2004 Chateau St. Jean "Cinq Cepages" Sonoma County Cabernet Sauvignon

SKU #1036508 94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The 2004 Cabernet Sauvignon Cinq Cepages is a blend of 77% Cabernet Sauvignon, 9% Merlot, 7% Cabernet Franc and the rest Malbec and Petit Verdot. A big sweet kiss of incense, bay leaf, white chocolate, black cherries, black currants and a touch of smoke jump from the glass of this opaque purple-colored wine. Rich and concentrated, this comes across as one of the best vintages I have tasted of Cinq Cepages. There are still some light tannins in the finish and this wine, while clearly entering its period of maturity, has at least another 15 years of cellaring potential. (RP) Inner quote mark (4/2014)

92 points Wine Enthusiast

Outer quote mark Fans of CC will find a wine with the balance of previous vintages. It refuses to be a fruit bomb, but offers a wealth of sumptuous blackberry and cherry liqueur flavors that pull back at the last moment under a blanket of youthful tannins. Not a long-term ager, but should hold for 6 years, and is easy to find, with more than 13,000 cases produced. Inner quote mark (9/2008)

90 points Wine & Spirits

Outer quote mark Underneath the smoke of this wine's meaty black tannin there's a high-toned red fruit character, hinting at earthy roots and eucalyptus. A lamb chop will absorb some of the tannin and bring out the wine's elegance. Inner quote mark (6/2008)
