Best Buy! The Elk Cove Vineyards tandem of Heather Perkin and second-generation winemaker Adam Campbell combine on this new sister project, and this Pinot Gris benefits from a broad base of fruit sources throughout the Willamette Valley, including 30-year-old plantings at their Estate Vineyard that rank among the oldest in Oregon. Clean aromas of melon and lychee include talcum powder, toasted almond and grassiness. It’s a pleasant sipper with flavors of white peach and apricot, a rich midpalate, and a brisk finish with lime juice and pulp. These wines are available in Arizona, California, the Carolinas, Colorado, Georgia, Idaho, Illinois, Massachusetts, Michigan, Montana, Pennsylvania and Texas.
