Chateau St Jean Cabernet Sauvignon Cinq Cepages 2003

375ML      
Sku: 053576

Cinq Cepages, a stylish blend of five Bordeaux varietals, is the flagship wine of Chateau St. Jean. Originally crafted from the 1990 vintage using Sonoma grapes including from our estate vineyards in Kenwood, the sourcing has expanded to include fruit from nearly every growing region within Sonoma County, making this elegant wine a superb representative of the appellation.

A blend of 78% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% Merlot and the rest Cabernet Franc, Malbec and Petit Verdot that finished at 14.4% alcohol, this highly desirable wine comes from Alexander Valley (two-thirds) and the rest from Sonoma Valley, Knight?s Valley and a small amount from Dry Creek in Russian River. The Bordeaux blend, which has been a consistent winner for the Beringer empire, is performing well in 2003. Notes of lavender, roasted herbs, licorice, sweet blackberries and Asian plums emerge from this intense, medium to full-bodied, lush red wine. The good news is that 12,600 cases were produced. This beauty is in its plateau of full maturity, where it should remain for another 5-7 years.
