Chateau St. Jean Merlot Sonoma County 2008
The wine is round and dense with polished tannins. Aromas of sweet black cherry, cola, and clove burst from the glass of this Merlot. These bright fruit characters carry over onto the palate and mingle with notes of blackberry and chocolate. Chateau St. Jean, built in 1973 on a family's dream to create a world-class winery, makes its home in the heart of Sonoma — a region of dramatic diversity perfect for growing a wide variety of exceptional grapes. Ever since, they have been passionate about crafting balanced, elegant wines. The winemaking estate is located at the foot of Sugarloaf Ridge in the Sonoma Valley near Kenwood, California. In keeping with the chateau's architecture and sense of place, the wine-tasting and retail room is housed in an elegant garden structure surrounded on three sides by terraces and outdoor garden spaces. The statue of St. Jean, the winery's namesake, stands in the main courtyard garden by the decorative fountain. There is also a Visitor Center and gardens that has been open to the public since the summer of 2000.
