2016 Mount Richmond Magnum (1.5L)
MAGNUM: 1.5 L Bottle
Candied aromas of kirsch and fresh raspberry jam counter-balanced by dark notes of toffee and fresh tobacco. Fresh blackberry and red plum on the palate play against a ferrous background of orange peel and licorice notes that add interest to the clarity on the finish.
“These wines are very site-specific, reminding me of Burgundy, which is probably why Burgundians are taking such an interest… From the Pinots, I had so many scores over 92 that it is hard to choose just five from the splendid 2016s...”
– Decanter (November 23, 2019)
“The 2016 Pinot Noir Mount Richmond is pale to medium ruby-purple in color with a lovely open nose of black cherry preserves, blueberry compote and boysenberry with notions of floral perfume, tilled soil and dried leaves. Light to medium-bodied, it fills the mouth with warm black fruits and layers of baking spice and earth, with a good frame of fine-grained tannins and great freshness, finishing very long and spicy.”
– Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate (Aug 31, 2018)

“Limpid ruby. Expansive aromas of red and dark berry liqueur and cherry cola are complemented by a spicy topnote that gains volume as the wine opens up. Juicy, concentrated and supple in the mouth, offering appealingly sweet black raspberry, mocha and floral pastille flavors and an exotic touch of five-spice powder.”
– Vinous (May, 2019)
“There’s a beautifully fresh array of violets, ripe red and blue cherries, raspberries and red plums on the nose of this pristine, youthful pinot. The palate continues the pristine theme with ebullient, round and fleshy cherries and red plums in abundance. Drink or hold.”

“…a wine that delivers a full measure of concentrated, very insistent fruit, the winery’s Mount Richmond bottling is a weighty, well-structured offering that commends cellaring if it is to grow into its best.”

Our 2016 Mount Richmond Pinot Noir received an excellent 93 point rating from Wine Enthusiast.
– Wine Enthusiast Magazine (December, 2018)
“Elk Cove is an Oregon trailblazer, responsible for pushing classically-styled Pinot Noir that has rivalled Burgundy for decades. Their ‘Mount Richmond’ bottling comes from a cool-climate terroir abundant in Willakenzie soils; it’s a deep and luxurious Grand Cru equivalent.”
