Bergström Silice Pinot Noir 2014
Wine EnthusiastCellar Selection. This re-named vineyard was formerly bottled as deLancellotti. You'll find striking minerality underscoring chunky black fruits. Accents of citrus and graphite comingle, with exceptional midpalate concentration. This is a wine to cellar, though it is already quite enjoyable. Drink now through 2030.
Wine SpectatorPeppery tannins drape around a supple core of blueberry, dark plum and spice flavors, hints of mineral and floral informing the medium-weight finish, which lingers easily. Best from 2018 through 2022. 700 cases made.
Wine AdvocateThe 2014 Pinot Noir Silice Vineyard had a medium ruby-purple color and is scented of fertile loam, game, sautéed herbs and tree bark over a core of warm cranberries, pomegranate and raspberries. Medium-bodied with a very lively backbone, it has a good amount of chewy tannins supporting the expressive fruit, finishing with an herbal lift.
