Our 2021 Five Mountain Pinot Noir was awarded a 94-point score from Owen Bargreen.
“The 2021 ‘Five Mountain’ was sourced from this sit-in the Chehalem Mountains AVA which was purchased by Elk Cove in 2005. The wine is brimming with juicy red fruit flavors with kumquat zest, damp earth and salty accents on the palate. Medium to full-bodied, this is juicy, delicious Pinot Noir that has some really good aging potential. Drink 2023-2037” — Owen Bargreen
