Full aromas of dark spicy raspberry and Bing cherry fruit are primary with wafts of cedar, leather and warm baking spice that round out the nose. Seamless on the palate with brambly flavours of fresh picked blackberries alongside cedar and chocolate components. A slight savoury note of cured olives adds complexity to this elegant wine.
Our Willamette Valley Pinot Noir is made with fruit from all five of our vineyard sites: Estate, Mount Richmond, Five Mountain, Clay Court and Windhill. We also purchase a small amount of select fruit from other producers who are longtime friends of Elk Cove. These sites are comprised of both Pommard and Dijon plant material, with multiple clones represented.
