  • Bernardus Winery Red Bordeaux Blend Carmel Valley Marinus 1997

    Snoothrank:

    Enjoyed this last weekend with some friends. Bordeaux-style blend, I could definitly make out the Cab Franc marker in the wine. Smooth finish, medium acidity and just a great wine to really enjoy. Did not pair it with anything. Just enjoyed it. Highly reccomend if you can find it. Read More

  • Chardonnay, oh Chardonnay. You really don’t have to be any better, do you? Back in the day when I lead staff tastings in retail we had Chardonnay tastings some four times a year. It’s the only time people would call in sick in order to opt out of staff tastings. The wines, at all price points, vary so much in style and quality that you were sure... Read More

  • Bernardus Winery Chardonnay 2011

    Snoothrank:

    Big and ripe on the nose with dripping pineapple fruit paired with toasty apricot tart and plenty of vanilla and ginger cream. Not as big as one might expect from the nose but certainly ripe with tropical fruit flavors redolent of mango and papaya along with over-ripe pineapple and creme brulee flavors. Theres plenty of acidity here so this is f... Read More

    Wine review by Reprice


  • Bernardus Winery Estate Marinus Marinus Vineyard 2006

    Snoothrank:

    The wine is a lovely deep purple color in the glass, and the nose exhibits a notes of red fruit, raspberries, cherries and blackberries along with some earthy elements of tobacco, leather and anise. The taste is very fruit forward, with flavors of ripe cherry and plum, transitioning to dry spices and cinnamon. The tannins are quite supple, lea... Read More

  • People are not going to like what I have to say here, but that is okay, this is not a popularity contest. I do not write about wine to gather as many friends or followers as possible. I write about wine because I love wine and while I know my palate sometimes strays outside of the mainstream, so be it. I know many other people share my tastes or... Read More

  • Bernardus Winery Red Bordeaux Blend Carmel Valley Marinus 2009

    Snoothrank:

    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 ...
