STAFF PICK: Our 2016 Old Vines Pinot Noir
Our 2016 Old Vines Pinot Noir $70 (regularly $75)
“Who doesn’t love a classic? Our Old Vines block is comprised entirely of Pommard clones – one of the main clone types planted in the early days of Oregon wine country. This block of grapes is special to us because they were planted when Joe and Pat Campbell first began Elk Cove in the mid-1970s. How often do you have a chance to drink Oregon pinot noir more than 40 years in the making?
These vines produce wine that has beautiful black cherry and blackberry notes with a touch of earthiness and spice. The tannins are smooth and supple, and the elegance of this wine begs to be paired with dishes like Pacific Northwest salmon or pork tenderloin. We didn’t produce many cases of Old Vines, so don’t miss out!” – Anne Nguyen, Tasting Room Associate
