Natalie's Score: 89/100

Lots of sweet chocolate, mocha and coffee on the nose of this generously oaked Oregon Pinot Noir. Medium-bodied and smooth, the vines for this wine are planted along the coastal hills of the state which have cool summers and a short growing season. The name Elouan translates to good light. Joseph Wagner is the winemaker. Racy acidity for seafood and roast chicken.

Pinot Noir food pairings: veal chops, rosemary lamb, barbecued ribs in sauce, chicken cacciatore.

Reviews and Ratings

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

The 2015 growing season was dry and warm - a combination that leads to the production of wonderfully ripe fruit - rich and elegant - layers of cherry, vanilla, toast and milk chocolate. Great structure - very well done!
Craig Kuziemsky rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

A bit heavier and dark in color than a typical Oregon Pinot Noir. The nose offers cherry aroma with tart cherry, cranberry, vanilla and some earth on the palate. The flavors soften nicely into a velvety tannin finish. Tasted September 2018.
From J. Wagner, Copper Cane Wines, Elouan (2015) is an Oregon Pinot Noir sourced from three valleys: the Umpqua, Willamette and Rogue. The wine is rich with lots of ripe and fleshy red fruit, mocha, vanilla and finishes with a light toast. Very elegant and well-built. Drink now and for the next five years. - Community Wine Reviews
