One of the Northwest’s most respected winemakers is Tony Rynders, who prides himself on a “low and slow” approach, particularly with these four barrels of Pinot Noir from a vineyard prized by Campbell family at Elk Cove. H devoted 17 months to French oak, with two of those barrels being new before more than a year of bottling aging. Its dark blue fruit profile of blackcurrant, elderberry and Bing cherry includes a dusting of cocoa powder and scrape of vanilla. Juicy acidity overrides the late-arriving tannins for a beautiful balance as hints of forest floor and horehound add great layers for complexity. Suggested pairings include dishes such as Beef Stroganoff, Veal Cordon Blue and Eggplant Parmesan.
