Natalie's Score: 87/100

Full-bodied with cherry aromas and a tannic grip. Decant 2 hours. Pair with meaty fish, like salmon and tuna.

Martha Kelly AIWS, CS rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

Medium ruby in colour, with soft, ripe tannins and refreshing acidity, this wine has flavours of strawberry, dark cherry, black pepper, beet root, vanilla, violets, savoury mushroom, and blueberry jam.
The flavours linger on the elegant, warming finish.
Drink now, or cellar until 2017.
Pair with a traditional harvest turkey, gourmet burgers, or slightly chilled on its own.
Date tasted: February 2014.
Elk Cove is one of the most venerable producers in Oregon – a relatively young wine region in a global context. They’ve been making wine for over 35 years, and have proven their mettle as Pinot specialists. This impressive specimen shows plenty of rich peppery blackberry and raspberry character, with impeccable balance. Source: Vintages Wine Panel, Jan. 2013
