Sigrid Chardonnay, Willamette Valley — 2021

Vinous
95

"'The 2021 Chardonnay Sigrid opens with a savory bouquet, blending incense, ginger, dusty florals and hints of fleshly sliced peach. This is a model of refinement, silky and sapid with tactile mineral tones offsetting its ripe white pit fruits as a core of stimulating acidity maintains marvelous freshness. There's so much complexity here, as the 2021 finishes long, with a lingering salinity perfectly balanced by a tinge of candied citrus and hints of young kiwi."

Le Pré du Col Pinot Noir, Ribbon Ridge — 2021

Vinous
93+

"The 2021 Pinot Noir Le Pré du Col is spicy and airy with a perfumed blend of dusty dried flowers, ground ginger and wild strawberries. This mixes savory and sweet with a cascade of violets and lavender over a stream of brisk acidity. It casts tangy red fruits across the palate, offset by a tinge of sour citrus. Only lightly tannic yet full of tension, Le Pré du Col finishes long and potent with an air of inner florals and hints of foreign spice. While its structural footprint doesn't have as much impact, the 2021 should mature beautifully on its balance alone."

Old Stones Chardonnay, Willamette Valley — 2021

Vinous
92

"The 2021 Chardonnay Old Stones wafts up with a spicy, citrus-driven bouquet of lemon oils, hints of mint and crisp green apple. Luxuriously smooth with a pleasant inner sweetness, it flows across the palate with seductively ripe orchard fruits and sweet spices. It concludes with incredible length and potency, yet amazingly fresh with a lingering sapid fruit concentration. For all of the ripeness in this glass, the 2021 finishes with zero grams of residual sugar. What a darling."

Bergström Vineyard Pinot Noir, Dundee Hills — 2021

Vinous
96

"The 2021 Pinot Noir The Bergström Vineyard is dark and brooding, enticing with a meaty blend of savory black cherry and cedar shavings complicated by flowery underbrush and a lifting hint of camphor. This is texturally thrilling, with ripe wild berry fruit depths guided by brisk acidity, taking on a saline edge and hints of licorice toward the close. It's potent and long with gritty tannins. A concentration of tart blackberry and spice pinch at the cheeks, yet the mouth is left watering for more as a salty flourish carries on."

Silice Pinot Noir, Chehalem Mountains — 2021

Vinous
94

"The 2021 Pinot Noir Silice lifts from the glass, delicate and wonderfully fresh, casting dusty dried flowers and hints of star anise, cinnamon, and wild strawberries to form its darkly alluring bouquet. Cool-toned and wickedly fresh, it cascades across the palate with crunchy wild berries propelled by zesty acidity as salty florals come forward. It finishes tannic, yet sweet and round, tapering off quickly to leave touches of licorice and inner rose."

La Spirale Pinot Noir, Ribbon Ridge — 2021

Vinous
94

"The 2021 Pinot Noir La Spirale is perfumed to the max, with an array of violets and roses evolving into delicate black cherry in an air of chalk dust and sweet smoke. Lifted and refined with cooling acidity, the 2021 doesn't miss a beat, coming across both finessed yet also sapid with slowly saturating masses of ripe dark red fruits. This cakes the palate with primary concentration and minerals, lingering impossibly long and structured yet perfectly fresh. There's tremendous cellar potential here."

Cumberland Reserve Pinot Noir — 2021

Vinous
92

"The 2021 Pinot Noir Reserve Cumberland blossoms in the glass with dusty blackberry and rose petals complicated by hints of incense and clove. Succulent and round with ripe red fruit depths and inner florals. It takes on a chalky minerality as juicy acidity maintains an energetic feel. Hints of sour citrus tug at the senses as the 2021 finishes fresh and crisp, leaving gently staining silty tannins. The balance here is outstanding."

Silice Pinot Noir, Chehalem Mountains — 2021

Decanter
96

“Elegance is personified in this bottling of Bergström's renowned Silice. Beautiful bright fruit aromas are further framed by touches of tomato leaf, pine bough and mossy forest floor. The palate is marked by fleshy red raspberries, early season blackberry and fine grain tannin that provides a structure that shows this wine's longevity.”

“Brooding, with an appealing earthy, forest floor accent to the blueberry and dusky spice flavors as this builds tension and density toward medium-grained tannins.

“Fresh and crunchy pinot with aromas of fresh strawberries, peppercorns, green olives, freshly turned soil and rosemary stems. Lovely silky texture, yet firm too, with tight-grained tannins and bright acidity. Delicious balance of sweet fruit and savory earthiness.”

“Scents of sassafras and leaf-litter, the fruit scant. Texturally, it was all in place, and the fruit broke through with air—saturated red cherry, pretty and succulent and mouth-filling.”

“Seems to teem with fruit, sumptuous, generous and comfortable. Scents of crushed rose petals and cranberry give lift to otherwise succulent fruit, with a fine, saline minerality that tethers the richness and keeps the wine on a straight course.”

Silice Pinot Noir, Chehalem Mountains — 2021

Wine & Spirits
95 Points

“The first impression of this stunning red is of brilliant red raspberry fruit, as pure as a sunbeam. Yet an inky depth plays counterpoint, rumbling beneath, dark and a bit spicy, grounding the fruit with tannins from the silica-based soils of Bergström’s estate vineyard. The tension between these two elements is gorgeous, the fruit saturating and full, and yet it has an energy and drive giving the texture a lifted, graceful feel.”

Bergström Vineyard Pinot Noir, Dundee Hills — 2021

Wine & Spirits
94 Points

“The Bergström family’s first vineyard is now 24 years old, and in the glass you can almost taste the health of the vines—in the fruit’s exuberant expression, its persistent freshness, and the volcanic lift of its texture. Whole-clusters in the fermentation have given the fruit a floral, slightly licorice-scented back note, lending complexity and layering. The texture is tensile and firm, the wine diaphanous in its fruit expression. For tea-smoked duck.”

“This is bright and succulent with redcurrants and cranberries with hints of thyme, some nutmeg and fragrant blue flowers. Some flinty minerality, too. It is medium- to full-bodied with impressive tension, freshly cut cherries and blueberries, and tangy, citrus-like acidity. It is vibrant and fresh with notes of spicy herbs to close.”

“Generous aromas of cranberry sauce, floral potpourri, blood orange and wafts of dried herbs. The medium-bodied palate is youthfully gregarious & focused on generous allspice flavors.”
