James Suckling visited Elk Cove during the 2016 Harvest and gave our 2013 Mount Richmond Pinot Noir an outstanding 93 point review:
“A vivid and bright wine with dried-strawberry and floral aromas and flavors. Medium to full body, medium, velvety tannins and a delicate chocolate, hazelnut and ripe-fruit finish. Impressive for the vintage. Drink or hold.” – James Suckling
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!
