2008 Bergström "Shea Vineyard" Yamhill-Carlton Disctrict Willamette Valley Pinot Noir

SKU #1107244 94 points Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The 2008 Pinot Noir Shea Vineyard (Josh Bergstrom is Dick Shea’s largest client although not all the wine goes into the Shea bottling) is medium ruby-colored with more aromatic complexity than the preceding wines. Sandalwood, Asian spices, incense, rose petal, cherry, and raspberry scents lead to a medium to full-bodied (14.3% alcohol), ripe, structured wine with layers of fruit, outstanding grip and volume, and several years of aging potential. (JSM) Inner quote mark (10/2010)

93 points Vinous

Outer quote mark Light ruby. Explosive aromas of blackberry and cherry compote are complicated by notes of potpourri, anise and smoky Indian spices. Brighter on the palate, showing sweet black raspberry and cherry flavors that become spicier with aeration. At once deep and vivacious, finishing with excellent clarity and an echo of fresh red fruits. Josh Bergstrom mentioned that he works with 13 of this vineyard's 135 acres, making him Dick Shea's largest buyer of fruit. (JR) Inner quote mark (7/2010)

92 points Burghound

Outer quote mark Extremely subtle wood frames an expressive nose composed of blue pinot fruit, briar, sandalwood and a hint of spice that can also be found on the delicious, textured and vibrant medium-bodied flavors that are quite dry (in the best sense of the term), all wrapped in a brooding and sappy finish. Patience will be required but it should be worth the wait. *Outstanding* Inner quote mark (10/2010)
