Pale ruby with red hues. This wine teems with sweet red McIntosh apples, freshly picked raspberries, and notes of pink peppercorn and dried roses. An underlying ferrous salinity on the palate contributes complexity to cranberry, Bing cherry, licorice, and clove flavors. It is sweet and succulent at its core and will continue to integrate beautifully over the years. In its youth, there is an undeniable balance between age-worthy tannins and tart acidity.
Named for the road where our family grew up in Portland, Oregon, 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.
Wine Advocate Review:
Medium ruby-purple, the 2021 Pinot Noir Cumberland Reserve offers generous aromas of cranberry sauce, floral potpourri, blood orange and wafts of dried herbs. The medium-bodied palate is youthfully gregarious and focused on generous allspice flavors, although its chalky, tensile frame and long, latent finish suggest this has more to give with additional time in bottle. Anticipated Maturity: 2024-2034
