This is definitely a richer, creamier style of Chardonnay than I expected. From a cooler climate, I was thinking it would be much more mineral-driven. And it does have that aspect, but the biscuit and hazelnut aromas and creamy textures dominate, though I was pleased by the acidity that backed it up. Not too heavy by any means, I thought it balanced rich flavors and textures with some good bright fruit and acidity. A good Chardonnay for some creamy sauces!
This is what '07 is known for: balance of fruit and structure. This wine definitely displays that. Lots of dark fruit up front, backed by a hint of cedar. Good, firm tannins, round mouthfeel and an excellent finish show these are ready for drinking now OR evolving for a few more years. One I'd love with a juicy steak, lamb or other hearty meal.
You'd never know this Chardonnay saw oak, except for the lovely mouthfeel. No malo on this wine leads to fresh stone fruits (apple, pear), "crunchy" acidity, excellent finish. A very crisp and bright Chardonnay - one that reminds you what the grape is all about.
I love this wine - it is everything I love in Cabernet. Good, rich fruit, cedar, dried savory herbs and a killer structure. Not over the top, not one that I'd throw in the cellar for a long period of time, but this has potential to evolve over the next 5 years or so. Tasting delicious now, with a lovely balance. Something I'd like with a pork roast or even a steak - not too heavy, so not for heavy foods, but a great all around Cab.
This is what I'd term a lighter-bodied Pinot Noir. It's bright & fresh red fruits are backed by a pleasing spice. Lots of zesty acidity, but with a slight savory texture. Good balance, great food wine - a go-to for drinking good red in hot weather.
So delicious! Granted, it's no Burgundy, but it is fantastically balanced and smooth. Wonderful fruit, mellow oak and just a lovely finish. If you like GOOD Chardonnay, this is a wine for you.
I love half-bottle options, particularly when they are good! This is an excellent Champagne- dry and crisp, mineral and citrus, but with that typical yeasty note that makes it fill the nose and mouth. Great finish, too. Excellent acidity for pairing with food.
Aromas of ripe peach and tropical fruit; palate offers the same, backed by what I call zippy acidity - it almost dances in your mouth. Great balance, represents Oregon Pinot Gris quite well.
Elk Cove Pinot Gris is exactly what I'm looking for in Oregon PG - it matches lively acidity with rich mouthfeel. Elk Cove has both in perfect preportion - a smooth, silky, rich texture of sweet ripe fruits with that zing of acid to make it refreshing. Well done.
On the lighter bodied style of Rose bubblies, with delicate fruit and wonderfully crisp acidity. Well-balanced, great finish, super refreshing. Lovely as an aperitif, with a light spring or summer lunch or with some take-out chinese or thai!
