This Willamette Valley Pinot Noir is made with fruit from all five of Elk Cove's vineyard sites: Estate, Mount Richmond, Five Mountain, Clay Court and Windhill. They also purchase a small amount of select fruit from other producers who are longtime friends. These sites are comprised of both Pommard and Dijon plant material, with multiple clones represented. Because they draw from vineyards representing all three of the major Willamette Valley soil types, they are able to pick and choose for different flavor components to make the best possible blend each year for their Willamette Valley Pinot Noir. Elk Cove's goal is the perfect version of what they believe a Willamette Valley Pinot should be: a wine with freshness of fruit, well-integrated alcohol, and great concentration of flavor.
