Wine Review: This dark ruby offering from Elk Cove was the clear winner of blind tasting of Pinots. This wine opens with a smoky cherry bouquet with notes of tobacco. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, very nicely balanced, and velvety. It displays savory dusty raspberry flavors with hints of cinnamon. There was also infused oak and tobacco as well. The finish is dry and its well managed fine tannins linger nicely. This sophisticated wine is very food friendly and would pair well with the salmon, squab, or osso bucco. Unfortunately, there were only a 153 cases of this gem made. So call the winery and get your hands on this wine soon. It won’t last very long. Enjoy - KWGTP
