Outstanding rating from Great Northwest Wine


Our 2013 Rosé got top marks from Great Northwest Wine:

“Adam Campbell never cuts corners with any of his lots, including this brilliant pink, which he created from Pinot Noir vines young and old at a crop load of 2.1 tons per acre. There’s a brushing of aromas akin to dusty Bing cherry, strawberry and cranberry juice, followed by delicate flavors of pink raspberry and white strawberry. Its medium body and cherry-skin tannins make for a graceful and mouthwatering rose that’s meant for more than the patio and priced for case purchasing. Fans of Tranche Cellars’ Pink Pape will find a kindred spirit with this. Outstanding!” – Eric Degerman and Andy Perdue (July 16, 2014)

The Oregonian

2006 Pinot Noir Rose Willamette Valley:

“But when a pinot noir rosé is successful, it’s one of the most rewarding rosés you can drink. Elk Cove Vineyards in Gaston seems to have the knack. This 2006 rendition has just the right pale watermelon hue and delivers all of pinot noir’s famed berryish goodness and delicacy, with unmistakable whiffs of strawberry and red cherry. This is a dry, refined pinot noir rosé, a benchmark bottling.” – Matt Kramer (June 3, 2007)
