Editorial Reviews for Chateau St Jean Cabernet Cinq Cepages
Nicely fruity on the nose with early notes of mulberry, black fruits and violet over some limestone notes. Rich, ripe yet transparent on the palate with lively, crisp tannins and an edge of austerity that underpins the mulberry, black raspberry and juniper/forest floor-toned palate. This finishes much more in the red fruit end of the spectrum with currant and cherry fruit lingering over a succulent, sandy soil driven base. Archetypal Chianti. 89pts
Nice strawberry fruit on the nose which is a contrast to its deep violet hue. Structured and complex, yet with a smooth mouthfeel, subtle tannins and bright acidity
Bright, tart fruit with a balanced acidity, woodsy flavors (pinecone, cedar), good weight and smoothness. Very well balanced.
Overpowering salinity/brine flavor, gets a little better after a half hour in the glass. Light body. Tangy and fruity on the palette followed by an array of interesting tart flavors. Fine tannins. The salinity kills it for me, but lots of people seem to like that.
Good wine subtile and gound all round some black fruit in it

Fans of the varietal will cheer the intense oriental spiciness that seasons the flowery, fruity flavors. Made Alsatian style, the wine is pretty dry, with a hint of honey on the finish.
The exotic, essentially dry (there is some residual sugar), light to medium-bodied, spicy 2001 Gewürztraminer is pure rose water and lychee nuts.
Both soft and juicy, with honey, pear, peach and spice notes and a dash of citrus. Drink now.
Varietally pure and true. This is a crisp, elegantly structured wine with tropical fruit flavors, honeysuckle, vanilla and masses of dusty crushed brown spices. Finishes really powerful in fruit.

The dense purple 2009 Milcampos Viandntilde;as Viejas was sourced from older vines and aged for 10 months in new American and Hungarian oak. Brooding black fruits, lavender, cinnamon, clove, soy, and pepper inform the nose of this powerful effort. It delivers greater density than the Milcampos bottling and will evolve for 2andndash;3 years. Drink this lengthy effort from 2013 to 2021.
94 points and 'Cellar Selection,' Wine Enthusiast: Another superb Cinq Cépages. A blend of all five classic Bordeaux grape varieties-, but based on Cabernet Sauvignon, it is both immediately pleasurable and intensely complex. Waves of black currants, dark chocolate, green olives, licorice and toasty oak roll across the palate, wrapped into firm, dusty tannins. Very good now but should develop further over the next 8-10 years. (May 2013)
<p>Made from a blend of Sangioveto, Canaiolo and other complementary grapes, this very dry Tuscan Chianti is brilliant ruby red with an ample bouquet of violets, iris and vanilla followed by layers of fruit on the palate.</p>
