Chateau Julien introduces "Black Nova"
Planning in the wine business can take years. This project is certainly one of them. Inspired by Bill Anderson during the harvest of 2006, Bill had a thought. I am sure that Bill was as nervous as anyone can be to walk into the owners' office and tell them he is combining the harvest Zinfandel with the harvest Syrah. Has anyone ever made a combination of those grapes together? The color of the wine and the steep intensity of flavor caused Bill to fight for his plan. Today, the wine is bottled and the only thing I can tell you ---- This wine is GREAT!
