External Reviews for Chat.St. Jean Sonoma Cabernet Sauvignon
Rating: 86/100 - As reviewed by Connoisseurs' Guide to California Wine (www.cgcw.com) in the August 2010 issue. It may be cut from lighter cloth and it makes no claims to extraordinary richness or depth, but this bright and buoyant wine offers up a nice sense of lively young fruit and hints here and there of cherries, cassis and a tart touch of berries with modest oak in quiet support. It ends with just enough tannic grip and has the energy to improve for at least a couple of years.Connoisseurs' Guide to California Wine aging recommendation: Drinkable now. Further bottle aging can improve this wine.

Fruit aromas of red currant, raspberry and plum are backed by more aromatic notes of vanilla, pipe tobacco, and bay leaf. Broad tannins provide excellent mouthfeel and a long finish. - Winery ** SOLD OUT **
From a reliable producer, an adequate Cab and a relative success for the vintage. Oak contribute flashy spice, vanilla and sweet tannins, and it's surprisingly ripe and fruity given the 43,000 case production. This is a nice, dry wine that satisfies and offers some complexity.
A reasonably priced California Cab! Dark fruit - blackberry, black cherry, and prunes - is structured by defined tannins and tobacco notes. Perfect with grilled steak.
Complex aromas of plum and dried cherries with a hint of hazelnut and vanilla. Well strucured with a nice lingering finish. Will drink well for the next 10 years.
This Cab shows restraint that translates into elegance, and it's a wine that's designed to be supportive of the main star at the table, food. Balanced and dry, it shows earthy flavors of blackberries and plums.
The 2007 began with a dry spring that gave way to a mild summer. Weather was excellent throughout the growing season; however the crop load was somewhat small. Beginning in late September each vineyard was carefully picked as it reached its optimum maturity. After fermentation in stainless steel tanks, the wine was aged in French and American oak barrels for 24 months. Before bottling, the classic Bordeaux varieties of Merlot, Petit Verdot and Malbec were added to the final blend to give the wine balance and complexity. This produced a rich and multifaceted wine that is enjoyable now as well as for many years to come.
Kenwood Vineyards’ Yulupa Cabernet Sauvignon is produced with an emphasis on softness and drinkability. Cassis and blackberry aromas followed by complex notes of dark chocolate and olives. Medium-bodied mouthfeel with soft, rich tannins and an excellent finish.
Notes: French and American oak barrels
