Bergstrom Wines is a family owned and operated artisan producer of Pinot Noir and Chardonnay which was started in 1999 by Dr. John and Karen Bergstrom, with the help of their son Josh Bergstrom and his wife Caroline. Josh is general manager, vineyard manager and winemaker and pulls his expertise from his education in Burgundy, France and his 14 years experience making wines in Oregon's Northern Willamette Valley. Bergstrom focuses on hand crafting small lots of wines from their fice estate vineyards carefully chosen from fice of Oregon's six wine growing appellations. All estate acreage is farmed biodynamically and all wines express the wonderful diversity of Oregon's many great terroirs.

"Two thousand fifteen is one of the greatest Oregon vintages for a simple reason: the wines have both richness and energy," Josh Bergstrom told me. While he also ranks 2014 as among the best years in the state's winemaking history, "the '15s have freshness and delineation, plus they'll probably be delicious all their lives, without going through much of a closed stage." There's very little new oak in play here these days, a move that Bergstrom says has been a big part of his progress "away from the statement wines that a young guy feels like he has to make" and toward ones that he hopes "make you think rather than blow you away." By a good stretch, this is the strongest set of wines I have experienced here since my first visit back in 2005. From Oregon Pushes the Quality Needle for Pinot (Jan 2018) by Josh Raynolds

Tasting Notes: Wine Advocate 92 points- Pale to medium ruby purple, the 2015 Pinot Noir Silice Vineyard has an animal/meaty nose with savory notes of baking bread and Marmite over a core of kirsch, bay leaves, pepper, black raspberries and red currant preserves. Medium to full bodied, it has a firm frame of chewy tannins and just enough freshness to support the muscular fruit, finishing long..August/2017

Vinous 95 points- Limpid ruby. Expansive raspberry preserve, cherry pie, floral pastille and incense aromas, along with a vibrant mineral quality. Juicy, vibrant and smooth on the palate, offering sappy, alluringly sweet red and dark berry and Asian spice flavors that tighten up slowly on the back half. Shows superb depth and clarity; there are no rough edges to be found. Refuses to let go on the finish, which features harmonious tannins and an array of exotic spice and floral notes..January/2018
