ratings pedigree (past vintages):
2007 Wine Enthusiast rating: 90 points

Winemaker's Notes:

In the glass, the 2006 Marinus exhibits a beautiful deep crimson color. Aromas express spicy red fruits accented by notes of dried herbs and subtle toasted oak. The flavors of black cherry and spice provide a delicious drinking experience even in its youth, though this vintage will age gracefully for several years to come.

Blend: 65% Cabernet Sauvignon, 25% Merlot, 5% Cabernet Franc, 5% Petite Verdot

About Bernardus:

Bernardus Winery was founded in 1990 in the Carmel Valley. Ben Pon's goal is to make red wines comparable to those of Bordeaux. To this end, he selected a mountain site in the Carmel Valley appellation to plant his Marinus Estate Vineyard. This site was chosen because of its unique joining of varied soils and sunny inland climate moderated by a marine influence - ideal conditions for the production of Bordeaux varietals.
