Château St. Jean Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve 1994

External Review by JJ Buckley Fine Wines:

This has lots of complex flavors, a firm structure and layers of ripe plum, black cherry, currant and spice, with spicy oak, anise and earthy mineral nuances. Best from 2001 through 2006. 500 cases made. (JL) Wine Spectator. A Cabernet Sauvignon wine from California in USA. 1994 Chateau St Jean Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve 750ml

  Chatea St. Jean’s life started in 1920, when it was built as a summer home for Ernest and Maude Goff. It is located in Sugarloaf Ridge in the Sonoma Valley near the legendary Kenwood, California. While the 250 acres of land were originally planted with white grapes, Prohibition encouraged the planting of prunes and walnuts instead. When Chateau St. Jean was founded in 1973, the chateau was restored and opened to the public in honor of the Goff family. As the company says, “only the finest” from their wines, and they delivered on that promise in quick time. In 1999, Chateau St. Jean’s 1996 Cinq Cépages Cabernet Sauvignon won “Wine of the Year,” making the chateau the first Sonoma winery to receive this award. Chateau St. Jean was one of the pioneers in vineyard designation, stressing the importance of a grape’s origin. They didn’t just talk the talk - they took grapes from successful vineyards and made individually labeled Chardonnays, Pinot Noir, and Fumé Blanc. With the hard work and dedication of Margo Van Staaveren, the winemaker for Chateau St. Jean, the winery is able to make high quality wines with a persistent signature flavor profile across different vintages.
