St. Clement Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley 1999

Winemaker's Notes:

Winemaker's Comments Rich, ruby red in color, this luscious Cabernet Sauvignon features aromatics of red cherry, boysenberry, cassis and vanilla spice on the nose, as flavors of strawberry jam, cherry cola and black licorice intertwine with clove and hints of cocoa powder on the palate. Integrated, supple tannins create the refined structure that carries this well-balanced Cabernet to a lengthy and flavorful finish. Varietal Content 77% Cabernet Sauvignon, 20% Merlot 3% Cabernet Franc

As the third decade of her life begins, Danielle Cyrot brings a broad scope of international winemaking expertise that extends well beyond her age. And as the descendant of French vignerons whose history goes back for centuries, she is also renewing an enological tradition that had been dormant for three generations. Danielle’s great-, great-grandfather was the last in a long line of ancestors who owned the Cyrot vineyard in Burgundy’s famous Côte de Beaune. He donated the land to the Hospice du Beaune after losing his son (Danielle’s great-grandfather) in World War I (fittingly, there is still a Pommard Cyrot cuvée from this property sold in the Hospice du Beaune auction every year.) Danielle’s grandfather moved to Paris, where her father was later born. They soon moved to St. Etienne where they stayed until her father was 16, after which they returned to Paris. Her father eventually moved to the U.S., and during studies at California Institute of Technology, Danielle’s parents met and settled in California. Though aware of her family’s vinous background, it didn’t occur to Danielle that she could revive that winemaking tradition until she reached college. She enrolled at the University of California, Davis, but had not decided on a major until she took an introductory winemaking class taught by popular professor Carole Meredith. Danielle was hooked almost immediately, and turned her full attention to the study of winemaking. She graduated in 1998 with a degree in Enology and Viticulture. While at Davis, Danielle worked the harvest at several wineries in Napa Valley. After graduation, she was determined to experience winemaking in other wine regions, and traveled to Alsace and South Australia to hone her skills. Danielle returned to Napa from her travels abroad in 1999 and joined the team at Stags’ Leap Winery as an enologist. In 2003, Danielle was promoted to assistant winemaker at Stags’ Leap. Danielle is not one to mark time idly. While at Stags’ Leap, she also began collaborating with another winemaker on a sideline project, TwoTone Farm. She was eager to appeal to younger wine drinkers like her, so the brand was a cutting-edge creation: screw-caps, trendy fonts and reasonable pricing. It was an immediate hit. Danielle now turns her full attention to St. Clement. With a range of vineyards to work with, she can utilize her creativity to its fullest in crafting rich, unique wines. For Danielle, it’s a family tradition. Read less
