Winemaker's Notes:

The 1998 La Boheme Pinot Noir has a dense ruby color, and aromas of raspberry and cherry fruit. The wine had delicious fruit flavors, earthy mushroom overtones and a velvety balanced with French oak. It should reach its full potential in the latter half of the next decade.

About Elk Cove Vineyard:

Elk Cove Vineyards is one of Oregon's oldest and most respected wine producers. Founded in 1974 by Pat and Joe Campbell, their focus has always been to produce handcrafted, estate-grown wines that can rival the best in the world. Estate vineyards now cover over 250 acres on five separate sites in the Northern Willamette Valley. Steep south-facing slopes of Willakenzie, Laurelwood and now Jory soil types provide excellent drainage, which are the perfect environment to grow world-class wine grapes. Winemaker Adam Godlee Campbell joined forces with his parents in 1995 and now directs the production of outstanding Pinot Noir, Pinot Gris, Riesling and Pinot Blanc.

The name "Elk Cove" was derived from the Roosevelt Elk, which roamed nearby, and migrated into the valley each spring.
