    Winemaker's Notes:

    Adelsheim first used the name "Elizabeth's Reserve" in 1986 to designate the blend of the best barrels of Pinot Noir. For a dozen intervening vintages, it designated a single vineyard wine, but since 2000, "Elizabeth's Reserve" has again been a "best of winery" reserve – the best barrels from the best lots due to the coming of age of estate vineyards. With many lots, representing different soil types, clones, site climates, fermenter sizes, and barrel characteristics, winemaker Dave Paige must pull together those lots that best create a reserve-level wine, one that truly reflects the vintage and character of the north Willamette Valley.

    The 2006 Elizabeth's Reserve offers aromas of bright red raspberries and ripe currants with hints of black cherry. Longer contemplation reveals nuances of the smoky cedar essence of lapsang souchong tea and dried rose petal. On the palate, the flavors mimic the aromas, leading again with raspberry. The wine's texture is exceptionally balanced with good upfront acidity, and a silky mouthfeel with soft tannins that linger to a strawberry cream finish.

    Enjoy this wine when young, or allow it to age gracefully for five or up to ten years with proper storage conditions. It will pair beautifully with the Pinot noir classics – lamb, duck, grilled salmon, and aged cheeses.
