2016 Mount Richmond
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.
“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.”

“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.”
