2004 Elk Cove Vineyards Willamette Valley Pinot Noir

14.5% alc., $19. One of Oregon's oldest and most distinguished producers. It is a family owned and operated winery with Adam Godlee Campbell as the winemaker. · Nice wine for what it is. A toasty oak and fruit scented nose leads to luscious cherry and raspberry flavors kissed by oak. The mouth feel is viscous and the whole package is nicely balanced. You would be hard pressed to find a better under-$20 Pinot Noir. Reviewed September 5, 2006
