Chateau Julien Barrel Selected Royalty Red 2010

Winemaker's Notes:

This wine’s deep dark red hue, and rich purple edge is followed by a plum, jammy aroma reminiscent of freshly ripened fruit. Its mild, smooth tannins showcase a bit of oak aging, balanced with complexity through the finish.

In the late 1970's, Bob and Patty Brower set out to fulfill their dream. Originally from the East Coast, they had a passion for wine and admired the French hospitality encountered while traveling in Europe. They saw the potential in Monterey County as a quality wine growing region, and in 1982 began building what is now known as Château Julien Wine Estate in Carmel Valley, California. The winery's first release came in 1985 with Chardonnay and Merlot from the 1982 vintage. Today, the entire process of wine production takes place on the 16-acre estate, including the aging of nearly 2000 oak barrels of wine. Winemaker Bill Anderson joined the Browers in 1982, and produced the winery's first 100% Merlot with the premier vintage. Bill continues to produce wine at Château Julien Wine Estate, and has played an integral part in establishing Merlot as the winery's flagship varietal. Read less

Made from a blend of Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Syrah The Royalty Red was decent for a blended wine with hints of plum, blueberry's as well as other wild berry's with a strong oak taste at the end. I'm usually not one for lots of oak flavor in my wine but this one had a nice balance to it
