Cumberland Reserve is dark red cherry in color and showcases an explosive and heady aromatic profile of fresh black cherries, red raspberries a slight kirsch note and ripe blueberries. The fruit character is bright and pure and only slightly lifted and framed by great Oregon spice and loamy earth character which adds depth and dimension to this very promising wine.
RP90Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
Medium ruby-purple in color, the 2015 Pinot Noir Cumberland Reserve has an open, expressive nose of crushed raspberries, Bing cherries and cranberries with hints of violets, chocolate box and dried herbs. The medium to full-bodied palate is rich and opulent, with tons of baking spice and red berry layers supported by fine-grained tannins and a racy backbone, finishing long.
Bergström's lineup of Pinot Noir begins where many other wineries finish. This complex, earthy wine shows its fair share of herb and even a hint of stem, but those are offset by crisp, well-defined flavors of cranberry, cherry and spice. A fine example of this winery's house style.
