Bergström Wines
Sigrid Chardonnay, Willamette Valley — 2017

The Wine Advocate
91

“The 2017 Chardonnay Sigrid is very reductive on the nose, which could be polarizing. The medium-bodied palate is much more open at this stage, offering a deep core of apple fruit and soft, tertiary character. Its concentration and gently grippy texture are balanced by bright acidity, and it has a long, savory finish. It will benefit from a long decant.”

Vinous

"With a garnet hue, it features blackberry and herb aromas, with subtle cherry notes. Dry and plush on the palate, it leaves a balanced and lingering impression with an expressive final whiff."

Les Templiers Rosé, AOP Côtes de Provence — 2023

The Tasting Panel
92

“Unusually generous for Provençal Rosé, this shows a soft bouquet at the outset, but then very ripe flavors recalling red berries. Fully medium-bodied, this is not in the wispy style that many wine lovers now associate with Provence Rosé. I once overheard someone bemoan that style by quipping, “I’d like some wine in my wine,” and that person would be very pleased by this release.”

"Plump and polished, showing multilayered raspberry and guava flavors laced with smoked meat and cracked pepper notes as this builds richness and tension toward refined tannins."

Chardonnay, Ritchie Vineyard, Russian River Valley — 2021

Jeb Dunnuck
100

“It’s a stunner in the glass, with loads of layered depth and complexity, and it checks a ton of boxes. The nose opens to luxurious aromas of white peach, citrus blossoms, marzipan, wet stone minerality, and citrus oils. Full-bodied, the palate gains fantastic glycerol richness while staying light on its feet, with seamless acidity and a long finish. Its oak spice frames the wine with precision, giving it a refined, polished feel and offering a Grand Cru-esque sensibility.”

Pinot Noir, Kanzler Vineyard, Russian River Valley — 2021

Jeb Dunnuck
97

“Coming exclusively from the older plantings of the vineyard, the deep ruby/magenta 2021 Pinot Noir Kanzler Vineyard saw 20% whole cluster in fermentation. In the glass, it boasts a gorgeous perfume of lavender, black raspberries, graphite, and elegant high-toned spices that frame the wine beautifully. Medium-bodied, it has an expansive feel throughout the palate, with lovely balance, a seamless feel, even acidity, ripe tannins, and a long finish. It’s gorgeous all the way through.”

“It offers a fantastic aromatic profile on the nose with layered, rich notes of wild mixed berries, brambly herbs, pine, violets, and citrus oils. While it’s medium-bodied, it offers great depth and has a chiseled structure with ripe tannins, coiled tension, and lasting notes of brambly spice on the long finish.”

Chardonnay, El Diablo Vineyard, Russian River Valley – 2021

Jeb Dunnuck
96

“In the glass, it takes on a lovely floral perfume of fresh pear, lemon oils, flint, and honeysuckle. It offers well-balanced richness, with a suggestion of decadence, and has rounded viscosity while retaining a fresh spine of acidity that propels the wine through the palate, with lasting notes of almond on the finish.”

Chardonnay, Russian River Valley — 2021

Jeb Dunnuck
94

“In the glass, it pours a bright straw/green hue and shows off a bit riper profile than those of the Ferren wines, taking on ripe aromas of wet stones, delicate baking spices, fresh peach, and lemon candies. Medium to full-bodied and approachable, with a wide drinking window, it has a lovely, rounded texture and a weightless feel. It’s long on the palate and an outstanding entry to the range.”

Pago del Cielo Reserva, DO Ribera del Duero — 2019

92

"A very well-balanced Ribera del Duero that shows spiced plums, strawberries, cherries and touches of white pepper and chocolate. Juicy and pretty crunchy on the palate, with a medium to full body and fine-grained tannins. A juicy, layered finish persists in a subtle manner.”

Aton Pinot Noir Riserva, Alto Adige DOC — 2019

Wine Spectator
94

“A graceful red, with a sense of poise, good concentration and expression, this shows fine integration between its sculpted tannins and bright acidity and the detailed range of black raspberry and cherry fruit flavors, backed by accents of singed orange peel and licorice and notes of minerally tar and iron. Long and silky through the spice- and herb-laced finish.”

Amarone della Valpolicella DOCG — 2016

Wine Spectator
95

“Dark and dense, this reveals itself slowly, teasing fragrant accents of tarry smoke, graphite, coffee liqueur and warm spices before flavors of blackberry paste, plum cake, stemmy herbs and cocoa powder begin to unfurl. This is tightly meshed, with a core of grippy tannins creating a compact feel today.”

Valpolicella Superiore DOC — 2018

Wine Spectator

“A gorgeous nose of rosemary, leather, cocoa powder and milled pepper is a fragrant thread winding through this rich red. Dense, fine-grained tannins support flavors of baked black cherry and blackberry paste, loamy earth, graphite and Earl Grey tea leaf. Long and plush, with the detailed profile echoing on the finish.”

Pietra Marina, Etna Bianco DOC Superiore — 2019

Wine Spectator

“A structured white, offering rapier-like acidity tightly meshed with flavors of crunchy white peach, green almond, crushed pine, lemon wax and petrol. There's good tension and focus; this should open nicely with short-term cellaring.”

Ludwig Pinot Nero, Alto Adige DOC — 2021

Wine Spectator
92

"Tarry smoke, sweet spice, game and grilled herb notes offer a fragrant, savory underpinning for flavors of baked black cherry and black currant fruit, licorice and cocoa powder. Fresh and focused; though only medium-bodied in weight, this shows length and concentration, with light, taut tannins trimming the finish."

Kristallberg Pinot Bianco, Alto Adige DOC — 2022

Wine Spectator
92

"A firm spine of sleek acidity structures this linear-driven version, with aromas and flavors of plumped white cherry, poached pear, tangerine peel, salted Marcona almond and dried mint revealing themselves gradually as they expand on the palate and through the minerally finish. Sip this slowly, pair it with food or cellar it in the short term to experience this complex and layered white."
