Bergstrom Pinot Noir Bergstrom Vineyard Dundee Hills Ava 2005

Winemaker's Notes:

Their 15 acre Pinot Noir vineyard, first planted in 1999 by the Bergstrom family, sits on a unique basaltic flow in a bowl shaped, south-east facing slope in the Dundee Hills. This site, for only being 8 years old, is producing world-class Pinot Noirs which will rival the best wines from Burgundy and beyond. Farmed certified Biodynamic since the 2004 vintage (and organically since its first planting), the Bergstrom Vineyard continues to go from strength to strength, showcasing why the Oregon Pioneers chose the Dundee Hills as a starting point and anchor for the great Oregon wine industry. With a dark scarlet hue, this year's Bergstrom Vineyard is deep and intense in color to the rim of the glass. The aromatic explosion is a concentrated mix of ripe red cherries, wild forest strawberries and intoxicating oak spice with a solid core of minerals and stone. This wine is plush and silky in texture balancing enormous fruit and mouthfeel with suave and ultra-fine grained tannins. This wine should drink well from 2007 until 2017 if cellared well.
