Gold Medal Wine Club members get a special sneak peek at Joullian Vineyard's not-yet-released, 1996 Cabernet Sauvignon. This wine is only available through the Club until the winery’s official release in September 2000. While most wineries are already releasing their 1998 vintage wines, Joullian holds back their wines to allow extra maturation time in the bottle. This means a smoother, more complex wine for you to enjoy right away.

The 1996 Joullian Cabernet is the result of a picture perfect harvest in the Carmel Valley. The beautiful purple-garnet color invites immediate interest. The nose pulls in rich, ripe, blackberry and black cherry fruit aromas that also follow through and show up nicely in the mouth. The texture is soft and supple, the edges are smooth. The finish is long and generous on fruit, with back-of-the-palate hints of tannin and cedar. This is a classic Bordeaux style style wine with 8% Merlot and 2% Cabernet Franc.
