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. – Description from Kursulla

    50% cabernet Sauvignon, 45% Merlot, 5% Petit Verdot Dark, plummy and chocolatey on the nose with hints of candied berry fruit, something a bit pruny, and subtle peppery spice notes. Rich and chewy in the mouth, with lovely ripe tannins and integrated acids all supporting a somewhat chunky core of plummy, mineral edged fruit. This is medium plus ... Read More
