elk cove pinot noirElk Cove Vineyards has built a long record of crafting fine Pinot Noir from Willamette Valley grapes, and its 2014 adds to that reputation furthered by second-generation winemaker Adam Campbell. Drawing on vineyards in the valley’s north end, this latest version yields cherry, blackberry and blueberry aromas and flavors, plus subtle spices and cedar elements. It closes with firm tannins and lingering fruit. This earned a gold medal at the 2016 Cascadia Wine Competition.
