The term Chorum is used in the performing arts to denote the “coming together of a select group of voices”. We feel that this is the perfect word to describe the essence of this exceptional wine: a coming together of a select group of our finest lots.
The 2016 Villa San-Juliette Chorum Red Reserve begins with a very nice, quite aromatic bouquet of plum, black cherry, blackberry, vanilla, baking spice, balsamic and more. Taking a sip reveals a smooth and tasty wine with lots of vanilla and chocolate notes from the oak along with plenty of really delicious fruit. It ends dry and long with lots of lingering oaky spice. This is a really lovely Petite Sirah based blend! Highly Recommended.
