Winemaker Notes

The 2017 Bergström Wines Silice Pinot Noir is dark ruby red in color. The aromatic profile is not unlike a complex potpourri of fruits, spices, and herbs mixed with a saline note that makes the finish succulent and juicy. This is whole-cluster Pinot Noir at its finest. This wine is ripe, round and velvety, but also possesses the acidity and tannins of the vintage, much like a marionberry or boysenberry, which sew it up nicely in a very approachable wine now, but will also benefit from time in the cellar. 

Critical Acclaim

All Vintages
JS 93
James Suckling
This has an exotic edge with candied red cherries and raspberries, swathed in flowers and spice. The palate has a smoothly succulent edge that carries plenty of depth into the finish. Nicely weighted. Drink or hold.
RP 93
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Medium ruby, the 2017 Pinot Noir Silice Vineyard opens with fresh tangerine peel, baked cranberries, dried bark and rose petals scents with notions of licorice, cured meats, pepper and spiced blackberries. The palate is medium-bodied and über spicy, with lovely orange and potpourri nuances. It has a firm, lightly chalky frame and great freshness on the finish. This merits another year in bottle.

WS 91
Wine Spectator
Subtly intense, with appealingly brooding cherry, orange peel and rose petal notes that build structure and tannins on a lingering finish. Drink now through 2024.
W&S 91
Wine & Spirits
This is a powerful pinot, with a core of dense, dark strawberry and plum flavor that feels wrapped up tight in a firm plum-skin skein of tannins. Pour it with rare flank steak and chimichurri.
WE 91
Wine Enthusiast
Beet flavors emphasize an earthy character that puts herbal components up front along with tart red fruits. The overall structure and firm tannins suggest that a couple of more years of bottle age would be a plus.

All estate acreage is farmed biodynamically and all wines express the wonderful diversity of Oregon's many great terroirs.

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.

The Chehalem Mountains is a northwest-southeast span of several distinct mountains, ridges and peaks in the northern part of the Willamette Valley. Of all of Willamette Valley's smaller AVAs, it is closest to the city of Portland. Its highest summit, Bald Peak at an elevation of 1,633 feet, serves to generate cooler air for the rest of the AVA and its hillside vineyards. The region covers 70,000 acres but only 1,600 acres are planted to vines; soils of the Chehalem Mountains are a mix of basalt, ocean sediment and loess.

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.”
