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 ** SOLD OUT **

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.


Winemaker's Notes:

Plump, ripe and juicy, the Orropas opens with signature aromas of black currant and black cherry, along with pretty floral and cinnamon notes that give intensity to the bouquet. Supple flavors of plum, berry jam, dark chocolate, cocoa powder and pure vanilla extract arrive on a palate that is richly textured. With tannins that are smooth and velvety, the Orropas - like its predecessors -- can be fully enjoyed without extensive aging. 87% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% Merlot, 2% Petite Verdot, 1% Cabernet Franc
