Big Black fruit up front on the nose! Wow! Nice structure and a great end palate where it all comes together for this wine! The flagship for St Clement does not dissappoint! Nice wine! Enjoy! Cheers!

Tight and Bordeaux-like in its structure and midpalate austerity, offering loamy earth, currant and dark berry flavors shaded by anise and cedar details. Needs time. Best from 2014 through 2025. 2,131 cases made. -JL The estate's 2010 Cabernet Sauvignon Oroppas wraps around the palate with lovely fleshiness. Layers of radiant fruit caress the palate in this rich, textured wine. Today the fruit is vibrant, supple and totally beautiful. The Oroppas is a pretty wine, but it falls short of being truly exciting. The 2010 is 77% Cabernet Sauvignon, 18% Merlot, 3% Cabernet Franc and 2% Petit Verdot. Anticipated maturity: 2015-2025.

The 2008 Oroppas Proprietary Red is a cross-Napa Valley blend of 87% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% Merlot and the rest tiny dollops of Petit Verdot and Cabernet Franc, largely from hillside vineyards on Diamond Mountain, Howell Mountain, Mt. Veeder and valley floor sites in Rutherford and St. Helena. It exhibits a deep plum/purple color along with sweet aromas of espresso roast, black cherries, black currants, licorice and herbs. Medium to full-bodied with supple tannins and a round, generous personality, it should drink well for a decade or more. Complex layers of ripe currant, loamy earth, mocha, cedar and tobacco are medium- to full-bodied, ending with a graphite note and a minerally, rustic edge. Best from 2012 through 2021. 3,000 cases made. -JL

The first vintage of Oroppas was made in 1991, and over the years, it has become a style icon for St. Clement a rich, opulent Bordeaux-style blend that emphasizes concentration, depth and velvety tannins.

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.
