Review:

Beautifully round, bold and dark, all within the context of graceful Pinot noir. Blackberry, black cherry, violet, vibrantly intense and lush. The finish is like biting into a mouthful of summer blackberries with shavings of dark cocoa. I'm not allowed to write what I wrote in my tasting notebook...feel free to ask. The most universally appealing Pinot noir that Erin Nuccio has made. - Marcus

2011 vintage notes: our second year working with this relatively young vineyard in the heart of the Eola-Amity Hills. Our 4 favorite barrels from the vintage were bottled separately. Dark cherry, deep raspberry and a vivacity that is so distinct to the Eola-Amity Hills. 100 cases produced. - the winery

2010 Vintage Tasting notes:

We spent a week tasting this and pouring it in the shop - it received praise from customers and winemakers alike. The Bjornson is drinking great right now and it has plenty of stuffing to age for 3-4 years.

First time Erin has made a single vineyard Pinot from this vineyard. 75 case production.

From a small vineyard contiguous with and above the famous Seven Springs Vineyard (Evening Land Vineyards.) The grapes were planted 7-8 years ago.

Erin describes the wine: "This is the biggest of the four new Pinots. I was able to get optimal ripeness, textbook perfect. I'd describe the character of the wine as having plumpness, richness, and a voluptuous quality. In contrast to the purity of the Cancilla, the Bjornson is briary - dark fruits - cassis, raspberry, blackberry. It's bold - it's not a subtle wine. The finish is full, round, with more tannins than the Cancilla."

"The Bjornson is drinking beautifully now and can age for 3-5 years."
