Elouan Pinot Noir 2018
|Region||United States, Oregon|
Our 2018 Elouan Oregon Pinot Noir is a beautiful dark scarlet in color, with aromas of dried cherries and blackberry, high fruit notes with hints of vanilla and clove spice. The flavors are structured and balanced with bright red raspberry and cherry, boysenberry jam fill the palate, complemented by subtle notes of white pepper. Full bodied this Pinot Noir is complex with a smooth lingering finish.
The label speaks of sourcing from "prime vineyards on Oregon's coast" though no such vineyards exist, the coast being subject to ocean-driven storms and weather. It's almost jet-black in color, light in flavor, with suggestions of black cherries, new mowed grass, and plenty of tobacco and vanilla.
