2013 Cinq Cépages, Red Blend

The 2013 growing season in Sonoma County was long with mild temperatures resulting in very high quality fruit coming into the winery. The 2013 Cinq Cépages captures the highlights of this vintage. The opening bouquet offers layers of aromas including black raspberry, sweet currant, lifted perfumed violet and notes of baking chocolate. Secondary aromas of roasted coffee and nuanced notes of Earl Gray tea and spice add complexity. The aromas lead to a plush palate with depth of flavors including raspberry compote and dark chocolate. The full-bodied wine is rich and refined with well-integrated, ripe tannins giving good structure. In signature Cinq Cépages form, this wine combines the strength of the diverse Sonoma County region to create an approachable, well-balanced and elegant wine.

2017 Sonoma County Reserve Chardonnay

The 2017 Chateau St. Jean Reserve Chardonnay offers complex aromas of Meyer lemon, fresh ginger, toasted almonds and baking spice. The nose rings true on the palate with layered flavors of Crenshaw melon, lemon curd and hints of brioche toast. The well-structured wine is broad and balanced with a warm, rich texture and vibrant acidity. The long, flavorful finish shows a classic lemon verbena flavor that is a hallmark for the Sonoma County Reserve Chardonnay.

2015 Eighty-Five Fifty-Five Red Wine Blend

Each offering of this unique reserve blend shows a distinct personality, influenced by the selection of varietal, growing region and the vintage. An intense aroma of toffee and caramel offer the first hint that this powerful, expressive wine is a memorable expression and representation of Sonoma County in vintage 2015. Dark fruits led by black currants, wild blackberries, black cherry, ripe plums and notes of milk chocolate and mocha give way to evident tannins and a rich, full mouthfeel. Oak spice, cedar and a notably long finish confirm this bold wine will prove to gain further complexity over the next 7-10 years.

2015 Sonoma County Reserve Pinot Noir

Chateau St. Jean’s Reserve wines are crafted by selecting the vineyard lots throughout Sonoma County offering the most generous fruit expression and the ability to age. This 2015 Reserve bottling is a blend of Pinot Noir from vineyards in Russian River Valley as well vineyards from Sonoma Coast. The grapes from these vineyards provide structure and fine-grained tannins, along with beautifully concentrated fruit flavors.
