The flagship wine of Chateau St. Jean sets the bar for Sonoma County Cab. The 2017 Cinq Cepages (5 Varieties) is elegant and inviting, with aromas of fresh raspberry and sweet floral fruit. The lush mouth is filled with supple fruit and milk chocolate with some fall spice notes. It’s a cozy blanket of a wine for cool weather comfort.

Beautiful blackberry, mushroom, bark and oak leaf. Some pine cone, too. Full-bodied, round and savory with layers of ripe fruit. Rather chunky wine, but nicely done. Drink after 2025.
