St. Clement 1999 Cabernet Sauvignon (Napa Valley)

What's odd about this wine is how tough and tannic it is for the vintage, when so many wineries made supple, approachable wines. Possibly the grapes were picked too early, in fear of rain. Framed in considerable oak, with a chewy core of blackberries, it's a cellar candidate. Give it a good seven years to soften and sweeten.
