Cherry and apples with fall spices.
The 2011 is bursting with bright red cherry fruit and juicy dark fruit character, framed by silky tannins and great acidity, with notes of chicory, cedar and cinnamon. The most approachable drinking style Elk Cove makes, this wine also shows great complexity for a Pinot Noir in this price range.
Elk Cove gets its name from 1974, when 40 Roosevelt elk came out of the forest and slept right next to the vineyard owners’ home.
