Chateau St Jean Cinq Cepages 2006

Winemaker's Notes:

2006 vintage red Wine by Chateau St. Jean from California, USA

Chateau St. Jean Winery & Vineyards:
  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.

  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.

I must admit that I am trying this wine while on malbec kick. That said I like this wine. Dark fruit, coco and earthiness on the nose. Plum, minty and earthiness, smooth tannins and a long finish. Yummy wine, great with a skirt steak.

Dense purple core with a medium ruby rim. Bordeaux-like aromas display currant, cherry, anise, cedar and soil. On the palate, this is full bodied with tannins that build from start to finish in the mouth. Black currant flavors are showcases with a hi... Alex Lallos.

The 2006 I Sodi di San Niccolo is fabulous. Beautifully delineated aromatics meld into a breathtaking array of dark fruit, crushed rocks, smoke, tar, minerals and flowers in this totally thrilling Tuscan red. The fruit completely saturates the palate... Robert Parker's Wine Advocate. A Proprietary Blend wine from Tuscany in Italy. 2006 Castellare I Sodi di San Niccolo Vino da Tavola 750ml

Showing the usual balance and harmony of this bottling, which is made from the five Bordeaux varieties, the '06 nonetheless lacks a bit of the richness of other vintages. It's beautifully clean and dry, with sound currant, blackberry, herb tea and ce... Wine Enthusiast. A Cabernet Sauvignon wine from California in USA. 2006 St Jean, Chateau Cinq Cepages 750ml

The 2006 Cabernet Sauvignon Cinq Cepages (in this vintage, truly a Cabernet Sauvignon rather than a proprietary red as it is a blend of 83% Cabernet Sauvignon and the rest Merlot, Malbec, Cabernet Franc, and Petit Verdot) possesses soft, seductive no...

Tasting Notes:

Juicy and mouth-filling, this wine bursts with bright raspberries, blueberries, blackberries and café au lait. Big, chewy tannins surround a complex core of black fruit and hints of tasty oak that last throughout a long finish.
