Critical Acclaim

"(a blend of 56% merlot, 40% cabernet sauvignon, 2% cabernet franc and 2% petit verdot) Ruby purple. Spicy, floral-accented aromas of ripe, fresh raspberry and minerals. More fresh raspberry and red cherry on the palate, with silky texture contributing to an overall impression of sweetness. Finishes with a hint of warmth and a lingering note of violet. A classically styled Bordeaux, and by far the best young Bernadotte to date.

"A solid core of fruit in this young claret, with blackberry and chocolate character, medium body and medium finish. Dense and straightforward.
Barrel Sample: 87-90 Points "
