External Reviews for Château St. Jean Cinq Cepages Proprietary Blend
A lovely Cab, elegant and harmonious. Strikes an even balance between cherry and blackberry flavors, smoky oak, sweet herbs, cocoa and spice. The tannins are beautifully ripe and soft. Of all the qualities, balance is foremost.
Beautifully crafted, dark, rich and layered, with blackberry, cherry, plum and wild berry fruit that zooms across the palate, holding a tight focus and finishing with a long, complex aftertaste. the tannins firm up nicely on the finish,. Drink now through 2011. Tasted twice, with consistent notes.
... Wine Enthusiast. A Cabernet Sauvignon wine from California in USA. 1998 St Jean, Chateau Cinq Cepages 750ml
Excellent balance, with supple, complex currant, plum, herb, dill and cedar notes that are focused and ripe. Loses a little intensity on the finish. Mild tannins make it appealing now. Drink now through 2006.
A lean blend emphasizing cabernet in its cassis flavors, this wine ends in soft tannins, powdery as black chalk dust. Still primary, with blunt grape flavor, this could prove more interesting with several years of age.
The winersquo;s cherry aromas are almost stewy, thanks to the toast and eucalyptus notes that envelop them; expect more cherry, soy and some herbal complexity in the mouth. Medium-weight; closes with tart red fruit and full-on tannin.
The 2001 Cinq Cepages (76% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% Merlot, 8% Cabernet Franc, 4% Malbec and 2% Petit Verdot) is a silky, fully mature, fruity, seductive, round wine offering up notes of earth, bay leaf, sweet currants and plums along with sweet tannins. It should offer enjoyment for another 5ndash;6 years.
