Chateau St. Jean 2002 Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon (Sonoma County)

This small-production reserve Cab from one of Sonoma's premier wineries is notable for its power. The tannins are quite firm, giving an astringent bite, while the fruity-oaky flavors are massive. Cherries, blackberries, raspberries, spicy plums, vanilla, cocoa and char just explode, yet the wine maintains balance. Good as it is, it's a young wine that will benefit from several years in the bottle.
