94 • Château Julien 2006 "La Conviviance", Monterey County $90.
Rich garnet color. Lovely aromas of toffeed chocolate rice bars and baking spices follow through on a round, supple entry to a dryish medium-to-full body with great depth and a tangy, lively, lightly meaty finish. A fun sipper or table wine to experiment with haute Asian cuisine. (tasted on Feb-08-2010)

Ruby black color. Aromas of spicy berry compote, dried flowers, and honey custard follow through on a soft entry to a dryish medium body with cracked pepper and cocoa notes. Finishes with a tangy cranberry and earth fade. Very tasty and easy drinking. (tasted on Jan-25-2010)
