James Suckling visited Elk Cove during the 2016 Harvest and gave our 2014 Roosevelt Pinot Noir an “outstanding” 93 point review:
“A juicy and chewy pinot with lots of fruit and tannin tension. It’s fresh and lively though, showing beauty, depth and finesse. Give it two or three years to develop in the bottle. Better in 2019.” – 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!
