 Tasted by europat55 on 11/9/2013 & rated 93 points: This felt incredibly young today... it actually felt younger and more complex than the '00 & '01 vintages of the same wine I drank in recent years! Outstanding nose. Very complex palate with spices, leather and a good concentration of dark fruits. (1301 views)
 Tasted by jeginmt on 9/28/2013 & rated 94 points: A wonderful wine, aged beautifully, gets better every year so far, dark red, rich fruit, just enough tanins for good structure, long spicy finish. Very little sediment. Excellent complement to our Italian roast beef dinner. Decanted for an hour before drinking. Luckily I have 4 more bottles left from a case that I bought about 18 years ago upon recommendation of the wine maker who visited our local wine festival. (1295 views)
 Tasted by BoulderWine on 8/21/2013 & rated 92 points: Dark color, mature aromas. Dark sweet fruit. Very enjoyable with a grilled steak. Has held up very well. (1416 views)
 Tasted by PinkMoonWinery on 1/24/2013 & rated 92 points: What a wine! So amazingly well matured, nice leather, autumn leaves, dark chocolate very very long and great finish! (2049 views)
 Tasted by Whine-Oh on 5/28/2011 & rated 90 points: Had with Julia and Richie at home. Minimal Bricking.... Opened and let sit for an hour, some sediment. Elegant nose of some red and black fruits, very alive for a mature cab...Good fruit, nice midplatate, with some fine grained tannins to give it some appreciable structure, very much still alive and in a good place..

Chateau St. Jean

Producer website

Belle Terre Vineyard – Alexander Valley
For more than three decades, Belle Terre Vineyard has been synonymous with vineyard designation at Chateau St. Jean and, without question it is one of the most consistent and well-farmed vineyards in Sonoma. Belle Terre Vineyard, owned by the Dick Family, is located on the Russian River in Southern Alexander Valley. Chateau St. Jean has produced a Belle Terre Chardonnay since 1975. The terrain at Belle Terre consists of gently rolling land with well-drained, gravelly and sandy loam soils. In addition to a vineyard designated Chardonnay, Chateau St. Jean also crafts a Belle Terre Late Harvest Riesling and the Cabernet Sauvignon sourced from the vineyard contributes to Cinq Cépages.

California Wines (Wine Institute of California)

California is one of the most diverse wine regions in the world, with almost 100 grape varieties grown in over 100 viticultural areas, including dozens of ­different microclimates and soil types, as well as a very individualistic set of ­winemakers, many with international experience, which adds to and deepens that diversity.
