RATINGS

94The Wine Advocate

...earthy nose of black soil, underbrush and truffles with a core of red cherries, black raspberries and black pepper. Medium-bodied with plenty of freshness and chewy in the mouth, it has a savory/earthy palate with a good amount of red berry and peppery layers, finishing with very good persistence.

94Vinous / IWC

... A complex, highly perfumed bouquet displays ripe dark berry and cherry scents, complicated by notes of peppery spices, smoked meat and incense. Urgent and focused on the palate, offering concentrated black raspberry, bitter cherry and floral pastille flavors and a strong suggestion of spicecake...closes with powerful thrust and silky tannins...

94Wine Enthusiast

...perfectly ripened black-cherry fruit, a dash of cola, and an underpinning of clean earth, complemented with a touch of mineral. The finish is superb.

93Burghound.com

...pretty red and dark currant along with violet wisps...good vibrancy, volume and mid-palate density to the delicious, suave and rounded medium weight flavors that also brim with dry extract, all wrapped in a firm, serious and well-balanced finale that is sneaky long...

93James Suckling

Vivid aromas of blueberries, spices and tar follow through to a medium body, firm and silky tannins and a chewy finish. Shows structure and class.

92Wine Spectator

Firm in texture, with peppery tannins around a gush of raspberry and cherry flavors, gliding into a long and expressive, deftly balanced finish.

17Jancis Robinson

Rich and zesty. Transparent and floral... Great energy...

PRODUCER

Bergstrom Winery

Bergstrom Wines is located in Oregon’s famous Willamette Valley, the heart of Oregon’s Pinot Noir country. Though the winery is young, having produced its first vintage only in 1999, it is already winning accolades from critics and connoisseurs. Owned by John and Karen Bergstrom, the estate includes a total of 37 acres planted to Pinot Noir and 5 acres planted to Chardonnay. Prior to creating the winery’s first vintage, son Josh Bergstrom spent time in Burgundy learning winemaking and vineyard practices. The winery is organic and prides itself on artisanal winemaking.

REGION

United States, Oregon, Willamette Valley, Dundee Hills

Dundee Hills AVA is in Yamhill County, and it is entirely contained within the Willamette Valley AVA, Oregon’s best known appellation. Dundee Hills is about 30 miles southwest of Portland, and has 1,300 vineyard acres. It was awarded AVA status in 2004 and, like much of Oregon, is known for Pinot Noir. Several of Oregon’s 20th century wine pioneers established their vineyards and wineries in Dundee Hills, adding to its status as a region long-recognized for producing high quality, iconic Oregon wines. Eyrie Vineyards, Erath Winery and Sokol Blosser remain some of Oregon’s most celebrated producers, and all were founded in what is now Dundee Hills in the late 1960s and early 1970s.

TYPE

Red Wine, Pinot Noir

This red wine is relatively light and can pair with a wide variety of foods. The grape prefers cooler climates and the wine is most often associated with Burgundy, Champagne and the U.S. west coast. Regional differences make it nearly as fickle as it is flexible.
