Chateau Julien Wine Estate

1458 visitors

In 1996, Château Julien Wine Estate started a new venture with a partnership in an "Estate Vineyard" in South Monterey County's Lockwood Valley. Over 25% of the 246-acre vineyard is planted with the winery's flagship varietal, Merlot. Chardonnay and Cabernet Sauvignon are also grown in addition to experimental blocks of Sangiovese, Zinfandel, Syrah, Pinot Grigio, Marsanne, Malbec and Cabernet Franc.

Located in a unique coastal valley on the western Santa Lucia Mountain Range, the vineyard sits at a 980 foot elevation and is a short 14 miles from the Pacific Ocean. The vineyard's slight elevation, diurnal temperature variations and ideal gravely, loam soil result in wines with intense varietal characteristics unique to Monterey County. With a slightly warmer climate, the Estate Vineyard continues to benefit from coastal influences and Monterey County's long growing season.

Sleek, lean and vibrant. Spice, floral and wild berry aromas fold over to the palate, where they're intense, focused and delicate, finishing with a burst of wild berry flavors. Drink now through 2011.
