Wine Buy of the Day: Can drink now – but cellar 4-7 years if you want amazing
90 Points Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate | The 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon from Alexander Valley is outstanding. Earthy minerality along with black raspberry and black cherry fruit dominate the aromatics along with some forest floor. A medium to full-bodied, ripe, concentrated and impressive effort from Chateau St. Jean, it should be drunk over the next 15 or so years.
90 Points – Vinous Media | The 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon (Alexander Valley) is bold, punchy and super-expressive. Sweet red cherry, chocolate, plum, licorice and dark spices flesh out in a creamy, ample Sonoma Cabernet that will drink well with minimal cellaring. This is another extroverted, bold Cabernet from St. Jean and winemaker Margo Van Staaveren. Drink it over the next handful of years. – Antonio Galloni
Tasting Notes: The Alexander Valley Cabernet Sauvignon has a bright and inviting nose with loads of fresh berry aromas; boysenberry, blackberry and baking spice notes. The nose leads to a plush and juicy, full mouthfeel filled with fresh berry jam and dark chocolate flavors. The wine is well-structured with a dense core of fruit and smooth tannins
