Bergstrom has been dutifully making some of the finest, most age-worthy Oregon Pinots for nearly 20 years. Few producers have established such a reputation for consistency of excellence. Fewer yet have racked up the impressive accolades that Bergstrom has: nearly every wine scores 90+ in all the major publications with many selections fetching eye-opening scores of 95+ points! It comes down to a passion for sustainable agriculture, a focus on the details, and employing state of the art techniques in the cellar which extract the maximum potential from the excellent fruit they work with.
The Shea Vineyard sits on a warm south-facing hillside in the Yamhill-Carlton District, and is a vineyard well known for its highly structured an massively powerful Pinots. As this Pinot has aged, it has brought forth gobs of thick, syrupy black fruits, leather and tobacco components, and the firm tannins have become silky to the point of utter perfection. This is a stunner and a crowd pleaser. Nab it while you can!
