A full-bodied Pinot Noir, with cherry aromas and racy, mouth-watering acidity makes this wine very food friendly. Finishes with notes of cranberry, sour beet root and wild raspberry. Pair with seafood and roast chicken.

Pinot Noir food pairings: beef bourguignon, planked salmon, roasted turkey, mushroom terrine.

Reviews and Ratings

Rachelle O'Connor rated this wine as 92/100 with the following review:

Soft cherry and raspberry aromas with lots of lip smacking deliciousness - earth, plum, cherry and baking spice - great acidity, silky tannins and a lingering cherry finish.
Paul Lupinacci rated this wine as 92/100 with the following review:

A wonderful Pinot Noir with cherry aromas. A silky smooth texture with flavours of cherry and cranberry on the palette and a pleasant middling finish. Overall, a very well balanced Pinot with soft tannins. Great with chicken or turkey.
Julian Park rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

Full bodied pinot. Voilets, red cherries and forest floor aroma. Flavours of cranberry, and red cherries.
Elk Cove (2014) is a robust, dark ruby Pinot Noir from the Willamette Valley in Oregon. Lots of ripe red berry notes on this balance and elegant Pinot Noir with velvety tannins. - Community Wine Reviews
