This has a vibrant and lively nose with upbeat, red-cherry and berry aromas that are laced with attractive perfume. The palate has a smooth, fresh and juicy array of vibrant red-cherry flavor and holds the finish in attractive, fleshy mode.

The 2017 Elk Cove Willamette Valley Pinot Noir is lovely, upfront, ready-to-enjoy wine. This is a beautiful wine with a streak of earth and savory spices. Pair it with grilled salmon.
A multi-faceted nose of cherry, tobacco, violets and pastry introduces a wine with great purity of fruit. Its fresh, rounded notes of plums, currants and fresh candied cherries give way to finely balanced tannins in this elegant, bright wine.
