While it may not reach the same heights as Burgundy's Pinot Noirs, Oregon's have certainly made a mark for themselves. Richer and denser than red Burgundy, Oregon's wines have tended to be complex and elegant if more accessible. Given time, Oregon's 45 years of experience with Pinot Noir pales in comparison with the centuries Burgundians have had to hone their craft, I've no doubt that Oregon will produce wine of Grand Cru quality.
One of the producers at the forefront of this effort is Bergstrom Cellars, particularly with the rich and meaty De Lancellotti Cru. Tannic and dense for Pinot Noir, the De Lancellotti Cru packs in deep and ripe, yet fresh flavors of cherry and raspberry fruit, backed up with exotic spice notes and sweet toasty oak. Give this a few years to blossom and watch it develop for a decade.
