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.

Enticing aromas of dark berries and vanilla waft from the glass of this inky garnet wine. Elegant and smooth, the rich palate is loaded with cassis, black cherry and spice.

As Napa Cabernets go, Chateau St. Jean's effort is both very high quality and a great value. Dark red fruits dominate the palate and are rounded out by hints of vanilla and coffee bean. Full bodied and well-balanced, the tannins are balanced at the end by a nice oaky, earthy finish.

Rich, ripe and juicy, with excellent black fruits and subtle tobacco and coffee notes. Soft and opulent for easy drinking, yet concentrated and complex without breaking the bank! A consistently great value in California Cabernet.

It may have a statewide appellation, but this wine showcases the winery's skill in crafting complex Cabs at all price levels. With blackberry, cassis, coffee and oak flavors and long, dry, finish, it's a fine, very drinkable wine.

Chateau St. Jean is well known for it's single vineyard wines. Located in the heart of Sonoma, Chateau St. Jean has made wine for over 30 years and was the first Sonoma Winery to be awarded winery of the year by Wine Spectator, a high honor indeed.

Dense and concentrated, with rich, earthy currant and blackberry fruit that's a little muddled and lacking a sharp focus. Still, it speaks clearly of Cabernet with its concentration and depth. New California appellation Cabernet from St. Jean. Drink now through 2008.

Winemaker's Notes:

Sonoma County is a diverse growing region with a complex terrain of small valleys, benchlands and hillsides. A coastal appellation, it is favored with fog in the morning and sunny afternoons cooled by maritime breezes. From the cool Carneros area in the south to the more moderate Russian River and Alexander Valleys further north, a wide variety of grapes can enjoy the optimum climate to achieve rich varietal flavor.

Tasting Notes:

Bright aromas of cassis, blueberry and fig are followed by savory notes of toast, bay leaf and coffee. Ripe tannins and firm acidity provide structure and length to this ripe, satisfying wine.
