Chateau St. Jean Pinot Noir Sonoma Valley Durell Vineyard 2002

Winemaker's Notes:

A fine Bordeaux Blend available direct only from the winery. This top seller's name is our address- a fun fact about a fun and fabulous wine. Wine Notes: Rich and highly extracted, the nose is filled with lovely ripe blackberry, plums buleberry and white chocolate aromas. In the mouth, this wine is very polished with silky tannins and very satisfying black fruit and perfumy flavors. A blend of Cabernet Franc (40%), Petit Verdot (25%), Merlot (21%) and Malbec (14%).

  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.
