This is the finest Cabernet Sauvignon crafted at Chateau St. Jean, period. Since this wine is aged in oak for three years before receiving an additional year of bottle age, its release always comes with such joyous anticipation from staff and customers alike. The nose of this Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve shows deep, dense and rich aromas of black fruits, anise and roasted coffee beans. A big soft entry begins with chocolate covered cherries and blackberries that surround lush tannins and exotic floral notes. Savory spices mixed with cassis and sweet tobacco continue throughout a long finish. This wine is built for ageing and will benefit from five to fifteen additional years in the bottle. A very impressive cellar selection for the serious collector.
