Winemaker Notes:

Bernardus is proud to present our second vintage of Estate Merlot. Our Merlot is grown as one of four Bordeaux varietals at Marinus vineyard in Carmel Valley. This is the second vintage we found to be so exceptional that it deserved to be presented as a single bottling. Marinus Vineyard is divided into 15 diverse blocks which produce 22 distinctive flavors. The blocks are identified by terroir and planting philosohies to create unique phenolics for blending.

The Merlot is cultivated primarily from the Hayden block of the Marinus Vineyard. This block is planted in a gentle sloping south facing canyon. The soil is sandy loam to a depth of 4 to 5 feet where it reaches a hard sandstone subsoil. These qualities combined with the moderate vigor produces a very deep and complex flavor profile.

The 1997 vintage presented us with fruit of great ripeness. Even in years like this, the Bernardus style leans towards elegance and subtlety and emphasizes the textural element of the estate Merlot.
