A Yen for Julien
The Carmel Valley's Chateau Juien is modeled upon the chateaux of the commune of St. Julien, Haut-Medoc, Bordeaux.
...James Halliday, Wine Atlas of California
If the architecture is from Bordeaux, then winemaker Bill Anderson must make a wine from Bordeaux's best grape, Cabernet Sauvignon. He does, and author Halliday says the Private Reserve Cab "shows ripe fruit with an interesting touch of cinnamon and spice." My tasters just tried the 1995 and gave it absolutely top marks.
1995 Cabernet Sauvignon, Monterey County
This year Bill will have some new grapes to massage. St. Julien's first vines
planted in the Carmel Valley go commercial this year. Stay tuned.
