Winemaker's Notes

The 1996 St. Clement Cabernet Sauvignon is a beautifully extracted wine, with good intensity of fruit and color due to the use of fully ripened grapes. The final blend includes about 5% Cabernet Franc. From a standpoint of density, this is one of the richest vintages of the 90s. There is a sweet, black pepper and chocolatey character to this wine with a great sense of richness and depth. As soft as the tannins are and as rich and dense as the body is, it is still lively and doesnt just sit on your palate. The 1996 vintage Cabernet Sauvignon has the structure to hold up for 8-10 years.
