Winemaker Notes

Earthy on the nose with forest notes of pine and leather, this silky-smooth wine is subtly floral and many-fruited with raspberry, strawberry, and cassis flavors that lead into a classic, rich Pinot Noir finish.

COMMENTARY: The impressive 2017 Elk Cove Vineyards Mount Richmond Pinot Noir compares favorably to many of Burgundy's top premier crus. TASTING NOTES: This wine is sturdy and well-built. Its ripe tannins provide a beautiful wraparound to the wine. Enjoy it with a juicy, double-thick grilled lamb chop. (Tasted: March 4, 2020, San Francisco, CA)

James Suckling

There’s a deep-set, dark-cherry core that delivers on the nose and palate here with a sleek, fine-boned feel to the tannins that carry very even and long. Neatly detailed. Plenty of fresh and vibrant red cherries. Drink or hold.

WS 93
Wine Spectator
Offers grace and presence, with layered cherry and pomegranate flavors, accented by sassafras tea and spice notes, building tension toward refined tannins. Drink now through 2028.
WE 91
Wine Enthusiast

All of Adam Campbell’s 2017 Pinots are fine-tuned and elegant. Not as ripe as the 2015s, nor as sturdy as the 2016s, they perfectly express the character of this vintage. This vineyard selection offers tight raspberry limned with citrus. Flavors are sharp, and the tannins polished. Another year or two in the bottle should further improve this wine.

RP 91
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

The 2017 Pinot Noir Mount Richmond has a medium ruby-purple color with aromas of cranberry sauce, Italian plum, crushed black cherries, vanilla and touches of charcuterie, dried earth and potpourri. It’s light to medium-bodied and silky with a good core of spicy fruits, a firm, grainy frame and good freshness, finishing long and spicy. Rating: 91+

Elk Cove Vineyards Elk Cove Estate Winery Image
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 nearly 400 acres on six 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 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 roam nearby, and migrate into the valley each spring.

Yamhill-Carlton, characterized by pastoral, rolling hills composed of shallow, quick-draining, ancient marine soil, is ideal for Pinot noir and other cool-climate-loving varieties. It is in the rain shadow of the Coast Range to its west, whose highest point climbs to an altitude of 3,500 feet. Yamhill-Carlton is actually surrounded by mountains on three sides: Chehalem Mountains to the north, the Dundee Hills to the east and the western Coast Range to its west, which, when it lets Pacific air through, serves to cool the region.

Vineyards grow on the ridges surrounding the two small communities of Yamhill and Carlton and cover about 1,200 acres of this 60,000 acre region, which roughly makes a horse-shoe shape on a map.

Thin-skinned, finicky and temperamental, Pinot Noir is also one of the most rewarding grapes to grow and remains a labor of love for some of the greatest vignerons in Burgundy. Fairly adaptable but highly reflective of the environment in which it is grown, Pinot Noir prefers a cool climate and requires low yields to achieve high quality. Outside of France, outstanding examples come from in Oregon, California and throughout specific locations in wine-producing world. Somm Secret—André Tchelistcheff, California’s most influential post-Prohibition winemaker decidedly stayed away from the grape, claiming “God made Cabernet. The Devil made Pinot Noir.”
