Chateau St Jean Cinq Cepages Red Blend 750 mL
Cinq Cépages (“Five Varieties”) is a blend of the classic Bordeaux grapes consisting of Cabernet Sauvignon (76%), Merlot (13%), Cabernet Franc (5%), Malbec (3%), and Petit Verdot (3%). All five varietal components are used each vintage to create the stylized blend that is Cinq Cépages.
Before blending, each component is aged separately for twenty-three months exclusively in French oak, with just over half of all the barrels being new (51%). Once the components are assembled, the blend spends almost an entire additional year in the bottle before release.
92 POINTS! Robert Parkers Wine Advocate, 2014 vintage
"Composed mainly of Cabernet Sauvignon, with dollops of Cabernet Franc, Merlot, Malbec and Petit Verdot (hence the name), the 2014 Cinq Cepages Proprietary Red Wine has a deep garnet-purple color and nose of pure, crushed black currants and blackberries plus hints of garrigue, lavender, chocolate box and wild thyme. Medium to full-bodied, the palate is firmly textured with a solid frame of chewy tannins and great freshness, finishing long and earthy."
91 POINTS! Robert Parkers Wine Advocate, 2012 vintage
"The 2012 Proprietary Red Cinq Cepages is made from five Bordeaux varietals – 84% Cabernet Sauvignon, 6% Merlot, 6% Cabernet Franc, 2% Malbec and 2% Petit Verdot, aged 20 months in primarily French oak. The wine has a dense ruby/purple color, loads of crushed rock, cedar wood, chocolate, blackcurrant and Chinese black tea notes. It is medium to full-bodied, with sweet tannin and an impressive future. This wine will actually benefit from several years of bottle age and should last 15 or more years. 91+"
93 POINTS! Wine Spectator, 2010 vintage
"An authentic Bordeaux-style expression from Sonoma. Firm, dense and muscular, with a tight core of vivid blackberry, spice, cedar, loamy earth, black olive and cigar box notes, framed by tight, ripe, gripping tannins that extend the flavors. The finish impresses with purity, focus and complexity. Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Petit Verdot and Malbec. Drink now through 2026."
