2016 Chateau St. Jean Reserve Merlot, Sonoma County
Vivid aromas of ripe raspberry and darker spice components of cinnamon and clove. The aromas lead to a plush, full-bodied palate with juicy red and blue fruit flavors which mingle with notes of espresso and cocoa powder.
After the lots were aged separately for more than 25 months in small French oak barrels, the most outstanding barrels were chosen and blended to create this 2016 Reserve Sonoma County Merlot.
Following a full additional year of bottle age, this wine was released exclusively for our Chateau guest and you, our club members.
