Wine Review: This dark ruby colored Pinot Noir from Elk Cove opens with a musty boysenberry bouquet with hints of strawberry. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, balanced, and shows mild fruit forward flavors. The flavor profile is a very tasty mild red currant with notes of black raspberry and a hint of oak. The finish is dry and its fine tannins are pleasant. This Pinot is elegant in style and would pair perfect with grilled salmon. Enjoy – Ken

Winemaker Notes: 2009 was a vintage of abundance. Ideal springtime weather led to a hot summer, which gave us a beautiful, uniform and potentially prolific crop. So, vintage 2009 may be remembered as one of those rare combinations of excellent quality and quantity, with the wines showing flash.
