    Winemaker's Notes:

    There is a quiet kind of excitement in the Willamette Valley after harvest 2008. Phrases and clichés keep rolling on such as classic cool climate, vintage conditions that are only dreamt of, potential to show the best of what Oregon has to offer.

    Roosevelt is our premier Single Vineyard site, is a steep hillside vineyard that undergoes extensive pruning and cluster thinning to limit yields and maximize ripening in order to concentrate the fruit. Furthering our beliefs in ecological farming practices we now completely farm this site organically.

    Critical Acclaim:

    Firm, focused and distinctive for the tangy edge to its mineralaccented cherry, backberry and charred meat flavors, melding easily into a single thrust on the complex and vivid finish. Best from 2011 through 2018.

    Bright ruby-red. Youthful, pungent aromas of dark berry and cherry skin, spicecake, pipe tobacco and dried rose. Weighty and supple in texture, offering sweet dark fruit flavors and notes of candied flowers and smoky herbs. A suave note of mocha arrives on the finish, which leaves sweet vanilla bean and candied blackberry behind. Generous and impressively concentrated pinot with a lot of immediate appeal but the depth to age well.

    The 2008 Pinot Noir Roosevelt Vineyard is from a 3-acre parcel planted in 1993 with high density spacing. It presents an already complex aromatic array of sandalwood, cinnamon, rose petal, black cherry, and black raspberry. On the palate it exhibits extra layers of savory fruit, impeccable balance, and enough underlying structure to evolve for 3-4 years. Drink it from 2013 to 2023. Elk Cove Vineyards’ 2008 collection is first rate.
