Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate

2002 Pinot Gris Willamette Valley:

89 Points “One of the finest Oregon Pinot Gris I have ever tasted is Elk Cove’s 2002. Melon balls, spices, white peaches, and honey can be found in its extravagant aromas. Medium-bodied and well-balanced, it slathers the palate with creamed apples and currants. This is a rich, lush, medium-bodied wine with excellent grip and depth. It should be drunk over the next 18 months.” – Pierre Rovani (July 31, 2003)
