The 2017 Elouan Klamath's Kettle Pinot Noir Reserve is an evocative wine. This aromatic and enticing wine shows bright red fruit and hints of flowers in the aromas before finishing with generous black fruit flavors. Pair it with a savory lamb stew. (Tasted: April 21, 2020, San Francisco, CA)
This Oregon reserve pinot noir shows with beautiful color, excellent depth, solid structure, and firm acidity. Lively notes of raspberry, cranberry, and red cherry with hints of dry herbs. Rich and finessed, this Oregon pinot noir melds both ripe fruit flavors of cranberry, strawberry, and black fruit flavors of plum and currants. Exceptionally smooth tannins with a lingering finish.
Pair with slow-cooked duck, Gorgonzola cheese, grilled filet, or lamb chops with red-wine reduction glaze.
