Winemaker's Notes

COLOR: Rich red.

AROMA: Complex aromas of currant, plum, coffee, cinnamon, cherry and spice.

FLAVOR: Peppery flavors with nuances of sage, rosemary and red fruit.

Critical Acclaim

"A nice polished style. Rounded tannins surround a juicy core of raspberry ganache, plum and cassis flavors that lead to a long, spice-filled finish. Drink now through 2023. 1,200 cases imported."
92 Points

"Medium red. Sexy red berry and floral aromas are complicated by dried herbs and flowers, with a suave mineral undertone. Spicy raspberry and cherry on the palate, with silky tannins adding gentle grip. Finishes soft and long, with a lingering raspberry quality. This will drink well young. 90-92 "
92 Points

"The 2006 Chateauneuf du Pape La Bernardine’s dark ruby/purple color is followed by abundant aromas of sweet cassis, smoky black cherries, roasted herbs, and spice. This medium to full-bodied, supple-textured 2006 is best drunk over the next 8-10 years. "
