Wines where earthy and/or spicy dominate the flavors – typically medium to full body.
Full bodied wines that have concentrated fruit and are higher in alcohol and/or tannins. Some need age.
The 2009 vintage is showing beautifully, with bright fruit aromas and full, expressive flavors. The 2009 Rosella's Pinot Noir is a great example of this. In the glass the wine shows a classic deep ruby color. The exquisite aromas exude scents of ripe plum and red cherry accented with spices and notes of toasty oak. In the mouth the flavors are full and beautifully focused with a rich, silky texture and a long concentrated finish. This superb Pinot will age gracefully for several years to come.
The Santa Lucia Highlands are known as one of the premier Pinot Noir appellations of the world. One reason for this lofty reputation is Rosella's Vineyard. Gary Franscioni planted his home ranch, named for his lovely wife, in the heart of the Highlands. Gary's home vineyard is planted with a selection of the best available Pinot Noir clones and farmed with unparalleled passion and attention to detail. We at Bernardus are fortunate to have access to three small blocks planted with clone 777, Pommard clone and the celebrated Pisoni clone.
"The 2009 Pinot Noir Rosella's jumps out of the glass with sensual aromatics that find a lovely counterpoint on the palate. It is a gorgeous, understated Pinot with notable class and personality. Autumn leaves, flowers and tobacco add the final dimensions of complexity on the finish. The main Pinot clones here are Pisoni, 777 and Pommard 4. "

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.

the right climate, with the right soils and the right care. Perhaps because
it is so difficult is why it is so loved. Pinot Noir hails from Burgundy, a region known for crafting the most collectible and sought-after wines from this varietal.
