Wine Review: We tried this Pinot at this year’s Boston Wine Expo. We found this translucent dark red wine opens with a nice strawberry bouquet. On the palate, this wine is round, balanced, easy going, and not overly complex. The finish is dry, tingly and has fine tannins that linger for a bit. This wine would pair very nicely with gourmet grilled Angus burgers with sautéed mushrooms and Swiss cheese. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: From the early pioneering days to now, our Willamette Valley Pinot Noir has remained the foundation of Elk Cove Vineyards. This Pinot Noir is blended from several select vineyard sites comprised of Pommard and Dijon plant material and shows the softest, most approachable drinking style Elk Cove makes.
