Mission Codename First Growth
Today’s Chateau St. Jean 2008 Sonoma Valley Estate Vineyard Cabernet Franc is a truly extraordinary gem of a wine. We did everything that we could to secure an ample allotment, but we were only able to come away with just a handful of cases.
This fantastic Franc melds old world French winemaking sensibilities with the more modern new world American stylings of St. Jean. The Franc is a blending component of the winery’s flagship Cinq Cépages, which is an incredible wine in its own right. What a joy it is to enjoy the same Franc that is in that wine - but all on its own.
Hurry, though, there isn’t very much of this great wine left!
