Chateau St. Jean Merlot (California) 2011 wine review by (PB)
Black cherry hue with vegetal green pepper aroma first from the glass followed by black berry.
Palate--somewhat coarse on the first impression with a clunky kind of presence in the mouth. Berry foundation with a quick finish.
Chateau St.Jean generally produces wines at all levels that are well made and value wines as a whole. This tastes like it was made with unripe fruit. I would pass on this one.
