2001 Roosevelt

The 2001 vintage is showing the prettier and softer side of Pinot noir and Elk Cove’s premier vineyard site, Roosevelt is in keeping with this fact. A deep violet color, Roosevelt 2001 gives more fruit forwardness with red cherries, blueberries and a hint of vanilla bean. The supple mouthfeel balances essence of cloves and spice with softly integrated oak tannins on the finish. A delicate beauty that will age gracefully over the next twenty years.
