External Reviews for Château St. Jean Cinq Cepages Proprietary Blend
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.
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.
This fine wine, which is at its best now, offers polished flavors of currants, blackberries and herbs, with smoky nuances from oak. It is smooth and polished in the mouth, with a good balance of acids and tannins. Not an ager, but complex and elegant.
This 250-acre estate was founded in 1973, passed from the original owners to Japanese drinks giants Suntory in 1984, and then to Beringer Blass in 1997. Cinq Ceacute;pages comprises the five Bordeaux grape varieties: Cabernet Sauvignon (76%), Merlot (10%), Cabernet Franc (8%), Malbec (4%) and Petit Verdot (2%). Winemaker Steve Reeder uses fruit from Alexander Valley, Sonoma Valley, Knights Valley and Dry Creek Valley. The 1996 was Wine of the Year 1999.
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.
Chunky aromas of red and black fruit mixed with copious oak start it off. The next phase is a spicy clove-tinged, sweet-plum palate that is downright chewy. While itrsquo;s undeniably rich throughout, it doesnrsquo;t hit the highest marks, and therersquo;s a slight green note at the core.
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.
