The Chateau St. Jean Cabernet Sauvignon is a big, luxurious red wine in the tradition of Alexander Valley Cabernet Sauvignon. The 2012 growing season was long, warm, and mild, producing uniformly ripe and lush grapes. These grapes produce a red wine with striking aromas of boysenberry, blackberry, and cinnamon. The rich promise on the nose is fulfilled in a decadent mouthfeel on tasting, with fresh berry compote and baking spice flavors. This red wine has good structure, is well balanced, and has an elegant finish.
