Cut red plums, smoke, hickory from the oak, a little flint, steel, apple core, lovely sweet violet note. Bright, fairly tense. I prefer the ‘97 to this. Tight and a bit oaky today. A bit chewy, lightly, full of bitter cherry fruit, classic austere, aggressive stuff. This is charged with fruit. Ready to beat your mouth into submission, but has fine fresh, ripe fruit. There is a lingering black cherry pit note on the finale. 91pts

While the 13,000-case cuvee of 1999 Cinq Cepages (76% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% Merlot, 8% Cabernet Franc, 4% Malbec, and 2% Petit Verdot) is not as prodigious as the 1997 or 1996, it is potentially outstanding. This New World version of a high class S... Robert Parker's Wine Advocate. A Cabernet Sauvignon wine from California in USA. 1999 St Jean, Chateau Cinq Cepages 750ml
