2007 St Clement Oroppas Napa Valley 1.5L
Rich and concentrated, this wine opens with aromas of black plum, vanilla, brown sugar and cinnamon. On the palate, flavors of black currant, roasted coffee and bittersweet chocolate are wrapped in velvety tannins. Notes of dark chocolate and raspberry jam lead to a long finish. Cabernet Franc and Petite Verdot were blended in to enhance the structure and mid-palate weight. Each lot was aged separately in 70 percent new French oak for nineteen months, and blended together before bottling.
