James Suckling visited Elk Cove during the 2016 Harvest and gave our 2014 Willamette Valley Pinot Noir an outstanding 92 point review:
“A wine with plenty of dried-strawberry and berry aromas and flavors. Medium to full body, firm and velvety tannins — yet this is always refined and polished. A beauty. Drink or hold.”
James Suckling is one of today’s leading wine critics. According to his profile at JamesSuckling.com, “A wine that I rate 90 points or more is outstanding (A). It’s a wine I want to drink a glass of and is an outstanding purchase.” The title of his 2016 article on the Willamette Valley tells it all: Oregon Pinot Noir is Ready to Take on the World. We agree!
