Natalie's Score: 91/100

Long recognized for producing quality Cabernet Sauvignon, Chateau St. Jean’s superbly priced version is no exception. Front and centre are ripe cassis, raspberry and wood-smoke. With the fruit nicely balanced by mid-palate tannins this wine is dry, rich, ripe and forward. Enjoy it tonight. A full-bodied, well-structure cabernet with classic notes of cassis, blackcurrant and blackberry. Food matches: beef brisket, gourmet burgers, rich meat-based pasta dish.

Darlene Myers CAPS Sommelier rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:

When I visited the Napa Valley, the Sonoma County was one of my favorites, and I actually spent most of my vacation in this region. I love this wine because it reminds me of Sonoma. In the glass this wine boasts flavours of blackberry, red currant and cedar. It's a nice full bodied wine with a lingering finish.
Community Reviewer reviewed this wine as follows:

Lush aromas of juicy black fruit, dark chocolate and soft brown spice follow through to deep flavors of ripe berries and black tea; all well-structured with supple, round tannins and a full, satisfying finish.

Les arômes riches de fruits noirs juteux, de chocolat foncé et d’épices brunes douces se poursuivent jusqu’aux saveurs profondes de baies mures et de thé noir ; vin bien structuré avec des tannins subtils et ronds et un fini complet et satisfais

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a fiesty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

The Financial Times of London

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
