Winemaker's Notes

"One of the top high quality, value-priced Cabernets in the market is Chateau St. Jean's 2002 Cabernet Sauvignon. An outstanding, dark ruby/purple-tinged effort, it offers a rich, sumptuous bouquet of chocolate, smoke, black cherries, currants, and subtle herbs. Full-bodied, lush, and opulent, this tasty, heady 2002 can be enjoyed over the next decade."
- Wine Advocate

Black cherries, chocolate, ripe plums, violets and sweet vanilla oak notes jump from the nose of this Cabernet. On the palate, layers of ripe blackberries, roasty tobacco, cedar, mint and spice surround richly textured supple tannins that lead into a coffee and smoky oak finish.

This wine consists of Cabernet Sauvignon blended with Merlot (3%) and Cabernet Franc (2%). Each component was aged separately for 18 months in French and American oak before blending. Once the barrel selection was made, the wine was assembled and bottled.

The atmosphere of Sonoma is decidedly laid back and down home country style. But in wines, they are keeping up with the...

Perhaps that title is due to its ability to grow worldwide in a number of climates, or to the fact that it produces wine with such character yet such diversity. Either way, this grape is responsible, as a whole or a partner, for some of the greatest wines in the world. In Bordeaux,...
