    The 2011 vintage of the St. Clement Oroppas is a fantastic wine that makes me have a little hope for some of the 2011 Napa Cabernet. The wine is a blend of Diamond Mountain, Howell Mountain, Mount Veeder, Rutherford and Spring Mountain fruit. They achieved some lovely extraction for such a cool vintage. Nice flavors of mocha, plum, cedar and vanilla harmonize well with the fruit and make a delicious wine for the next 5 years.

    This wine rocks! Wow, this is the kind of California wine I want to drink, oozing with a distinctive feel of terroir as well as rich fruit and spicy oak accents. St Clement makes 3 single-vineyard offerings that sell from $60-$100 annually but in the challenging 2011 vintage they declassified the three vineyards Paras, Armstrong and Star and blended them into the Oroppas. Always a strong offering this made the 2011 St. Clement Oroppas outstanding, easily the best I have ever tasted. The wine has a gorgeous nose of clove, volcanic rock, red berry and mocha while the palate is a seductive blend of berry, mocha, molten rock and spice. This wine has fantastic length and complexity with a long, full finish it is a testament to what can be achieved in 2011 and one of the better 2011s from Napa Valley I have tasted.
    Top Value! Drink from 2015 to 2025
