Smooth and complex, with 78% Cab Sauvignon contributing the firm tannic backbone that gives this such excellent structure. The other four Bordeaux varieties are here as well. The flavors are so interesting: black cherries, blackberry jam, plum sauce,... Wine Enthusiast. A Cabernet Sauvignon wine from California in USA. 2003 St Jean, Chateau Cinq Cepages 750ml

Winemaker's Notes:

Chateau St. Jean's Reserve wines are crafted by selecting the vineyard lots from throughout Sonoma County that offer the most generous fruit expression and the ability to age. The selections of Cabernet Sauvignon vineyards span from Sonoma Valley to Alexander Valley in order to craft a wine that expresses a full range of fruit flavors. The backbone of this wine comes from the Alexander Valley. The Cabernet Sauvignon sourcing from this wine comes from two appellations - the Alexander Valley and Knights Valley. The Cabernet Franc is from our Estate Vineyard in Sonoma Valley. Merlot is also sourced from our Estate Vineyard as well as from the Cornerstone Vineyard in the Russian River Valley while the Malbec comes from the warmer Alexander Valley.This Reserve wine consists of Cabernet Sauvignon (82%) blended with Cabernet Franc (7%), Merlot (7%) and Malbec (4%). Individual lots of each varietal were aged separately for three years in small, 100% French oak barrels (100% new) from select coopers. The blend was then assembled, by tasting and selecting the most outstanding lots, and aged in barrels for one year. The wine spent an additional three years in the bottle before release.Fragrant aromas of sweet boysenberries, violets and dark chocolate leap from the glass of this rich and concentrated Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon. A plush entry leads to ripe dark fruit, dusty cocoa and mint notes that wrap around the well-structured tannins and linger throughout a juicy finish.Wine Advocate | Robert M. Parker, Jr. | December 2007The 2003 Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve is a young, still primary effort boasting a deep ruby/purple color along with a sweet perfume of creme de cassis, cedar, bay leaf, and loamy soil. Full-bodied and fleshy, it is ideal for drinking over the next 10-15 years.
