Elk Cove Mount Richmond Pinot Noir 2012

Winemaker's Notes:

93 points Wine Enthusiast: Planted in 1996, this vineyard is moving into maturity and delivering a deep, juicy blueberry-pie flavor. It's densely fruity, with baking spice and pie crust accents, along with a sprinkling of cinnamon powder. Absolutely delicious already, it seems best suited for near-term consumption. 793 cases produced. Alcohol 14%. (Jun 2014)

Elk Cove Vineyards is one of Oregon's oldest and most respected wine producers. Founded in 1974, by Pat and Joe Campbell, our focus has always been to produce hand crafted, Estate grown wines that can rival the best in the world. Estate Vineyards Estate vineyards now cover over 180 acres on four separate sites in the Northern Willamette Valley. Steep south facing slopes, of Willakenzie and Laurelwood soil types with excellent drainage, provide the perfect environment to grow the world class wine grapes that are the basis for creating Elk Cove wines. Proper site selection and meticulous vine management along with harvesting at very low yields creates the concentration and depth of flavor that are hallmarks of Elk Cove wines. Family Owned and Operated Elk Cove Vineyards proudly remains a family owned and operated winery. Winemaker Adam Godlee Campbell joined forces with his parents in 1995 to produce outstanding Pinot Noir and Pinot Gris. Growing up among the vines on the Elk Cove Estate has instilled a tremendous respect for the soil in which the grapes were grown, therefore his role as winemaker is one of stewardship over intervention. In the winery Adam employs gravity flow and gentle handling to protect the inherent qualities of the Estate grown fruit. We at Elk Cove hope you enjoy these wines as much as we all enjoyed the creative process in making them. Read less

Broad and expressive, not heavy but dense, with cherry, black plum and rose petal flavors that soar over refined tannins into the long and harmonious finish. Best from 2015 through 2022.

Planted in 1996, this vineyard is moving into maturity and delivering a deep, juicy blueberry-pie flavor. It’s densely fruity, with baking spice and pie crust accents, along with a sprinkling of cinnamon powder. Absolutely delicious already, it seems best suited for near-term consumption.
