Our 14th vintage of the Cumberland Reserve Pinot Noir is a stunning example of what biodynamic farming and estate blending can achieve in the Willamette Valley. This is our finest assemblage of our five estate vineyards (primarily from the Silice and Le Pré du Col Vineyards with small amounts of Bergström Vineyard, Winery Block, and Gregory Ranch Vineyard.) Josh Bergström refers to the Cumberland Reserve Pinot Noir as his “business card” Pinot Noir as it showcases the Bergström style, his take on a vintage, a philosophical and olfactory example of what great Oregon Pinot Noir from the Willamette Valley should taste like. “Oregon Pinot Noir should always showcase the triumvirate of fresh fruit, sweet baking spice characters from the soil, and a fresh forest floor, loamy, earthiness.” This is the Cumberland Reserve Pinot Noir that he has always been striving for.
