Bold berry and plum flavors combined with mellow spices make this wine easy to accept, enjoy and understand. The tannins and texture are finely balanced. 15 minutes into the wine and blackberry becomes very apparent and exciting. Pricing is very reasonable with this all around winner.
External Reviews for Chateau St. Jean Merlot
Aromas of sweet black cherry, black plum and toasted almonds burst from the glass of this Merlot. These bright fruit characters carry over onto the palate and mingle with notes of blackberry, dark chocolate and clove. A rich and full mid-palate, with polished tannins, leads to a lush finish with cassis on the close.
