2010 Elk Cove Vineyards Clay Court Willamette Valley Pinot Noir

13.5% alc., pH 3.60, 352 cases, $48. This vineyard is located in the Parrot Mountain area of the Chehalem Mountains AVA. Acquired by Elk Cove Vineyards in 2009, this 15-acre vineyard was planted in 2001 to Dijon 115, 777 and Pommard. The soils are dark red Jory in type. Yield 1.75 tons per acre. · Light reddish-purple color in the glass. Uplifted aromas of dark red cherries, spice and sandalwood. Well-spiced mid-weight cherry essence with nicely integrated acidity and gossamer tannins. A wine of style and grace with plenty of cherry talking. Much better later in the day from a previously opened and re-corked bottle. Very good. Reviewed November 24, 2012 WINERY » ARTICLE »
