2008 Chateau Julien Merlot

Oooooh, smells like dark chocolate covered cranberries.   Not the chocolate covered cranberries you usually find in the supermarket but the more expensive Belgian chocolate covered dried cranberries.   Yum.   A bit of dirt and tobacco as well on the nose.   Amazing, spicy midpalate and a big finish – lingering fruit, yet dry.   I can’t wait to drink this again, maybe with steak or a burger.   A merlot with lots of ooomph!
