Deep dark red hue, and rich purple edge. 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.
Chateau Julien Wine Estate was founded by Bob and Patty Brower in 1982, a 16-acre estate located in Carmel Valley, California. The winery boasts breathtaking vistas of the lush green valley surrounded by the majestic Carmel Valley Mountains. The building itself is a replica of a home on the French/Swiss border. The Browers' commitment to hospitality can be seen, since it along with warmth exudes from the moment guests enter the chateau. A comfortable, inviting atmosphere is extended to each and every guest—a magnificent grand fireplace, open beam ceilings, and well-appointed antiques set the stage for tasting Private Reserve wines. The winery is open to visitors daily for wine tasting and tours, and there are several separate venues for hosting private events—each room offering a unique setting for guests to enjoy.
