St. Clement Vineyards – Brief Article

Philip E. Hiaring

St. Clement Vineyards, 1998 Merlot, is $26 suggested retail. It was far more pleasurable than an Argentine Merlot tasted the same day, May 3. The flavor is layered, just as a fisherman casting a fly to steelhead in February is layered. With clothing. The blend is 81% Merlor, 11% Cabernet Sauvignon and 8% Cabernet franc. That’s a winning blend, at least for this vintage from various Napa Valley vineyards.
