Founded in 1973, Chateau St. Jean was conceived as a true fine wine estate in the European style, where wines from individual vineyards were kept separate to fully capture individual character of each site. The wines received immediate critical acclaim, and Chateau St. Jean was soon recognized as a leader in single vineyard designated wines.

Chateau St. Jean Red Wines
On the palate this wine shows soft, supple tannins with flavors of blackberry, boysenberry and vanilla, complemented by hints of clove, black peppercorn and tobacco. Balanced by its acidity, polished tannins and exotic oak, the wine shows a beautiful juxtaposition with contrasting flavors that work well to deliver a long and lingering finish.
Ripe fruit takes the driver's seat in this wine. All of the rich fruit is complemented by dark chocolate and toffee, and the structure of the wine is rounded out with finely integrated French oak tannins. Drinking well now, try the wine decanted and see how quickly the fruit profile grows, given a little time and oxygen.
