2012 Signature Marinus

Our Marinus vineyard in upper Carmel Valley is planted with the five traditional red Bordeaux varietals. It is divided into small blocks per grape variety, exposure and soil type. Each block has its own unique terroir and is farmed, and hand harvested at peak ripeness to maximize quality.

In recent years, our Vineyard Manager Matt Shea and Winemaker Dean DeKorth have been busy refurbishing the Marinus vineyard with spectacular results. After exhaustive tastings of individual lots and barrels, our 2012 Signature Marinus was assembled representing the very best expression of this unique terroir. This bottling is truly the best of the best!

The 2012 Signature Marinus represents a selection of the best barrels from the best lots in 2012. It is both elegant, yet very powerful, exhibiting wonderfully intense aromas of ripe cranberry, black cherry and plums accented by spicy notes of cedar. The palate exhibits highly-focused red fruit flavors with hints of cassis and spice, supported by a beautifully balanced acidity on the long, well-structured finish. Our 2012 Signature Marinus demonstrates the superb quality of the Marinus Vineyard, with the fully ripe fruit flavors of California matched with the excellent ageing potential of the finest wines of Bordeaux.
