Chateau St. Jean Cinq Cépages 2013
|Region||California, Sonoma County|
|Brand||Chateau St. Jean|
Wine AdvocateDense ruby/purple with a restrained but promising bouquet of cassis,tobacco leaf,subtle oak,this full-bodied wine is very youthful,dense,and extremely promising. Always one the winery's classics this should be at its best between 2018 and 2035.
Wine SpectatorA little ragged around the edges, with well-centered dark berry, fresh earth, dried herb and cedary oak notes, this Bordeaux-inspired effort ends with firming tannins and anise notes. This will be best served by short-term cellaring. Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Malbec and Petit Verdot. Best from 2020 through 2030. 3,138 cases made.
