St. Clement Cabernet Sauvignon 2007
Cabernet Sauvignon from Napa Valley, California
Bright aromas of cherry, violet and lingering vanilla and clove introduce this classic Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon. The smoky, roasted coffee on the nose as well enhances the full bodied texture of the wine where structured tannins are interjected. Fruit flavors of cranberry and black currant are followed by the warmth of cinnamon and cocoa powder leading to a toasted oak finish. The wine was aged in 50% new French Oak and aged for 19 months.
The Wine Advocate - "A sleeper of the vintage as well as a great value is the 2007 Cabernet Sauvignon Napa. Its opaque purple color is followed by terrific aromas of blueberries, blackberries, licorice, and camphor. The wine possesses sweet tannins, a velvety, full-bodied mouthfeel, and impressive purity and length. It should evolve for 12-15+ years. "

Notable FactsWithin the Napa Valley lie smaller sub-AVAs that lend even more character specifics to the wines. Furthest south is Carneros, followed by Yountville, Oakville & Rutherford. Above those two is St.-Helena and finally, just grated an AVA, Calistoga. These areas are situated on the valley floor and are known for creating rich, smooth Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Chardonnay. There are a few mountain regions as well, nestled on the slopes overlooking the valley AVAs. Those include Howell Mountain, Stags Leap and Mount Veeder. Wines from the mountain regions are often more structured and firm, benefiting from more time in the bottle to evolve and soften.
