Chateau St. Jean Cabernet Sauvignon Sonoma County Cinq Cepages 2009
This Cinq Cepages is a complex and layered wine. Its deep garnet color meets vibrant aromas of blackberry, black plum, clove spice and rich mocha notes in the glass. Secondary aromas of raspberry and cherry mingle with notes of violet and pomegranate. The aromas lead to a juicy palate with flavors of blueberry and blackberry. Nuanced notes of roasted coffee, black tea and adistinct dark chocolate component add to the complexity. The full-bodied wine has smooth, silky tannins that offer solid structure but do not overwhelm. This 20th Anniversary vintage wine is well-balanced and delicious tasting now but powerful enough to reward with cellaring.<br/><br/>77% Cabernet Sauvignon, 11% Merlot, 8% Cabernet Franc, 2% Malbec, 1% Petit Verdot
Editorial Reviews for Chateau St. Jean Cabernet Sauvignon Sonoma County 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
Clear and clean aromas of green apple, lemon and sugar. Smooth and flavorful with a complex mix of lemon candy, cream, apple.
Lots of cream and pears in the nose, and a fresh vegetative smell. Light minerally body with some mild buttery notes. Slightly tart finish.
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.
Enjoy the aroma of apples with a buttery taste. Goes great with our Dominos thin crust and buffalo wings ; )
Good wine subtile and gound all round some black fruit in it

Dense, deep aromas of grilled meat and berry fruits lead to a full and concentrated palate with structure and fierce tannins. Tastes of classic blackberry and plum, with light herbal shadings. Turns more spicy and interesting on the finish.
The dense purple 2009 Milcampos Vintilde;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 2ndash;3 years. Drink this lengthy effort from 2013 to 2021.

Ruby-red. Musky cherry and dark berry aromas are complemented by notes of cracked pepper and herbs. Bitter cherry and sassafras on the palate, with a sweet note of cola on the back end. Finishes with a slightly clenched quality and an echo of bitter cherry. Give this some air.

Kräftiges Grantatrot, würzige Fruchtaromatik von Zwetschgen, dezente Vanillenoten, gehaltvolle Frucht im Gaumen nach Beeren mit schöner Würzigkeit und leichten Holznoten, gute Struktur und langer Abgang.
A landmark wine for Tuscany the 2009 I Sodi di S. Niccolo (85-15 Sangioveto and Malvasia Nera) is a deeply sophisticated wine that puts its pedigree on full display both on the bouquet and in the mouth. The quality of the fruit is outstanding and you can distinguish each aromatic descriptor with total clarity
