Bergstrom Silice Pinot Noir 2013
Wine EnthusiastIntensely fragrant from the moment the cork is pulled, this exceptional wine (formerly bottled as de Lancellotti vineyard) bursts out of the glass with sweet baking spices, sandalwood and tart red fruits. The structure and balance, along with its impressive concentration and length, mark this as a wine to cellar. Drink now through 2030.
Wine SpectatorFirm in texture, this lithe bundle of black cherry, raspberry, espresso and smoke flavors comes together with integrity on the harmonious finish. Needs time to soften the tannins. Best from 2018 through 2023. 1,600 cases made.
Wine AdvocateThe 2013 Silice Vineyard Pinot Noir comes from vines grown on silica soils, as the name implies; it is a warm site that requires canopy management. It has a perfumed bouquet with dark berry fruit, white flowers and subtle licorice notes that open nicely in the glass. The palate is medium-bodied with sappy red berry fruit. It has a soft opening, moderate depth in the mouth, that warmth before the rains coming through and delivering quite a rounded, red berry, easy-going finish that should offer several years of drinking pleasure.
