Lunch au QG
Nez séduisant qui m'évoquait le merlot, avec ses arômes de truffes et de chocolat,. Bouche bien mûre, charmeuse, sans tomber dans la putasserie. Un des meilleurs Cinq Cépages que j'ai pris. 91-92 pts

garnet, no bricking.
slight brett out of the gate but subdued enough to lend characater to what is a remarkable wine.
very ripe fruit, cassis liquour, leather, tar and a touch of earthiness (probably the slight brett) very long finish, ending just slightly oxidized which tells me this wine is in a slow decline.
I'd score this somewhere between 92-94.
That said, I think this wine was probably drinking better about 5 years ago.

For the price, I'm a little disappointed. It isn't bad, but it isn't anything outstanding either. There is some nice fruit and some leather on the finish (which is the best part). Still some tannin so it has a few more years yet.

Deep dark color, significant legs. Nose blooms with half an hour in the glass. This s is the second to last bottle of a case bought at the winery. Had one or two bottles every so often starting in 2005, with 2012 or 2013 seeming to be peak quality. This wine is excellent but may be on the downward slope.

Wine Advocate Review: 92 points

Far superior is their flagship offering for Bordeaux varietal blends, the 2010 Cabernet Sauvignon Cinq Cepages, which is 78% Cabernet Sauvignon, 12% Merlot, 5% Cabernet Franc and the rest Petit Verdot. It possesses a deep ruby/purple color along with notes of cranberry sauce, black cherries, black currants, dusty, loamy soil, unsmoked cigar tobacco and underbrush. Medium to full-bodied and rich with light tannins as well as a textured mouthfeel, there are 7,000 cases of this beauty that can be enjoyed over the next 10-12 years.

Awfully good and improving. The last time I drank this was in 2011 with friends Rick and Linda (with whom we bought this at the winery in 2009) and Dan and Linda. This CSJ flagship is deep indigo in color. The nose opened a touch musty but over time, began to reveal some mushroom, some spice...thyme, bay leaf maybe and a hint of cedar. On the palate, deep dark fruit..plum, blackberry, currant, tobacco box and a touch of what I characterize as Alexander Valley pepper. Finally a medium finish with a hint of oak. Drinking nicely now but may still improve. Will certainly last.

Decanted, drank over two days. Black berry and floral notes on the nose. Palate was blackberry, blueberry, slight graphite hints. Smooth and well integrated fruits. Medium to long finish... with a little tannins at the finish. Generally, a very nice sipper.

held a bit too long, earthy barnyard aromas hard to aerate out, medium fruit remaining with medium body, plum and dark cherry fruit, fair amount of sediment thrown, might be in a "dumb" phase but doubt it.

2010 Chateau St. Jean Fumé Blanc

Not normally a fan of Fume Blanc, this one has always been a pretty close to my heart. Chateau Saint Jean was the third place I ever tasted, in wine country, and they offered this as one of their three tastes of white wine. It was unique and tasty then, and still is now. I believe the bottle age this 2010 received in storage somewhere has really enhanced the flavors. Very dark for a Sauvignon Blanc. There is a commendable richness from some barrel aging and malo lactic. The nose has ginger ale, mature wine barrel, tree sap and citrus. Still very crisp, the lemon, lime and other citrus dominate the lighter melon and peach flavors. Gains flavor momentum as it slides down the palate, and also as we drink down the glass. Some taste of barrel with acid and fruit on the finish.

I'm a fan of CSJ over the years, particularly the whites. This bottle of merlot is simply a ridiculous value. I purchased at Costco - $10 and have had two bottles- both the same. The second was left open in the cellar for 24 hours with no hint of oxidation. Right bank bordeaux in style, not profound or complex but interesting, earthy, balanced and nuanced. Easy case purchase. Wine value of the year thus far...

This one has butter, butter, and MORE butter. Served with Tuscan seasoned pork loin, quinoa, and green beans. The wine had a GREAT nose on the front...creme brulee, movie butter, butterscotch, hint of peach. The wine itself was FULL MALOLACTIC on the entry....VERY soft. Creme brulee, kiwi, mango. As it opened, a peach note started to trickle in. The mid-palate dried, and finished with a little white pepper. Spicier with the food than alone. Still quite a bit dry, so I think this one can probably hold 5-7 years and show at least a LITTLE bit of aging potential like the Robert Young chards are notorious for (10-20 years for THEM!). This was a great interpretation by another vintner/winemaker to fruit that I am very familiar with. Although I don't recommend serving it with lime cilantro shrimp because the wet dog, gym sock, and rancid butter notes came out QUICK!
