In a blind tasting of 81 Pinot Gris from Oregon and Washington, our 2013 came in first. Here’s the review:
Outstanding: Elk Cove Vineyards 2013 Pinot Gris, Willamette Valley
“Second-generation winemaker Adam Campbell is the master of Pinot Gris, as he consistently earns top scores vintage after vintage. This is no exception, earning the top spot in our judging. It opens with aromas of apple, pear and a touch of pineapple, followed by hints of jasmine and mint tea. The palate is bursting with flavors of orchard fruit and minerality, all backed with crisp, mouthwatering acidity. A stunning wine.” – Andy Perdue
