A blend of Coombsville and Yountville fruit, this wine is Julien’s interpretation of a classic expression of Cabernet Sauvignon from Napa Valley. It possesses structure and elegance, bright flavors and an aromatic freshness. Powerful notes of spice and black fruit are derived from the ripeness of the berries and excite the palate.
A blend of Coombsville and Yountville fruit, this wine is Julien’s interpretation of classic Cabernet Sauvignon from Napa Valley. Charismatic blackberry, boysenberry and sweet spice aromas on the nose expand into a broad, full expression of mocha and bright black fruits, with inviting wild blueberry and black raspberry notes. Fine-grain, mineral-driven tannins provide elegant structure to this graceful wine as it glides toward an irresistible finish of dark chocolate, espresso, and dried blueberry.
Julien’s Reserve Cabernet is crafted from multiple hillside vineyards spanning Napa Valley from north to south. Powerful and supple, this focused wine offers immenseenjoyment in its youth, but also has the structure and personality to evolve with grace in the cellar. The nose is dark and aromatic with juicy berries, coffee, and a touch of toasted brioche. In the mouth, the wine reveals its luminous purple fruit core, bright with sustained notes of plum and huckleberry, with spicy edges and a mid-palate burst of espresso with lemon zest. Soft, well-tailored tannins offer wonderful texture, while the lingering finish brings haunting notes of blackcurrant and mint tea.
The 2017 Lithic pulls you into a deep dive of ever-evolving aromatics – violets, blackberry, blood orange rind, black cherry, allspice, blue fruit, rosemary, pipe tobacco, black pepper…on and on. The silky entry opens to a broad midpalate, with fine tannins underpinning the entirety of the long, pipe tobacco-raspberry finish. Still young in its development, yet already very impressive, endlessly complex.
The Sumo is a show-stopper. Aromas of ink, mixed berry cobbler, resin, lilies, carob, asphalt, boysenberry, blueberry, black peppercorn. The ultra silky, mouth-filling palate is broad and plush, with sweet blue and black fruit, savory black peppercorn, flowers, tar, and graphite persisting through the very end of the super-long finish.
This Napa Blend is drinking wonderfully now and will age beautifully for many years. The aroma explodes with ripe cassis, blackberry, plum and a hint of cedar. The intense dark fruit is complimented by subtle hints of clove, toast, and soft vanilla. The palate is full and round with silky tannins that envelope the intense core of fruit that carries through to an incredibly long finish.
Stop! If you are holding a weapon, that will not be necessary for this bottle. Once you do get past the foil and the closure, you will find a ripe, plush, easy-on-your-eyes and palate Pinot Noir. It has a bouquet of forest floor, raspberry liqueur, stewed cherries and farm stand strawberries. It has a sweet core of ripe fruit and subtle oak. If you have C19(or not), you may think merlot or Cabernet Franc but if you do have C19, now would be a great time to enjoy all the corked wines and not this. The problem with this wine is that it is too easy to open another bottle. After all who can resist this rich and lush wine? If you have too many, you will be less rich but a lush for sure.

Blackberry-like ripe Cab flavors with amazing silky textural tannins and a persistent long finish. Power packed concentration from this low production vintage. Already delicious upon release, and will surely be an appealing wine for collectors - its powerful structure and rich flavors ensure this wine will be a favorite for years to come.
