Elk Cove Vineyards

Vitteaut-Alberti

Brut Blanc de Blancs Crémant de Bourgogne Chardonnay

Just concluded our annual Fall seclusion at our cabin in the Rangeley lakes region of Maine, mobile service up there is mostly non-existent, after several days I am posting again. Notes are somewhat brief, as my focus is relaxing and watching the Common Loons swimming and diving in the cove in front of our camp.

Nose has cold oak, yeasty bread dough, yellow apple flesh and cold limestone.
Palate has chalk dust on yellow apple, saline minerality and cold bread dough.
Medium-short finish, but quite pleasant on the nose.

Redhead Ducks Zinfandel Blend 2005

Just concluded our annual Fall seclusion at our cabin in the Rangeley lakes region of Maine, mobile service up there is mostly non-existent, after several days I am posting again. Notes are somewhat brief, as my focus is relaxing and watching the Common Loons swimming and diving in the cove in front of our camp.

60% Zinfandel, 32% Cabernet Sauvignon, 6% Merlot and 2% Cabernet Franc, for the 2005 vintage blend. This label features Redhead ducks, which we have commonly seen occupying our beachfront, not this year unfortunately.
Nose has vanilla bean, pipe tobacco, ripe cherry, ripe blackberry, prune (light) and over-ripe plum.
Palate has rich blackberry & cherry, oak plank, chalk (light), dried strawberry, ripe plum and raisin (light).
Beautifully long finish and tannins are long gone; this bottle is at the end of its life, also our last bottle of this vintage. Always interesting to see how long they will hold. The labels have always been a favorite of ours.

Black Diamond Vineyard

Russian River Valley Pinot Noir 2014

I’m not a big Pinot drinker, but this one is balanced nicely. Cranberry, raspberry fruitiness but a good counterbalance of bramble herbs and surprisingly silkier texture than what I expected. Finished a touch buttery for a red. Quite pleasant with elk steaks and butternut squash purée. — 5 years ago
