Tasting Notes For Elouan Pinot Noir 2019
The 2019 vintage saw ample rain and snowpack in winter, which was followed by a cool and wet spring. As a result, bud break in Oregon started in mid-April. A cooling down in early June slowed flowering through the second and third week of the month, after which we experienced a few days of record-high temperatures. July ramped up the heat, moving the vintage rapidly to veraison. In August we saw more warm temperatures, and the first part of September brought accelerated fruit development. By September, when temperatures cooled, we breathed a big sigh of relief because the cooler conditions led to a slow and steady harvest. With our 2019 Elouan Pinot Noir, we are looking at slightly higher-than-average sugar and acid, complemented by beautiful flavors and rich, well-balanced fruit.
Our 2019 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.
