Josh Bergström’s Notes

Pale violet with a red ruby hue. Aromatically full of spice, freshly felled cedar trees, iron, violets, and orange bitters. This pristine wine represents the full potential of the Bergström Vineyard. Reminiscent of sitting by a cherrywood fire with a loganberry tart sprinkled with cinnamon and demerara sugar. The flavors dance harmoniously with fresh cut sage and mint interwoven amongst blue fruits and wood spice. A lasting finish is balanced with bright acidity and tannin integrated from stem and oak. A perfect example of walking the line between ethereal and powerful.
