    Winemaker's Notes:

    Our Monterey Pinot Noir grapes are from the Griva vineyard in the Arroyo Seco appellation.

    Our 2011 Monterey Pinot Noir shows a bright, ruby red color with excellent clarity. In the nose we find beautiful aromas of ripe, red cherries and boysenberries. On the palate, flavors of bright ripe fruits along with subtle spicy notes fill the mouth and linger on a long, crisp finish. We feel this wine is an excellent match with a wide variety of dishes.

    At Bernardus, all our Pinot Noir grapes are hand picked block by block according to ripeness levels, hand sorted and fermented in small batches using specially selected yeasts. Each fermenter is pumped over twice daily in order to maximize extraction of flavor and structure.

    Critical Acclaim:

    A great Pinot Noir to lead off with, the 2011 Pinot Noir Santa Lucia Highlands offers up upfront, voluptuous and supple aromas and flavors of bright cherries, forest floor and earth. This medium-bodied, textured effort is downright delicious and is hard to resist. Drink now-2017.

    Tend to agree with other reviewer.This wine was a bit of let down. Can't see a score of 90 here. This was a pretty run of the mill pinot noir. Nothing horrible just not much to remember.Previous vintages were better.
