Winemaker Notes

Raspberry and dark cherry lead into woodsy aromas of mushroom, violet and thyme. Full and very fruit-forward, the wine finishes long with cardamom and warm baking spices. To make Elk Cove Willamette Valley Pinot Noir, fruit from each vineyard block is fermented separately in small, temperature controlled steel tanks, hand punched down twice daily, and barreled in french oak barrels. After 10 months of aging in 20% new oak, the wine Elk Cove chooses for the Willamette Valley Pinot Noir is carefully blended to produce the most approachable, well-balanced Pinot Noir they make.

JS 91
James Suckling
This has a very attractively fragrant and perfumed nose with roses, red cherries and berry pastry. The palate has good intensity and depth with very supple, sweet red cherries taking center stage.
TP 91
Tasting Panel
Deep ruby color, bright cherry nose; ripe cherry, juicy style, crisp, racy and fresh; long and tangy.
WE 90
Wine Enthusiast
Here is a textbook example of Willamette Valley Pinot Noir. Sturdy and dark-fruited, it's a reasonably substantial wine, well balanced and showing light barrel influences of toast, coffee and smoke. Nothing too fancy, but varietally true.

Elk Cove Vineyards, Oregon
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.

Home of some of the planet’s most amazingly elegant and expressive Pinot noir, the Willamette Valley is a pastoral, mixed landscape of green, bucolic rolling hills, dramatic forestlands and small, independent, friendly wine growers. As a leader in environmental stewardship, the valley has some of the nation’s most protective land use policies, with two-thirds of its vineyards farmed sustainably and over half, organically. While the valley claims a cool, continental climate, and is heavily influenced by the cold, moist winds of the Pacific Ocean, its warm and dry summers allow for the steady, even ripening of Pinot noir.

The potential of Willamette Valley Pinot noir continues to attract the investment of serious growers and winemakers both locally and from abroad, as naturally the finished wines bring accolades from professionals and enthusiasts. With a range of styles from delicate dried cherry, raspberry and hibiscus to stronger notes of truffle, mocha, plum and spice, a fine Willamette Valley Pinot noir is a perfect expression of both character and grace.
