Winemaker Notes

The 2017 Bergstrom Shea Vineyard Pinot Noir is gorgeous light cranberry color. It has effusive aromas of gingerbread, Chinese five spice, curry, and garam masala with cedar and sandalwood-like incense. Its distinct herbal and floral bouquet helps make this wine one of the more aromatically complex wines of the 2017 lineup, even at its early phase. This Pinot Noir is also intensely perfumed in the mouth and has great energy, fruit sweetness, and juicy acidity with fine, elegant ripe tannins that coat the palate. Structured but succulent and fruit forward, this is a very good vintage.

Critical Acclaim

WE 94
Wine Enthusiast

Production is up and quality as high as ever in this year’s Shea bottling. Tremendous concentration and balance characterize this stellar wine. It deftly combines raspberry fruit with orange peel and Dr Pepper flavors. The acidity is up and the tannins are smooth, with a fine-tuned minerality. Editors’ Choice

WS 94
Wine Spectator

Impressive for the presence and polish, with layered black cherry, fresh violet and dusky spice flavors that build richness and structure toward refined tannins. Drink now through 2025.

RP 92
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Medium ruby, the 2017 Pinot Noir Shea Vineyard is scented of blackberry preserves, smoked cranberries, burnt citrus peel, potpourri, scorched earth and tar hints with licorice notes. The medium-bodied palate is intense, layered and grainy with seamless freshness and a long, nuanced finish. Give this another year in bottle.

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.

Bergström Wines consists of five estate vineyards totaling 84 acres that span across four of the Willamette Valley’s best appellations: The Bergström Vineyard, Silice Vineyard, Winery Block, Gregory Ranch and Le Pré du Col. Each estate vineyard is farmed without the use of harsh chemicals, systemic or fertilizers, and the winery produces approximately 10,000 cases of ultra-premium and extremely sought-after wine each year, including two Chardonnays and nine different Pinot Noirs.

Yamhill-Carlton, characterized by pastoral, rolling hills composed of shallow, quick-draining, ancient marine soil, is ideal for Pinot noir and other cool-climate-loving varieties. It is in the rain shadow of the Coast Range to its west, whose highest point climbs to an altitude of 3,500 feet. Yamhill-Carlton is actually surrounded by mountains on three sides: Chehalem Mountains to the north, the Dundee Hills to the east and the western Coast Range to its west, which, when it lets Pacific air through, serves to cool the region.

Vineyards grow on the ridges surrounding the two small communities of Yamhill and Carlton and cover about 1,200 acres of this 60,000 acre region, which roughly makes a horse-shoe shape on a map.

Thin-skinned, finicky and temperamental, Pinot Noir is also one of the most rewarding grapes to grow and remains a labor of love for some of the greatest vignerons in Burgundy. Fairly adaptable but highly reflective of the environment in which it is grown, Pinot Noir prefers a cool climate and requires low yields to achieve high quality. Outside of France, outstanding examples come from in Oregon, California and throughout specific locations in wine-producing world. Somm Secret—André Tchelistcheff, California’s most influential post-Prohibition winemaker decidedly stayed away from the grape, claiming “God made Cabernet. The Devil made Pinot Noir.”
