Elk Cove 2005 Mount Richmond Pinot Noir (Willamette Valley)

Cuttings from the winery's Roosevelt vineyard were used to plant the Mount Richmond site in 1996. This is a tight, crisp, elegant wine. Aromas suggest coffee grounds, and the fruit is tart and compact—rhubarb and strawberry. But the wine has what the Brits call breed—a somewhat indefinable quality of finesse and elegance, and for a cooler site it has ripened sufficiently to warrant an excellent score. Paul Gregutt
