Elk Cove is one of Oregon’s oldest and most respected wineries. Wines have been made here since 1977 by the Campbell family. Adam Campbell today works with his parents as the full time winemaker, keeping the business family owned and run. The estate covers 80 ha in four distinct sites all in the prestigious Northern Willamette Valley.
All of Elk Cove’s delicate Pinot Noir fruit undergoes the same meticulous vineyard management and gentle handling through the gravity flow system, thus achieving the elegance, texture and luscious quality that are the hallmarks of exquisite Pinot Noirs.
From the early pioneering days to now, this Willamette Valley Pinot Noir has remained the foundation of Elk Cove Vineyards. This Pinot Noir is blended from several select vineyard sites comprised of Pommard and Dijon plant material and shows the softest, most approachable drinking style Elk Cove makes.
Grape Varieties: 100% Pinot Noir.

Tasting Note: “Aromas and flavors of blackberry, cherry compote and spices, with hints of woodsmoke and mocha. Supple, broad and open-knit. In a plush, fruit-driven style but with good intensity and finishing bite.” Stephen Tanzer’s International Wine Cellar.
