2017 Chateau St. Jean Benoist Ranch Pinot Noir

Distinctive in every vintage, aromas of rose hips, black tea and savory dried herbs give way to flavors laced with minerality, Luxardo cherries, cola, sweet dark red fruits led by black cherry, with notes of blackberry bramble, cloves and cinnamon spice. Bright acidity is the hallmark of this nicely structured and well-balanced wine with a medium-full mouthfeel and a lingering finish.

2017 Chateau St. Jean Chardonnay Durell Vineyard

Signature Durell minerality, coupled with an intensity and plush mouthfeel are evident in this vintage, with aromas and flavors of creamy nougat, poached pear, tart meyer lemon and mango quickly following. Golden in color, with bright acidity, the wine lingers in a memorable finish. Oak spice and vanilla complete the flavor profile. Never shy, recognizable and telling of its origins, this is one of Sonoma’s most distinctive and well-known chardonnays.
