Simply put, the 2014 Elk Cove Pinot Noir Five Mountain is a superb Oregon Pinot Noir - beautiful bright red fruit, soft fruit tannins, wonderful aromas of violets and lavender with an underlying earthiness that adds interest and complexity.
The Wine Advocate agrees with us, rating it 93 points: "From a vineyard planted in 1978 by Dick Ponzi, the 2014 Pinot Noir Five Mountain has a very well-defined bouquet with real mineralité coming through. This is extremely well focused. The palate is medium-bodied with crisp acidity, real tension and vigor with fine tannin, dark cherry and red plum fruit leading to a nicely poised, Volnay-Iike finish that is pure class. This comes highly recommended. Drink 2018 to 2032. 93 points."
