Polished and elegantly complex, with supple raspberry, orange peel and fresh violet accents that build richness and structure on a lingering finish. Drink now through 2025. 600 cases made.
94pts James Suckling
Really impressively cast complexity on the nose with ripe red to dark cherries and a super plush web of fine, long tannin that carries long and convincing. The finish is expansive, as good pinot should be. Drink across the next six to eight years.

Toasty, focused and still quite young, this showcases the winery's original 1999 plantings. The barrel flavors bring a wash of espresso, wrapping the ample cherry fruit and carrying the wine through a long finish. Drink 2022–2030. - PAUL GREGUTT
The 2017 Bergström Vineyard Pinot Noir is dark brilliant ruby in the glass. The aromas are almost indescribable, but they are effusive and intoxicating with citrus oil, tarragon, basil, mint, dark wild cherry, ripe strawberries, red roses, grilled meat, as well as a terracotta, baked clay minerality. It is bright and vibrant with dark cherry and red plum flavors complemented by savory herb and meaty notes which all lead into a juicy, succulent, and mouthwatering finish that is long, spicy, and complex with an iron-rich finish. This wine has a great future ahead! Drink 2020-2035+.
