Bergstrom Pinot Noir Shea Vineyard 2014
VM94: "Brilliant ruby. Ripe cherry and black raspberry aromas are complicated by floral oil and cola nuances. Sappy and expansive on entry, then tighter in the midpalate, offering palate-staining red and dark berry flavors that turn sweeter on the back half. Shows a sexy floral pastille note on the strikingly long, penetrating finish, which is framed by silky, even tannins. The blend of richness and vivacity here is quite impressive."
Shea Vineyard, Willamette Valley’s most famous vineyard, sits on ancient marine seabeds that were uplifted by volcanic ash millions of years ago. Bergström Wines purchases fruit from six dedicated, distinct clonal blocks on the East Hill of Shea Vineyard. Their 2014 Pinot Noir is loaded with red fruit and dusty tannins. Rich and vivacious with a strikingly long finish.
