Elk Cove Vineyards 2013 Pinot Noir Rosé, Willamette Valley, $16

By on July 16, 2014

elk-cove-vineyards-pinot-noir-rose-bottleAdam Campbell never cuts corners with any of his lots, including this brilliant pink, which he created from Pinot Noir vines young and old at a crop load of 2.1 tons per acre. There’s a brushing of aromas akin to dusty Bing cherry, strawberry and cranberry juice, followed by delicate flavors of pink raspberry and white strawberry. Its medium body and cherry-skin tannins make for a graceful and mouthwatering rose that’s meant for more than the patio and priced for case purchasing. Fans of Tranche Cellars’ Pink Pape will find a kindred spirit with this.
