Winemaker Notes

Our 2009 shows particularly bright aromas of gooseberry, citrus, banana and melon with notes of fresh grass and hints of the typical Arroyo Seco minerality. The mouthfeel is round and full. The flavors exhibit ripe tropical fruits with notes of grapefruit which are supported by a refreshing acidity.

Wine Enthusiast
When Bernardus gets Sauvignon Blanc right, which they did in this vintage, they avoid those notorious feline aromas and go straight toward fruit. This is such a wine. It flatters the mouth with Meyer lemon cream, pineapple tart and vanilla flavors, accented with minerals and richly edged with crisp acidity. With a bit of buttered toast from partial barrel fermentation, it's just delicious.

The focus of Bernardus is to create wines that flatter the palate and stimulate the imagination. Our Marinus Estate Bordeaux-style red wine is the centerpiece of owner Ben Pon's dream. It is complemented by Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Sauvignon Blanc from cool coastal climate vineyards. We also offer limited bottlings of small production and vineyard designate wines, which are available exclusively through the tasting room and wine club... taste a dream.

Pon appreciates wine as an art-- a form of art that transcends the ordinary. His dream with Bernardus is to make a red wine equal to the finest from Bordeaux. To achieve this purpose, Ben, a Dutchman who could have planted vineyards anywhere in the world, has chosen the Carmel Valley for his estate vineyards and winery. Since the early 1970's, there has been a growing awareness of the outstanding potential for Bordeaux varieties from this new viticultural appellation. The Bernardus estate vineyards of Marinus and Featherbow Ranch are located in the Cachagua region of the Carmel Valley. We have been told that Cachagua is the Spanish word Native Americans used for deep or hidden water. It has been said that Native Americans believed that all things in nature were sacred and interrelated. Their respect for balance in nature is carried on in the vineyards of Bernardus. More than 300 live oaks have been preserved to thrive among carefully planted vines.
