Tasting Notes

93+ points: "The 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon Star Vineyard is one of the firmer, more tannic in the St. Clement range. Dark purplish fruit, smoke, spices, violets and graphite inform a savory, highly expressive Cabernet Sauvignon loaded with personality. The virile, imposing tannins need time to open up, but there is little doubt the 2012 is striking in its beauty. I imagine the 2012 will age effortlessly for another two decades or so." -Antonio Galloni, December 2014.
