Winemaker Notes

Dark ruby red in color with violet reflections in the glass, the 2016 Silice Pinot Noir has a wild aromatic bouquet that leaps from the glass. Boysenberry and dark cherry fruit mingles with sassafras, cinnamon graham crackers, anise, dried herbs, smoked game, tobacco and leather. This wine is distinctly old world in character with great earthiness, mushroom, meat and tobacco flavors, yet retains a bright core of fresh fruit, spice and flowers with succulent acidity and plentiful fine-grained tannins. This is a wine for the cellar and I recommend giving it 3-5 years before enjoying, but it will live and drink well for two decades or more. If consumed in its first 3 years of life, I recommend splash decanting before drinking.

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
Pale to medium ruby-purple in color, the 2016 Pinot Noir Silice Vineyard is very savory on the nose with notions of smoked meats, black pepper and olive over spicy black fruits. Medium to full-bodied, it fills the mouth with brambly black fruits, layers of bacon fat and pepper, with a wonderful juicy freshness to lift all that density and a good frame of grainy tannins, fleshing out on the long, savory finish. This is very Syrah-esque!

Wine & Spirits
The pinot noir from Silice, a 21-acre vineyard planted to multiple clones of pinot, is typically one of Josh Bergström’s more savory reds. This wine, tasted from magnum, has a pleasing scent somewhere between spice, clove, freshly turned soil and pu-erh tea. The plum flavors are dark and subdued, with an acidity that will make you forget the earthiness as soon as it’s noticed. This is savory and complex, a wine you may need to walk toward to engage, but do so, with game…like roast quail.

Wine Enthusiast
This new vintage of this signature cuvée has a strong scent of tanned leather, and those tack room flavors mute down the plum and cherry fruit. For some tasters, this is a feature, if not a benefit; for others, it may be a bit disappointing. Just one bottle was provided and tasted.

Willamette Valley

Pinot Noir

View all products

Home of some of the planet’s most amazingly elegant and expressive Pinot noir, the Willamette Valley is a pastoral, mixed landscape of green, bucolic rolling hills, dramatic forestlands and small, independent, friendly wine growers. As a leader in environmental stewardship, the valley has some of the nation’s most protective land use policies, with two-thirds of its vineyards farmed sustainably and over half, organically. While the valley claims a cool, continental climate, and is heavily influenced by the cold, moist winds of the Pacific Ocean, its warm and dry summers allow for the steady, even ripening of Pinot noir.

The potential of Willamette Valley Pinot noir continues to attract the investment of serious growers and winemakers both locally and from abroad, as naturally the finished wines bring accolades from professionals and enthusiasts. With a range of styles from delicate dried cherry, raspberry and hibiscus to stronger notes of truffle, mocha, plum and spice, a fine Willamette Valley Pinot noir is a perfect expression of both character and grace.
