Elk Cove Pinot Noir Willamette Estate 2011
The 2011 Elk Cove Vineyards Pinot Gris has sweet and unctuous aromatics while showing crispness on the palate with vibrant citrus and grapefruit. True to Elk Cove Vineyards’ style, a rich mouthfeel leads to a full and satisfying balanced finish. Drink this lovely white wine as an aperitif or with a variety of food pairings from salmon and main-course salads to Asian and Thai influenced dishes.
Disappointing at second tasting but I had a Merlot as a prior wine.
External Reviews for Elk Cove Pinot Noir Willamette Estate
Fresh and vibrant, with lively melon and pear flavors, finishing on a citrusy note. Drink now.
Relatively lush for the coolness of the vintage, this velvety red leads with dark cherry scents gathered by a tarry earthiness. Its flavors stay dark and savory, the gripping tannins a touch furry, suggesting that it’s packed with potential energy. A year in the cellar will give it further definition.
