Winemaker's Notes:

This 100% Monterey County wine has delicate notes of blueberry and plum that are rounded out with a touch of cinnamon.

The lighter fruitier style of this Pinot lends it a wonderful versatility in food pairing. It's a particularly good selection when choosing a red wine for lunch or a warm evening.

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.
