ryansnyder reviewed Bergström Pinot Noir Cumberland Reserve Willamette Valley 2004 on October 15, 2005
In a blind tasting you just might confuse it as a Grenache-Mourvèdre blend from the Southern Rhône, as murky fruits and wet hay dominate the aroma profile. But this Pinot Noir really comes to life on the palate. Coffee, chili, achiote and black pepper give the opulent black cherry and blackberry a robust backdrop. Combine the flavor profile with a supple body and lengthy finish, and you have yourself a real wowser!
