2008 PInot Blanc Willamette Valley:

Pinot Blanc “Value Pick” — “Tending toward the clean, lean side, flavors of zesty green apple and zingy licorice marry with flinty mineral to create a tart and tangy yet satisfying sipper that can go it solo or partner nicely with oysters on the halfshell.” (September 1, 2009)

2008 Pinot Noir Rose Willamette Valley:

“Value Pick; Pretty pink color, forward floral aroma, touch of anise, light and fresh. An easy-drinking summer quaffer.” (June 15, 2009)

2007 Pinot Noir Willamette Valley: 

“Value Picks. Among Elk Cove’s Pinots, this has a warm, round approachability that makes it immediately appealing. Well-balanced elements of fruit, acidity and youthful, yet unobtrusive tannins say you can consume now or keep a couple around for later.” (November 15, 2009)
