Bergström, Cumberland Reserve Pinot Noir 2015, Willamette Valley, Oregon
Tasting Note: A concentrated pinot noir with depth of flavor and character.
Medium-intensity purple in color, this wine has an aromatic nose of red cherry and raspberry.
On the palate the dry, medium-plus-bodied pinot noir has just-ripened black fruit flavors supported by medium acidity and completing with a medium-plus finish.
Bottle Note: Named for the road where our family grew up in Portland, our Cumberland Reserve represents a blend of some of the finest barrels from our five estate-farmed vineyards, all carefully combined to showcase Oregon pinot noir at its best. Our Cumberland Reserve is the epitome of the Bergström style – the expression of a unique vintage’s character combined with the perfect marriage of spice, mineral and fresh fruit flavors from five different AVAs that we believe, as a blend, best defines Oregon pinot noir.
