St. Clement Cabernet Sauvignon Oroppas Napa Valley 2013
Earthquake? Alien invasion?
NO, silly, it’s just another planet-shaking deal, yo. We got so much love from our gobsmacking almost-70%-OFF, $8 primo rosé offer yesterday, we thought: “But the red drinkers! They need love, too!”
But not just ANY red - we love you too much for that. St. Clement Cabernet Sauvignon Oroppas, baby -- wow!! 93 POINTS --- nearly 60% OFF --- it is arguably one of our finest Napa Cabernet offers ever, don’t cha think??
ARE YOU HURRYING? Good - because you don’t have to run faster than the bear, you just need to run faster than the person next to you!! But with all seriousness --- do whatever you can -- Cabernet is a rare beast even on a good week, but THIS?? Run, run, run, no walking…good luck!
OK, to the sweet succulent, vinous goodness. Oh, wait, fun fact first: “Oroppas” is Sapporo backwards (they owned St. Clement for a time in the late 80s and introduced this now-famous “Bordeaux blend” in 1991). In any case, it was a huge hit and has been coming back into cool-kid status the last few vintages. To have it at a price like this (we mentioned 93 points right??) is simply ….RAD!! It POPS with blackberry jam, ripe, dark plums, and something like this awesome clafoutis my wife makes (think baked ripe fruit in custard-y cake). It’s DARK and concentrated, beefy, even, with notes of Kahlua and Asian spices -- rich and mouthcoating. So terrifically off the hook for a wine originally priced at $70!! While it lasts…!!
