Bergstrom Vineyards 2006

Winemaker's Notes:

Our 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. This vineyard is meticulously hand farmed and creates wines of great potential for early enjoyment or extended cellar aging. TASTING NOTES: The 2006 Bergstrom Vineyard is a barrel selection from all 8 of the clonal blocks of the Bergstrom Vineyard. This year, almost 50% of the 13 acres' wine from the Bergstrom Vineyard made the selection for the Vineyard Designate which is the most in the vineyard's history with a total of 1200 cases being bottled! The 2006 Bergstrom Vineyard Pinot Noir has a deeper hue this year than in previous years with a dark scarlet red color with reflections of purple. This young wine has an enormous aromatic profile so typical of this vineyard: dark raspberries, black cherries, earthy minerality and an ever so small hint of mint and game enveloped in toasty oak tones of chocolate and tobacco. This young wine shows enormous potential for the future….the palate-feel is dense and full of ripe fruit flavors with mouthwatering acidity and a sweet veil of silky tannins. With aeration this wine opens up to show layers of generous fruit and floral aromas including violets and roses as well as forest strawberry and dark currant. Drink now through 2017 BOTTLING & RELEASE: Bottling: August 2007 Cases produced: 1,200 Release Date: November 2007 PRIOR VINTAGE REVIEWS: Wine Spectator Review: Supple, velvety and refined, this is a soft-spoken wine that has a lot to say with its delicate iris- and tar-accented black cherry and currant flavors that linger gently on the long, expressive finish. Drink now through 2015. 2004 vintage: Wine Spectator Notes - 2004 BERGSTRÖM Pinot Noir Dundee Hills Bergström Vineyard 2004, 93 points, $75 Lovely, elegant and refined, playing out its raspberry, blackberry and sassafras flavors with other exotic spice notes weaving through the long, long finish. Best from 2008 through 2014. 600 cases made. —H.S.
