Firm and chunky, with a full complement of currant, berry and spice aromas and flavors, picking up hints of herb and toast on the long finish. Has style and power, with enough tannin to want until 1998-2000.
It has been a long time since I recommended three wines from St. Clement. The new Japanese owner, Sapporo, has gotten serious about upgrading the quality. The 1990 Cabernet Sauvignon displays a dense purple color, a ripe, vanillin-scented nose, and rich, medium to full-bodied flavors that reveal admirable glycerin and extract, as well as a sense of balance. The bouquet and flavors demonstrate that the wine has not been excessively processed or acidified. (RP)
