2006 Et Fille Elton Vineyard Eola-Amity Hills Willamette Valley Pinot Noir

13.5% alc., $42. · Light crimson in color. The cherry fruit in the nose is highlighted by the smell of a field of wildflowers, grasses and sage. Very elegant and feminine with demure raspberry and pomegranate fruit with a touch of grassiness. Gossamer tannins and lively acidity. Not flamboyant at all and will never win any beauty contests, but a wine that is nice to come home to. Reviewed September 15, 2008 WINERY » ARTICLE »

2005 Et Fille Elton Vineyard Eola-Amity Hills Pinot Noir

126 cases, $36. Elton Vineyard is a mature vineyard planted in the 1980s and farmed by Dick and Betty O’Brien. Pommard clone. Aged for 10 months in 50% new oak. I tasted this at the winery as well as at home a couple of weeks prior. · There is plenty of structure here but the wine is not jammy. The nose opens up with wild strawberries and buttered toast. The complex flavors include dark cherries, red currents, wild berries, white pepper and tobacco. The finish is clean and satisfying with tangy acidity. Cellaring will enhance this wine further.
