2012 Bergström Le Pré do Col Vineyard Ribbon Ridge Willamette Valley Pinot Noir

14.1% alc., $52. Vineyard is one mile west of the winery, a 16-acre estate-farmed site owned by the Hill family. Planted in 2006 to Pinot Noir and Chardonnay in marine sedimentary soils in a relatively warm microclimate. · Moderate reddish purple color in the glass. Shy fruit on the nose with plenty of spicy and tobacco-laced oak. Well-structured but not muscular, with a very tasty core of darker fruits including black cherry, plum and blackberry. The finish is most notable because of its boldness and length. The wine still displays a significant oak overlay that should integrate over time. Tasted the following day from a previously opened and re-corked bottle, the oak was less evident. Score: 90. Reviewed July 6, 2014 WINERY » ARTICLE »
