Bergstrom Cumberland Reserve 2019 (USA: OR - Willamette Valley) (ID# 3814)

Name Bergstrom Cumberland Reserve 2019 (ID# 3814)
Varietal Pinot Noir
Region USA: OR - Willamette Valley
Notes "A barrel blend, the 2019 Pinot Noir Cumberland Reserve has a medium ruby-purple color and opens with some flinty tones over cranberries, bitter citrus and amaro aromas. Grainy and fresh, the medium-bodied palate offers crunchy fruits and fine earthy accents, finishing long, uplifted and spicy." (Wine Advocate)

Additional Notes

"Musky cherry and red currant aromas, along with hints of botanical herbs and allspice. Gently chewy and focused on the palate, offering bitter cherry, red berry, spicecake and licorice flavors that turn sweeter through the back half. Dusty tannins add shape and grip to the long, spicy finish, which leaves cherry pit and baking spice notes behind." (Josh Raynolds, Vinous) "Generous and structured, with savory raspberry, tarragon and black tea flavors that build tension toward refined tannins. Drink now through 2030. 7,176 cases made." (Wine Spectator) "Labeled reserve this is actually an entry-level Pinto for the expansive Bergström lineup. It's a substantial effort that surely includes grapes from a number of first-class sites. It's still young and stiffly tannic, but packed with well-ripened fruit flavors of blackberry and black cherry. The tannins kick in and add a firm frame with baking spices and an inviting herbal component around the finish." (Wine Enthusiast)
