2021 Roosevelt Magnum (1.5L)
MAGNUM: 1.5 L Bottle
This reserve-level pinot noir is produced exclusively from grapes from our Roosevelt Vineyard. The wine is fermented in French oak and only the best barrels are selected to create what many consider Elk Cove’s finest Pinot Noir.
“The 2019 Pinot Noir Roosevelt comes from vines planted in 1993. It has a medium ruby-purple color and alluring scents of red cherries, blueberries, charcuterie, aniseed and iron. Light-bodied, silky and concentrated, it has very fragrant fruits, silky tannins and juicy acidity that calls you in for another sip on the long, allspice-laced finish.”
– Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate (May 2023)
Sleek and expressive, with handsome raspberry and guava flavors accented by rose petal and orange peel as this glides toward polished tannins.

Deep magenta. Vibrant, spice- and mineral-accented mulberry and raspberry scents show fine clarity and pick up hints of incense, topsoil and cola with air. Juicy and penetrating on the palate, offering intense red and blue fruit, candied lavender and spicecake flavors that smoothly meld depth and vivacity. Fine-grained, even tannins lend gentle grip to an impressively long, smooth finish that echoes the blue fruit and floral notes with authority.
