2013 Bergström "Le Pre Du Col" Ribbon Ridge Pinot Noir

SKU #1227668 95 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark *Hot Wines* Supple, seductive and distinctive, with pure blueberry fruit, shaded with white pepper, pear skin and floral character that dances into a long and deftly balanced finish. Has presence and intensity without extra weight. Drink now through 2023. Inner quote mark (10/2015)

94 points Wine Enthusiast

Outer quote mark *Editors' Choice" Grapes from this tiny AVA frequently deliver that something extra that catapults Pinot into a higher dimension. Here, solid cherry and berry tones bear almost indefinable traces of iron, mineral and sweet hay. Delicious already, this should continue to improve through 2020. Inner quote mark (7/2015)

92 points Vinous

Outer quote mark Lurid red. Powerful, spice-tinged red berry and floral pastille scents are complemented by suggestions of cola and star anise. Rich, seamless and silky, with sappy red and dark berry flavors staining the palate. Uncommonly rich for the vintage, showing no rough edges and finishing gently tannic and long, with a suave rose note. Josh Bergstrom told me that at this point in his career he has worked with 85 different vineyards in Oregon. He has also consulted to a number of different projects in the area and admits that he realized not long ago that he wanted to narrow things down dramatically, "focusing on my own family vineyards and just a handful of others and concentrating winemaking efforts on my own winery." He has been an interesting winemaker to follow as Bergstrom was making, by his own admission, "big statement wines that could be over-the-top" in his early days. Over the last decade there has been a steady progression toward wines that "are balanced and about finesse, not just richness for its own sake," and this winery has now emerged as one of the Willamette Valley's best sources for wines in that style. Inner quote mark (7/2015)
