Medium to deep ruby-purple, the 2016 Pinot Noir Bergstrom Vineyard has lovely notions of tar and scorched earth framing summer violet perfume and black cherries/berries on the nose with a touch of blue fruit appearing with aeration. Medium to full-bodied, it’s got a wonderful silky texture in the mouth, with layers of blue and black fruit preserves and perfumed earth, very fine-grained tannins and wonderful freshness, finishing long and minerally.

The winery's top cuvée is sourced from the original 1999 plantings. Intensely aromatic with complex suggestions of toast, spice and sandalwood, this is a wine to explore at length. The red and blue berry fruit flavors are framed with citrusy acidity, and the extended finish somehow conjures up salted caramel. It's a bit lighter and lower in alcohol than the 2015, but in terms of complexity and stylish detail, it's its equal.

A more herbal edge to the nose here with an array of ripe black cherries, as well as strong, oak-derived baking spices. The palate has a very smooth, supple and gently creamy edge and a very detailed array of grainy tannins to close.
94pts Wine Spectator
Expressive and generous, with lively black raspberry, spice box and orange peel flavors that build rich and elegant layers toward refined tannins. Drink now through 2025.
