Estd. 1973. Crafted with great care by one of California's most highly acclaimed wineries, this Chateau St. Jean Merlot expresses great fruit intensity, richness and elegance. The grapes were selected from North Coast and Central Coast vineyards where Merlot grows best, creating a wine with blackberry and lavender aromas, jammy fruit flavors and hints of spice. Layers of cocoa powder, clove and plum last throughout the finish. Alc. 14.2% by vol.
