St Clement 2006 Oroppas,Cabernet Sauvignon, a WBC 09 highlight!

The Wine Bloggers Conference of 2009 is where I had the opportunity to sample the 2006 Oroppas and prior to this I had only read of and heard about their reputation for making outstanding wine, this effort was no different. St Clement was part of the Grand Tasting line up held at Quintessa Winery a beautiful property encompassing some 170 acres of vineyard on Silverado Trail in St. Helena, Ca. The line-up of Napa Valley Vintners read like some cork-dorks "Who's Who" list of top Napa Valley Wine makers. It's what I would call First Class event and I was so appreciative of this opportunity. Tables were set up along the many rows of fermentation tanks in what seemed like a Taj Mahal size building, truly impressive. You had to see it and experience it to appreciate the grandeur of this event. Now maybe a little wine blogger like myself is too easily impressed, but I did feel a bit like hey, "I've arrived"!
