No doubt, the finest jewel in the Bergström crown is the Bergström Vineyard- our first vineyard planted in 1999 in the Dundee Hills AVA. These volcanic hillsides yield wines that often show a darker side as well as a ferrous mineral quality that speaks of the deep and ancient lava flows from which the vines’ roots pull minerals and nutrients. The 2012 Bergström Vineyard Pinot Noir is dark ruby in color with deep purple and violet tints. This wine has complex aromas ranging from intense black cherry and dark raspberry to smoked meat, dark chocolate, bacon fat, black pepper and minty spice. While powerful and impressive now, the undertones of roses and sweet violets and the telltale elegance of the Bergström Vineyard shine through and promise years of great drinking opportunities. This is our most cellar-worthy Pinot Noir, which slowly unfolds like a peacock’s tail to deliver long-term drinking pleasure. Enjoy the Bergström Vineyard Pinot Noir with duck and other game, mushroom dishes, stews and lean cuts of steak such as filet mignon. Drink 2015-2030
