Editorial Reviews for Chateau St Jean Cabernet Alexander Valley
Smoky with a bit of pickle barrel on the nose and lots of dried herbs with just a base note of red fruit. Pretty fruity on entry and with just a hint of RS adding emphasis to the sprightly red berry fruit. The tannins here are a touch hard just the fruit works well on the modest finish which shows nice refreshing acids and some strawberry tones that linger on the palate. This is round, juicy and a little rustic but kind of fun to drink. 86pts
Fresh and fruit driven on the nose if not fruity with red currant and wild herb notes supported by vanilla, dill and coconut oak. Rather fresh on entry, this layers on black cherry and blackberry fruit over well-measured oak that adds some nuanced savory notes without being too assertive. The tannins are a bit dry, which keeps this firm and fresh right through the firm finish where the wood becomes more obvious, but the black cherry fruit with hints of dried minty herbs never looses the upper hand. A fine little Cab for the money. 87pts
Sweet and frankly oaky on the nose with loads of coffee, carob and chocolate over lightly minty, herb-tinged black fruits. Smooth and balanced at first then turning creamy with vanilla and butterscotch flavors accenting the spicy black fruit. The palate is pretty much dominated by wood tannin with some plummy fruit breaking through but this is a beaver’s dream today. The finish is spicy and somewhat hot with licorice accents, short, and dominated by sweet, toasty wood. Really tough-going today. 83pts
Full bodied and aromatic. Black current on the nose. Hints of mocha and blackberry balanced with background full of tannins and slight oak. Really decent cab for the money.
Very nice, middle of the road Cab from Cali for a great price. Dark ruby red. Muted aromas but opens with times. Smells of red berry and faint oak. Medium bodied and fruit forward. Well balanced acidity with hints of round tannins with touches of dark cherry. Medium finish. Well done.
Smooth and delicious with anything
very nice, pleasant & smooth, rich, fruity flavors.
nicely layered dark fruit filled with blackberries, black currants, some cocoa. lovely acidity and structure, enjoyable characteristics on its own or with food.
Interesting line to the Kenwood Vineyard family. Medium to heavy mouth feel. Strong tastes of blackberry, currant, and mocha/coffee tastes with a wonderful oak background amidst well-balanced acidity. Ready to drink now.
A deep red/purple color. Aromas of dark fruits and spice. Taste has a bit of wood but is mostly of the dark fruit and herbal earthiness. Finish is short, but quite smooth. A nice, smooth drinking cab overall.
External Reviews for Chateau St Jean Cabernet Alexander Valley
A reasonably good value is the Cabernet Sauvignon Sonoma, which reveals aromas and flavors of cedar, roasted herbs, black cherries, and spice. Medium-bodied with deep fruit, it is meant to be consumed over the next 4-5 years.
Dark and lush, with just a hint of oak, and a pleasant round finish. A trully excellent value in Cabernet.
Chateau St. Jean, with its gracious style, elegant architecture and inviting gardens and tasting rooms, is the quintessential Sonoma winery.
Kenwood Vineyard's Sonoma County Cabernet Sauvignon is made predominantly of fruit sourced from vineyards located in the Sonoma, Dry Creek and Alexander Valleys. Each vineyard lot is kept separate throughout fermentation and aging to preserve the unique flavors of the individual vineyards that create this consistent, award-winning wine. The growing season of 2005 had a bountiful crop and near-perfect ripening conditions that allowed the fruit to reach its optimum flavor and maturity. After fermenting the grapes in stainless steel tanks, the wine was aged in French and American oak barrels for 23 months. Before bottling, Merlot and Cabernet Franc were added to the final blend. The result is a rich, complex, and fruity wine that has flavor reminiscent of black current jam and sweet pipe tobacco. Enjoyable now, the wine in this bottle will continue to improve with age.
Complex aromas of boysenberry, fig, allspice, vanilla and anise are complemented by well-structured tannins and a long finish. - WineryComposition: 87% Cabernet Sauvignon10% Merlot3% SyrahAppellation: Sonoma CountyAging: 22 months in French, Eastern European and American oak barrelsAcid: 6.4pH: 3.57Alcohol: 13.5%
