Aureole Las Vegas Director of Wine Harley Carbery, Bergström Vineyards “Cumberland Reserve” Willamette Valley, Oregon 2014

Having spent time with Josh Bergstrom this past summer I grew even fonder of him, his family and his wines. We worked together on a not yet released 2 barrel selection being bottled for Mandalay Bay and to be featured at Aureole. The Cumberland Reserve bottling from Bergstrom is also a blend of vineyards and highlights his passion to make great Pinot Noir in the Willamette Valley. The Cumberland Reserve has notes of fresh, juicy fruit, sweet baking spices and a touch of earthiness and very well balanced. These aromas and flavors make it a great choice with all of the varied and celebrated dishes of the holidays. Great to enjoy with family & friends-- I love it with Turkey, Ham & Swiss Meatballs. The wine is approachable and drinkable on its own as well as with food which makes it great for family gatherings around the holidays. Pinot Noir is always a go to for me when I am enjoying the classics such as roast turkey or chicken and all the fixings!
