Château St Jean Sonoma Cabernet Sauvignon 2009
Bright aromas of blackberry, red currant, cassis and hints of cedar box are inviting on this Sonoma County Cabernet Sauvignon. The wine is concentrated and structured with a plush fruit core of dark berry fruit. The palate is round and full and with a lingering finish.

World Wine –
Robert Parker/Wine Advocate – The 2009 Cabernet Sauvignon reveals plenty of Sonoma County Cabernet structure. Firm tannins support an expressive core of blackberries, cassis, menthol, graphite and minerals. The 2009 needs another year or two to soften, but it is highly intriguing. The 2009 is 88% Cabernet Sauvignon, 7% Cabernet Franc, 3% Merlot and 2% Petit Verdot drawn from vineyards in Knights Valley, Alexander Valley, Sonoma Valley and Dry Creek Valley. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2021.
In a mixed or straight case: $41.79
