From February 2010 at Blogarhythms.
Another quick wine entry from this year. There was a question on the price because it had been mismarked by the store. But when I went to inquire, the staff couldn’t quite get it worked out. As a result, I paid a bit less than the price listed here. They kept telling me, however, that the price was the same as the Chateau St. Jean Sonoma, but I knew better. The price below is what the store now has on this selection. Please remember, I am not a pro at this. So my notes are just that – a recording of what my tastebuds and nose experienced.
Vineyard: Chateau St. Jean
Notes: Strong bouquet of blackberries and violets that translate to the palate and linger through. Core fruit flavors add plum with spice notes. Very easy-to-drink medium bodied red with a nice light tannic punch on the finish.
