Chateau St. Jean, Cabernet Sauvignon, 2008

While I haven't had one in a little while, I'm a fan of Chateau St. Jean. I finally tried their 2008 vintage and found it to be reasonable, but not great. It's hard to say what's missing and it could very well be just more time in the bottle. In general, the quality is there, the flavors are all there (albeit, a bit faded) and it gets that initial impression of a great wine, but finishes like a decent-but-not-great one. I'll be waiting to taste some more of it next year.
