2001 Chateau St Jean Cabernet Sauvignon Cinq Cépages Sonoma County

2001 Chateau St Jean Cabernet Sauvignon Cinq Cépages Sonoma County

A perfect opportunity to try a legendary Chateau St Jean library wine.  Signature mocha and black cherry aromas showcase our flagship Cabernet Sauvignon blend. Deep, dense and highly extracted, this wine begins with rich black flavors of blackberries, roasted coffee beans and cocoa. Complex layers of bittersweet chocolate, hibiscus and lavender surround big chewy tannins in the mid-palate. Flavors of sweet oak and spice combined with tobacco and blueberries linger throughout a lengthy finish.  Drink now through 2020.

About This Wine

The Vineyards
Fruit for this Cabernet Sauvignon was selected from the finest Bordeaux variety vineyards in Sonoma County: 59% from Alexander Valley, 29% from Sonoma Valley, 7% from Knights Valley, 3% from Dry Creek Valley and 2% from Russian River Valley to assemble a wine that showcases Sonoma County. 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 a firm mouthfeel and pronounced tannins and the Dry Creek Valley grapes tend toward dark, dense black cherry and berry fruit flavors with a rich mouthfeel. The Russian River Valley brings exotic aromas and lush textures to complete the blend.

Winemaking
Cinq Cépages (“Five Varieties”) is a Bordeaux-style blend consisting of Cabernet Sauvignon (76%), Merlot (10%), Cabernet Franc (8%), Malbec (4%), and Petit Verdot (2%). Each component is aged separately for two years in small French oak barrels before blending. Once the wine is assembled, it spends six months in the bottle before release.
