Château Julien 1999 Estate Cabernet Sauvignon (Monterey County)

Darkly colored, brimming with blackberry aromas and oak that hits you across the head. It's new and well charred, with caramel scents. Tannins are thick and rather aggressive. Ambitious Monterey vintners continue to push against Napa. A wine like this advances the cause, but also shows how much remains to be done.
