#79 Wine Spectator Top 100 of 2010
The 2009 Elk Cove Vineyards Pinot Gris starts out with sweet and unctuous aromatics while showing crispness on the palate with citrus and grapefruit. True to Elk Cove Vineyards' style, a rich mouthfeel leads to a full and satisfying balanced finish. Drink this lovely white wine as an aperitif or with a variety of food pairings from salmon and main-course salads to Asian and Thai influenced dishes.
Fruity & Smooth
Among pinot gris, the 2009 Elk Cove is in a class by itself. Intense fruit, especially pear, explodes on the palate. The fruit is so pronounced in this wine that I thought it had been supplemented when I first tried it.
