“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
STAFF PICK: Our 2016 Mount Richmond Pinot Noir
We’re featuring Tasting Room Lead Neil Frew’s favorite Elk Cove wine, our 2016 Mount Richmond Pinot Noir
, all month in our tasting room. We’re also giving you $5 off per bottle through May 30, 2019. Cheers!
“Others have called Mt. Richmond the quintessential Yamhill-Carlton vineyard, and I’d have to agree. The marine sedimentary soils in this area provide the backdrop for amazingly rich and dark flavors unlike anywhere else on the Valley. Look for black cherry, blueberry, and violets on the nose. This is something special!
And my favorite part about Mt. Richmond is that despite the extra body and tannin, the texture is always silky and smooth. Pair with braised short ribs or seared duck breast, because this is a wine that deserves it.” – Neil Frew, Tasting Room Lead
