"Brilliant red. Fragrant, spice-accented red berries, blood orange and candied rose on the incisive nose. Bright, nervy and focused on the palate, offering intense raspberry and bitter cherry flavors that spread out and become sweeter with air. Juicy and seamless in texture, finishing with powerful mineral thrust and resonating floral and red berry notes. Shows surprising vivacity for the year - I'd have guessed that this was a 2013."
Silice (pronounced “sea-lease”) is French for silica, which is a shiny, quartz rock found in the sandy, beach soils of the Chehalem
Mountains AVA. Sitting in the 21 acres of vineyard land contiguous to the winery, these bright, reflective oceanic soils produce
Bergström’s most concentrated, spicy and fruit-forward Pinot Noir. The vines are now over 15-years-old and express themselves
in a tremendous way.
