Bergstrom Cumberland Reserve Pinot Noir 2019
Named for the road where the family grew up in Portland, Oregon, the Cumberland Reserve represents a blend of some of the finest barrels from our five estate-farmed vineyards, all carefully combined to showcase Oregon Pinot Noir at its best. The Cumberland Reserve is the epitome of the Bergström style-the expression of a unique vintage’s character combined with the perfect marriage of spice, mineral, and fresh fruit flavors.
Bright, carbonic, candied fruit notes with floral pastilles of violets and roses, savory thyme, lavender, and sweet tarragon make for a beautifully complex bouquet on the 2019 Cumberland Reserve Pinot Noir. The core flavors are ripe but vibrantly crunchy Hood strawberries, black raspberries, red beets, and cherries with a distinct iron mineral-laden structure. This wine is bright and bursting with succulent juicy flavors and mouthwatering acidity, but also has a fine-knit tannic mineral frame and a maritime salinity that make this both very fun and very serious at the same time.
