Winemaker's Notes:

Aromas of black fruits dominate with notable hints of plum on the nose."Rich, ripe and forward with big fruit flavors of black cherry and blackberry are backed by a slight hint of mint and subtle notes of roasted ms\eat. Lush and fleshy tannins gently surround the fruit to a satisfying finish.
My Notes:

About Chateau St. Jean:

Chateau St. Jean is a winemaking estate located at the foot of the Sugarloaf Ridge in Sonoma Valley near Kenwood, California. Founded in 1973, Chateau St. Jean has long been recognized as a leader in Vineyard Designated wines. Winemaker Steve Reeder has built a reputation for making wines of power and elegance. With over 20 years of vineyard and winemaking experience, his knowledge of Sonoma makes him a master in highlighting the best of each vineyard. Chateau St. Jean was the first Sonoma winery to be awarded the prestigious "Wine of the Year" award from Wine Spectator for its 1996 Cinq Cepages Cabernet Sauvignon, a Bordeaux-style blend of "five varieties."
