2019 Mount Richmond Magnum (1.5L)

Italian plum and blackberry bramble introduce this black-fruited wine with wafts of rose and croissant. The smooth, savory palate is replete with berry compote and black fig accompanied by powdered cocoa, nutmeg and cinnamon.

Shimmering ruby-red. Powerful cherry cola, black raspberry, candied licorice and exotic spices on the fragrant nose. Appealingly sweet and pliant in texture, offering juicy red and dark berry flavors, a touch of succulent herbs and a spicy flourish that builds on the back half. Finishes long and smoky, with a repeating cherry note and subtle tannic grip.

2019 is an excellent vintage for Elk Cove, despite whatever fire-related weather and smoke issues the Willamette Valley was suffering. Perhaps the northwest corner location was spared the smoke; in any event the estate-grown Pinots are fruit-driven, beautifully ripened, clean and textured and immediately delicious. The Mount Richmond adds a touch of leather to its blackberry fruit, along with refreshing minerality and a neat streak of espresso. Trailing out the finish is a note of clean straw. Drink now and through the middle of the decade.

“Aromas of cherries, plums, raspberries and vanilla bean with sweet spices. Medium-bodied with powdery tannins and lively acidity. Racy and textured. Long, flavorful finish. Drink or hold.”

Slow Wine Guide 2022 Selection

“From a steep-sloped vineyard comes this earth-toned, dusty cherry fragranced Pinot Noir. A bowlful of black cherries, Santa Rosa plums, mushrooms, licorice, black raspberries, and Asian spices swirl delectable on the palate. Refined tannins and forever finish cap off the striking package.”

“The generous stream of red and blue fruit melds with mocha, fig preserves, and nutmeg for an elegantly appointed mouthfeel.”
