Winemaker's Notes

Our Marinus vineyard in upper Carmel Valley is planted with a blend of the five traditional Bordeaux varietals. The vineyard is separated into a number of small blocks according to soil type and exposure. Each block has its own unique terroir and is cared for with its own strategy in order to ensure its best expression.

The color we see in the glass is deep crimson and nearly opaque. Aromas are redolent with ripe black plums and cherries accented by notes of spice and smoke with a hint of earth. The flavors of ripe red fruits and spice notes fill the palate. The texture is very full and rich with firm supporting tannins. The finish is very long with flavors that linger on and on. Drink now, but over the next ten years this wine will become more smooth and more complex.

The 2003 vintage is comprised of 73.3% Cabernet Sauvignon, 19.6% Merlot, 3.6% Cabernet Franc and 1.9% Petit Verdot and 1.6% Malbec.

Learn About Bernardus Map ItMap It

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.
