Wine Review: This bright red colored Pinot Noir from Elk Cove opens very mild and inviting red cherry and gentle red raspberry bouquet. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, a touch acidic and nicely coats your mouth. The flavor profile is a mild red plum with notes of red cherry and faint oak. The finish is rather dry and its dusty tannins stick around for a little while. This wine would pair well with comfort foods in the near term. I would pair it with beef bourguignon. Enjoy

Winemaker Notes: High tonal colors of Italian plum show off Mount Richmond's display of smoke and dried lavender on the nose. Cranberry, nutmeg and dark cacao slip into aromas of black cherry and purple plum. The tongue is delighted by spicy clove and sage and tempered by black currant and Bing cherry. Silky tannins with medium-high acid make this a savory and sexy Pinot Noir.

Your comments on this wine:





Are all wines meant to be aged? No. In fact, perhaps 90% of today's wines are vinified for consumption within 2 years of the vintage.
