2011 Pinot Noir Willamette Valley

From the early days until today, our Willamette Valley Pinot Noir has always been the wine that defines Elk Cove.

The 2011 is bursting with bright red cherry fruit and juicy dark fruit character, framed by silky tannins and great acidity, with notes of chicory, cedar and cinnamon.  The most approachable drinking style Elk Cove makes, this wine also shows great complexity for a Pinot Noir in this price range.

Staff Comments on this Wine...

“The 2011 Willamette Valley Pinot is a “perfect example of a wine that has tons of fruit, but still has great characters other than fruit.  That’s when you know you’ve had low yields and hillside farming on great vineyard sites”
