Review:

The most opulent of the new 2012 Bergstrom releases, Gregory Ranch is also the most complete wine. At once lush and bright, it's hugely impressive. Opening with aromas of a summer berry pie a la mode, then gushing with blackberry and black cherry before finishing with cinnamon and anise. This is going to wow you. - Marcus

2011 vintage tasting notes: Dark fruit aromas of black cherry, blackberry and blueberry as well as wild dried mushroom, cinnamon, tobacco and meat notes. Sweet baking spices, characteristic of the Yamhill-Carlton AVA, are also present, lending sweetness and lush textures.

Josh Bergstrom consulted on the purchase and development of the Gregory Ranch vineyard and continues his involvement in the management.

At right, Gregory Ranch Vineyard

2010 Vintage

Gregory Ranch is Bergstrom's newest addition to their collection of single vineyard Pinots. Wow! We all loved the sexy aromas. Wild, creamy blackberries, morel mushrooms, hints of dried herbs and spices. Seamless and silky, Gregory Ranch can be opened and enjoyed now but will be better with 2-3 years of age.

2010 Wine Advocate - 94 points - Licorice, horehound, clove, spruce resin and cassis inform the 2010 Pinot Noir Gregory Ranch Vineyard which represents the first crop from a solitary field blend of clones and selections on a magnificently steep 700-foot sandstone hillside in the rugged northwest Willamette Valley foothills of the Coastal Range which I unexpectedly visited and marveled at before I found out whose it was. And the taste is every bit as marvelous as the site! If its Temperance Hill counterpart acted as though some Riesling or Viognier had been blended-in, here it's as though there were a dosage of Scheurebe contributing vivid pink grapefruit rind and distilled herbal high tones. Hints of iodine and stone add further intrigue while an impression of roasting pan drippings activates the salivary glands. This dense, finely tannic Pinot brings a striking combination of richness, energy, and depth to its long, mouthwateringly savory finish, and should be worth following for at least a dozen years. (Incidentally, in their second harvest, these vines performed shockingly well from barrel in 2011 as well.) - David Schildknecht

2010 Wine Spectator - 93 points - Light and lively, brimming with personality, this plays its raspberry, rhubarb and bergamot tea aromas and flavors deftly, cruising through the long finish with style. Drink now through 2020. - H.S.

Bramble, earth, blackberry, and subtle spice. Underlying ripe berry flavors with a velvet edge, expansive and silky.
