Description/ Tasting NotesMedium to deep garnet-purple in color and rolls effortlessly out of the glass with notes of wild blueberries, Black Forest cake and cinnamon toast plus nuances of black tea, cloves and pencil shavings. Medium-bodied, the palate is packed with energetic, juicy fruit, supported by chewy tannins and oodles of freshness, finishing with red fruit sparks.

Region Info/ Origin
Saint Julien first became famous for its Bordeaux wine back in the 17th century. At that time, St Julien was in the stage of development, to become a major Bordeaux wine producing appellation in the Left Bank when the entire area of the Medoc was discovered and populated by wealthy aristocrats. Coinciding with creating the famous vineyards we know today, the new landowners quickly began erecting massive showpiece chateaux throughout the region. Many of the original Saint Julien estates are still standing today and can be easily noticed while driving down the famous D2 highway.
