2006 Lost Highway Project Willamette Valley Pinot Noir

14.5% alc, 150 cases, $55. A special release from Bergström Wines sourced from three vineyards: Nysa 1/3, Bergström 1/3, and de Lancellotti 1/3. Produced in conjunction with Vine Street Imports (VSI), an importer of fine wine that collaborates with winemakers to create original and exclusive bottlings with labels designed by internationally acclaimed artists. Beginning in 2002, a unique wine has been released each year by VSI. · Very dark reddish-purple color. Inviting dark themed nose of blackberry jam, chocolate and mocha. Plush, rich, and darkly fruited with subtle oak and forest floor accents. A powerful wine that needs time to assimilate the substantial tannins, but it will always be a glamazon.
