Winemaker 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

All Vintages
WE 95
Wine Enthusiast
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.
Cellar Selection
TP 95
Tasting Panel
Lush, dense and rich with exquisite black raspberry, cherry and spice; complex, juicy and balanced with depth, floral notes and a long finish.
RP 94
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
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.
W&S 93
Wine & Spirits
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.
WS 93
Wine Spectator
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.

Bergstrom
Bergstrom Wines is a family-owned and operated artisan producer of Pinot Noir and Chardonnay which was started in 1999 by Dr. John and Karen Bergstrom, with the help of their son Josh Bergstrom and his wife Caroline. Josh is general manager, vineyard manager and winemaker and pulls his expertise from his education in Burgundy, France and his 14 years experience making wines in Oregon's Northern Willamette Valley. Bergstrom focuses on hand-crafting small lots of wines from their fice estate vineyards carefully chosen from fice of Oregon's six wine-growing appellations. All estate acreage is farmed biodynamically and all wines express the wonderful diversity of Oregon's many great terroirs.

Home to the world’s most powerful wines made from the Nebbiolo grape, the Barolo village of Piedmont has long been known as “the wine of kings, the king of wines.” There are two predominant soil types here, which distinguish Barolo from neighboring Barbaresco as well as from the lesser surrounding areas. Compact and fertile Tortonian sandy marls define the vineyards to the west, typically resulting in fresher, fruitier, and softer wines that are approachable relatively early on in their evolution. This is sometimes referred to as the “feminine” side of Barolo and is closer in style to Barbaresco with its elegant perfume. On the eastern side of the region, Helvetian sandstone clay soils are chalkier and less fertile, producing age-worthy wines with full body and structured tannins—the more “masculine” style. The best Barolo wines need 10-15 years before they are ready to drink, and can further age for several decades.

Barolo is one of the world’s most distinctive red wines, and experienced tasters typically have no trouble picking it out of a lineup. In addition to Nebbiolo’s signature “tar and roses” aroma, one can expect to find complex notes of strawberries, cherries, leather, white truffles, anise, fresh and dried herbs, tobacco, violets, plum, and much more. Despite its deceptively light garnet color, Barolo has a full presence on the palate and plenty of tannin and acidity. The traditional style of Barolo relies on the use of neutral large wooden vats for aging, which do not impart flavor to the wine and preserve the natural character of the Nebbiolo grape. Meanwhile, a more modern, “international” style of Barolo utilizes small French oak barrels to add spicy, woody flavors and a softer texture resulting in earlier drinkability.

Nebbiolo

View all wine

Responsible for some of the most elegant and age-worthy wines in the world, Nebbiolo is the star variety of northern Italy’s Piedmont region. Grown throughout the area as well as in neighboring Valle d’Aosta and Valtellina, it is at its best in the Piedmontese villages of Barolo and Barbaresco. Nebbiolo is a finicky grape, and needs a very particular soil type in order to thrive. Outside of Italy, it often fails to show the captivating aromas for which it is so beloved, but some success has been achieved in parts of California.

In the Glass

Nebbiolo is an elegant variety with mouthwatering acidity and a compelling perfume of rose petals, violets, fresh tar, licorice, clay, and dried cherries. Light in color and body, Nebbiolo is a more powerful wine than one might expect, and its firm tannins typically need time to mellow. With age, it develops a velvety texture and a stunningly complex bouquet.

Perfect Pairings

Nebbiolo’s love affair with food starts in Piedmont, which is home to the Slow Food movement and some of Italy’s best produce. The region is famous for its white truffles and wild boar ragu, both of which make for excellent pairings with Nebbiolo.

Sommelier Secret

If you love Barolo and Barbaresco but can’t afford to drink them every night, you can try the more wallet-friendly, earlier-drinking Langhe Nebbiolo. But Piedmont’s best-kept secret is the northern part of the region, where outstanding earthy and rustic versions of the variety (known here as “Spanna”) are produced in Ghemme and Gattinara.
