This Reserve Malbec bursts forth with vivid aromas of black cherry, fresh blackberry and blackcurrant, followed by hints of clove and a bright essence of violets. The nose leads to a lush palate with powerful, grainy tannins that will smooth with age.
*This wine only ships to select states.

This Reserve Malbec leaps from the glass with a deep, rich perfume and sweet notes of boysenberry confiture, dark plum jam, cassis and vanilla. On the palate, it is full-bodied and bold, concentrated blackberries, black currant and kirsch, layered subtly within the wine.

Production Notes

Overall, 2017 proved to be slightly smaller yielding vintage but of exceptional quality. Warm late summer temperatures led to a quick and intense harvest. Fruit was allowed to mature and ripen perfectly on the vines before harvest officially began.

Vineyard Notes

Chateau St. Jean’s Reserve wines are crafted by selecting vineyard lots from throughout Sonoma County that offer the most generous fruit expression and the ability to age.
