Wine Review: In my opinion Adam Campbell makes one of the best Pinot Gris’ to come out of Oregon. Each year his Pinot Gris is always one of my favorites and the 2006 vintage is as well. This light yellow wine opens with a very inviting and pleasant pear like bouquet. On the palate, the wine is round, has no hard edges, is slightly viscous, has very pleasant tropical fruit flavors, and has a touch of sweetness to round it out. The finish is nicely dry and refreshing. This wine would pair perfectly with chicken and broccoli in an rich cream sauce. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: The 2006 Elk Cove Vineyards Pinot Gris starts out with sweet aromatic fruits of the tropics; pineapple, guava and a touch of honeysuckle, hinting of springtime freshness, while also giving crispness on the palate with citrus and grapefruit. Yet true to the Elk Cove Vineyards’ style, there is a rich mouthfeel to give 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.
