All of Elk Cove's delicate Pinot Noir fruit undergoes the same meticulous vineyard management and gentle handling through our gravity flow system, thus achieving the elegance, texture and luscious quality that are the hallmarks of exquisite Pinot Noirs. From the early pioneering days to now, our Willamette Valley Pinot Noir has remained the foundation of Elk Cove Vineyards. This Pinot Noir is blended from several select vineyard sites comprised of Pommard and Dijon plant material and shows the softest, most approachable drinking style Elk Cove makes.
"Oak-driven with a chocolate cherry scent, this wine mellows and integrates with air, revealing a spicy black cherry core that feels warm, supple and giving. The tannins are round, the finish fresh and lively. For roast salmon. Best Buy."
Wine & Spirits
"Light on its feet and intense in flavor, this red offers tea leaf–accented flavors of cherry and pomegranate, with
nicely buffed tannins. Finishes with richness and deftness."
3.5ish? Woodsy notes give this wine a boost, but it's not very complex--however it is still very enjoyable.
