Gregory Ranch is our 21 acre estate farmed vineyard in the Western coast range hills of the Yamhill-Carlton AVA in the Northwest corner of the Willamette Valley. Gregory Ranch was planted in 2007 and the three Chardonnay blocks are situated in a West facing amphitheater at 460 feet of elevation.
The 2016 Bergström Wines Gregory Ranch Pinot Noir is beautifully colored with a bright dark cherry red. This wine opens with a noble reduction note of flint and then rare woods, incense, sweet baking spices, dark chocolate, oak spices and sweet dark red fruits and tart plum. This wine is softer in structure than the 2015 vintage with a sweet core of fruit and some barrel toast but has a juicy core of balancing acidity that makes this wine quite succulent right now and promises great things for the future.
