2015 Chateau St. Jean Russian River Valley Pinot Noir

The Russian River Valley is a diverse appellation. The grapes for this wine were selected from the Hallberg vineyard located outside of Sebastopol. The vineyard is managed by Kirk Lokka who is committed to growing the finest Pinot Noir possible. The vineyard is unique with Goldridge sandy-loam soils and enjoys beautiful sunny afternoon weather tempered by fog and cooling coastal breezes. Three well-known and highly regarded Dijon clones were selected for this wine. Pinot Noir clone 777 is marked by smaller clusters on the vine while Clone 828 has larger, long and slender clusters. Both offer unique character like deep color, black cherry and cassis aromas, and focused sweet berry flavor. The third clone, 115 offers balance and a sensuous aromatic profile. All of the clones bring distinctive attributes and work well together in the final blend.

2015 Chateau St. Jean 45th Cabernet Sauvignon

Our 45th Anniversary Special Edition release celebrates our legacy of producing terroir driven wines from across the renowned region. Sourced from Alexander Valley, this Cabernet Sauvignon is an elegant yet structured representation of Sonoma County’s premier Cabernet growing region. Deep ruby in color, this Cabernet Sauvignon boasts a huge amount of blueberry, plum, and violets on the nose, with oak spices shining through. On the palate, blue fruit flavors combine with cassis and plum to create a very deep berry and fruit profile. The wine finishes with strong oak spice supported by the tannic structure. Very drinkable with a strong acidity complementing the tannins and fruit flavors. Drink now, or cellar for up to 15 years.

2015 Chateau St. Jean Robert Young AV Chardonnay

This classic Sonoma wine offers the hallmark aromas that are so distinctive to the Robert Young vineyard – bright lemon citrus, ripe stone fruit and lanolin. The inviting aromas lead to a full mouthfeel where the palate is filled with flavors of peach, fresh Meyer lemon, hazelnut and subtle nutmeg spice. The wine offers the classic Robert Young Chardonnay creamy texture, bright acidity and long-lasting lemon oil finish.
