Winemaker's Notes:

Perfume, acacia flowers and exotic spices leap from the nose of this classic Gewürztraminer. A rich, medium - bodied entry fills the palate with flavors of jasmine, orange zest and melon and lead into a surprisingly clean and refreshing long citrus finish. -Margo van Staaveren, Winemaker

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."
