3. Bernardus Winery Red Bordeaux Blend Carmel Valley Marinus (2009)

« Prev Next » 3 of 11
Average price: $24.98 from 7 stores
This is intensely aromatic with notes of pencil shavings, dried rosemary and pressed flowers all swirling around a core of black currant, prune and juniper. Big and smooth in the mouth, it is packed with rosemary-tinged black currant, black plum skin and spicy berry fruit. This is smooth and approachable though it has an innate firmness. On the back end, some subtle but attractive herb notes emerge with air and drift off on the almost raspberry scented finish. This is a big wine, intense and assertive yet it manages to remain fairly fresh and certainly appealing. Lacks a bit of length and shows a touch of heat but this should be a crowd-pleaser. 91pts
