Then it’s all about Oregon’s Elk Cove winery located in the Willamette Valley. Elk Cove Vineyards was founded in 1974 by Pat and Joe Campbell. Winemaker Adam Campbell joined forces with his parents in 1995 and Elk Cove remains proudly family owned.
Good Life Guy’s Wine of the Week:
2009 Elk Cove Pinot Noir, Willametter Valley
2009 was a vintage of abundance. Ideal springtime weather led to a hot summer, which gave us a beautiful, uniform and potentially prolific crop. Harvest went off without a hitch and we picked the grapes at a deliberate, but frankly leisurely pace, wich allwed focusing on retained acidity. So, vintage 2009 may be remembered as one of those rare combinations of excellent quality and quantity, with the wines showing flash.
“This fresh red is inviting and invigorating for its juicy black currant, plum and white pepper flavors, playing with zest against polished tannins and lively acidity. Drink now through 2019. 14,000 cases made.”
