James Suckling visited Elk Cove during the 2016 Harvest and gave our 2014 Mount Richmond Pinot Noir an outstanding 93 point review:
“A bolder style of pinot here with lots of blackberry and bark character. Full body, firm tannins and a fresh finish. Tight and structured. Try in 2019 when the tannins soften.” – 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!
