Top 6 High-Scoring Red Wines

The best of Sonoma Cabernet


« Prev Next » 6 of 8
2006 Chateau St. Jean Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon $90

Deeply smoky on the nose with nice framing notes of black olive and toasty oak which help to focus the black currant fruit. Smooth, rich and packed with fruit in the mouth. This is slightly chewy with a polished feel. The red and black fruits pop up above the tannins on the mid-palate, though the tannins are still quite firm and obvious. Lot’s of flannelly fruit lends an impression of soft opulence even today, but the purity of the fruit is revealed on the long, slightly drying finish. The fruit and tannins here are set for a marathon. Will be interesting to watch this evolve over the next 20 years.  92pts
