    Winemaker's Notes:

    Deep ruby red in color, the 2008 Bergström Vineyard Pinot Noir is a potentially monumental Oregon Pinot Noir that has intense and ripe youthful aromas of dark cherry, red raspberry, chocolate, sweet spice and pepper, violets and the trademark ferrous (Iron) mineral quality. The Bergström Vineyard Pinot Noir always flirts within three different expressions of fruit, savory and mineral. At different periods of its ageing process, you will find the wine leaning more towards one than the other. In youth the wine tends to lean towards fruit and as it ages the wine goes through savory and then shows more mineral. This wine is medium to full bodied and will begin to drink well towards the summer of 2010 and will age well for at least a decade. This young 2008 reminds me very much of the 2002 which is still drinking beautifully with years ahead of it.

    Critical Acclaim:

    Sourced entirely from the biodynamic estate vineyard, this extraordinary wine delivers compact, complex, detailed aromas and flavors in perfect proportion. The blueberry and cherry fruit wreathed in dried herbs and flowers. Fourteen months in french oak, roughly half new, adds a thread of vanilla bean. Loads of dried extract, polished tannins and moist earth bring in more nuances.

    Lush, dense and rich with exquisite black raspberry, cherry and spice; complex, juicy and balanced with depth, floral notes and a long finish.

    The flagship 2009 Pinot Noir Bergstrom Vineyard comes from a site planted in 1999. Dark ruby red in color, it proffers aromas of Asian spices, balsam wood, violets, black cherry, and black raspberry. Combining power with elegance unusual for this vintage, it is a nicely proportioned, succulent, already complex, pleasure-bent Pinot that will provide enjoyment through 2019.

    Fresh and open-textured, with lovely transparency characterizing the plum and currant fruit, layering in hints of mineral, floral and spice notes as the finish dances on.

    Wine Spectator

    There is a fine tension in this pinot, the savory accents of mostarda and beetroot pulling against sweet strawberry fruit. The fruit flavors deepen to black cherry, with a freshness and grippy intensity to the tannins that give the wine length and energy. For plank-roasted salmon.

    Kerosene (11/22/2012)
    Clearly this is a highly-rated wine, but frankly, it was a bit too 'fruity' for my tastes, especially for an Oregon expression. I prefer a bit more subtlety and layering than I found with the Bergstrom.
