VinousVivid red. A high-pitched, spice-accented bouquet of ripe red and dark berries, peppery spices and minerals, accompanied by a strong potpourri quality. Supple and expansive, offering juicy black raspberry and bitter cherry flavors that put on weight and become sweeter with air. In a plush, seamless style, displaying strong finishing thrust and smooth, slowly building tannins that add shape.

Wine SpectatorA silky, refined style, with red currant, raspberry and damson plum coulis notes forming the core, backed by light rooibos tea and lavender hints, leading to an elegant, sandalwood-edged finish. Drink now through 2020. Tasted twice, with consistent notes. 2,200 cases imported.

Wine AdvocateThe entry-level 2014 Châteauneuf du Pape La Bernardine is a total charmer that gives up lots of saddle leather, black currants, garrigue and spice, with a supple, mid-weight and quaffable style that's ideal for drinking over the coming 3-4 years.
