2016 Bergström "Shea Vineyard" Yamhill-Carlton Pinot Noir

SKU #1370155 93 points Wine & Spirits

Outer quote mark Frequently the darkest and ripest of Bergström’s portfolio, Shea in its best iterations has a mulled-spice depth to its layers of bright and dark fruit. This one doesn’t disappoint: The intensity arises from a feel of tannins inking your inner cheeks the way grape skins stain your fingers when you squeeze them. And the finish is marvelously spicy, tobacco-laced, calling for something complex, like venison stew. Inner quote mark (10/2018)

93 points Wine Enthusiast

Outer quote mark Possibly the most sought-after vineyard in the Willamette Valley. Shea fruit shines everywhere. This example is delineated with lively aromas of roses and raspberries. A taut, earthy flavor of beetroot runs through the palate, with a kiss of cinnamon coming up in the finish. This wine should continue to improve over many years. Drink 2020–2030. *Cellar Selection* (PG) Inner quote mark (12/2018)

93 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark Expressive, with silky complexity offering vibrant black cherry, orange peel and spice box flavors that gain depth and richness toward polished tannins. Drink now through 2025. (TF) Inner quote mark (10/2018)

91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The 2016 Pinot Noir Shea Vineyard is pale to medium ruby-purple in color with an open, deep nose of bramble berry fruit, violet and potpourri with notes of forest floor and herbs. Medium to full-bodied, it fills the mouth with ripe black fruits, with a firm frame of grainy tannins and great freshness, herbal and earth flavors coming through on the long, energetic finish. (EB) Inner quote mark (8/2018)
