generous dose of black cherries, mint and dark chocolate coat the palate. The wine is so tempting now for its complexity and richness. Best from 2025–2035. —J.G.

95 points – 2019 St. Supéry Dollarhide Estate Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon
Relaxed in texture and impressively rich in fruit flavors, this wine opens with a mélange of mint, crushed cherries and raspberries. It then floods the palate with blackberries and blueberries interlaced with cedar, mint and cocoa accents. The wine has improved greatly over past vintages. It is rich enough to enjoy soon but concentrated enough for considerable aging. Best from 2027–2037. —J.G.

93 points – 2022 St. Supéry Napa Valley Estate Virtú
A blend of Sémillon and Sauvignon Blanc as is common in Bordeaux, this medium-bodied and mouthcoating wine is serious and substantive. Citrus, toast, pear and a touch of honey blend nicely on the palate, where a rich texture carries them through a lingering finish. —J.G
