On this Sunday night I have opened the 2013 Elk Cove Willamette Valley Pinot Gris.

On the nose you will get meyer lemon, white peach, cantaloupe, honey, ginger, spice, musk and minerality.

On the palate there is meyer lemon, white peach, ripe tangerine, anise, honey and crushed gravel.

This wine is medium bodied with a viscous mouthfeel and medium +acidity that has a long citrus minerality finish. Lets all look forward to the new year with renewed excitement and hope that this new year will be of hope and renewal. Please stay healthy and safe. Happy New Year to everyone. Nostrovia! 🥂🥂🥂🥂

This is a stellar representation of Pinot Gris from the Willamette Valley. Aromas of apples and stone fruit with just the right amount if acidity and richness to give it am overall excellent depth of character. Elk Cove never disappoints.

Blind tasted among 12 other Pinot Gris/Grigio and this was one of my favorites. Nice work Elk Cove!

2013 vintage. Lovely apple, pear, nectarine. Refreshing acidity.
