"the and distinctive for the earthy edge to the raspberry and fresh rhubarb flavors, which come together smoothly on the long, generous finish."(Wine Spectator Insider for May 7, 2008) One star from the Connoisseurs' Guide to California Wine: "Oregon Pinot Noirs more often than not are wines of precision rather than ripeness and power, but this attractive version from Bergstrom succeeds nicely. Well-fruited and fully ripened, it is a plush and well-extracted effort that is rife with sweet cherries and creamy oak. It is big, but always in balance, and it finely fit tannins provide the structural spine for mid-term improvement." (Oct. 2008) Bergström made a deep, brooding pinot noir from the de Lancellotti grapes in 2006. Blessed with red fruit coupled with hints of anise, pepper and incense on the nose, dark fruits with a minty lift characterize the juicy, complex palate. Only 455 cases produced!
