Sweet and frankly oaky on the nose with loads of coffee, carob and chocolate over lightly minty, herb-tinged black fruits. Smooth and balanced at first then turning creamy with vanilla and butterscotch flavors accenting the spicy black fruit. The palate is pretty much dominated by wood tannin with some plummy fruit breaking through but this is a beaver’s dream today. The finish is spicy and somewhat hot with licorice accents, short, and dominated by sweet, toasty wood. Really tough-going today. 83pts

A deep red/purple color. Aromas of dark fruits and spice. Taste has a bit of wood but is mostly of the dark fruit and herbal earthiness. Finish is short, but quite smooth. A nice, smooth drinking cab overall.

Sadly, just not as good I'd remembered it (last vintage I'd had was 2003).

Excellent wine in this price range. The tannins are soft and the oak is very subtle. In the same price range is the Rodney Strong 2006 Cab, and while the Rodney Strong has a better oak taste, this wine has a equal or superior fruitiness. Both are great examples of 2006 Sonoma Cabs, and both will be sure to please any guests you might serve. I will definitely buy more of this excellent cab.

Oak, vanilla, long finish, something vegetal maybe asparagus. Looong finish. Give this one two hours or more to open.

The bouquet begins with fruity aromas of dried cherries, blueberries and cassis and is followed by spicy aromatic notes of sage and sassafras.

Cinq Cepages is the flagship wine of Chateau St. Jean. Each year, Winemaker Margo Van Staaveren selects fruit from the finest Bordeaux variety vineyards to craft a wine that showcases the best of Sonoma County.

A reasonably good value is the Cabernet Sauvignon Sonoma, which reveals aromas and flavors of cedar, roasted herbs, black cherries, and spice. Medium-bodied with deep fruit, it is meant to be consumed over the next 4-5 years.

Creamy, with currant, cigar box, green olive, herb and tobacco aromas, this is an elegant, supple, rich and complex wine with fine, integrated tannins. Finishes with a wonderful lift. Drink now through 2007.

Scents of new oak and new leather are woven together with ripe currant, plum, black cherry and touches of anise, cedar and wild berry. Well-made if coming up shy of extra facets. Drink now through 2007.

The 2001 Cabernet Sauvignon exhibits aromas of sassafras, charcoal, black currants, and weedy tobacco in a medium to full-bodied, rich, fleshy style. It possesses loads of fruit, good body, and nicely integrated wood as well as tannin in the long finish. This excellent Cabernet may merit an outstanding score in a year or two.

Winemaker's Notes:

Cinq Cépages is the flagship wine of Chateau St. Jean. Each year, Winemaker Margo Van Staaveren selects fruit from the finest Bordeaux variety vineyards to craft a wine that showcases the best of Sonoma County. The primary grape sources for the 2006 vintage are Alexander Valley, Knights Valley and Sonoma Valley. The Alexander Valley grapes highlight bright berry with back notes of dried herbs, while the Sonoma Valley fruit is from our home vineyard – the St. Jean Estate Vineyard – and brings black and dense mountain fruit to the blend. The Knights Valley fruit adds boysenberry flavors and elegant tannins.

Tasting Notes:

Inviting aromas of blackberry, black tea and hints of leather begin the nose of this Sonoma County Cabernet Sauvignon. The wine is concentrated and structured with a ripe fruit core of dark berry fruit. The palate is round and full and leads to a lingering finish.
