2000 Chateau St Jean Cabernet Sauvignon Cinq Cépages Sonoma County

2000 Chateau St Jean Cabernet Sauvignon Cinq Cépages Sonoma County

90 points: "This fine wine, which is at its best now, offers polished flavors of currants, blackberries and herbs, with smoky nuances from oak. It is smooth and polished in the mouth, with a good balance of acids and tannins. Not an ager, but complex and elegant."
Wine Enthusiast (May 2004)

90 points: "Smooth and harmonious, with ripe, rich, supple plum and blackberry fruit, shaded by cedar, anise, black cherry and spice attributes. Firms up and flexes its tannic strength on the finish. Very well-made".

About This Wine


Vineyards
Fruit for this Cabernet Sauvignon was selected from the finest Bordeaux variety vineyards in Sonoma County; 37% from Alexander Valley, 36% from Sonoma Valley, 23% from Knights Valley, and 4% from Dry Creek 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.

Winemaking
Cinq Cépages ("Five Varieties") is a Bordeaux-style blend consisting of Cabernet Sauvignon (76%), Merlot (10%), Cabernet Franc (9%), Malbec (3%), 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.
