Italian plum and blackberry bramble introduce this black-fruited wine with wafts of rose and croissant. The smooth, savory palate is replete with berry compote and black fig accompanied by powdered cocoa, nutmeg and cinnamon.

2019 is an excellent vintage for Elk Cove, despite whatever fire-related weather and smoke issues the Willamette Valley was suffering. Perhaps the northwest corner location was spared the smoke; in any event the estate-grown Pinots are fruit-driven, beautifully ripened, clean and textured and immediately delicious. The Mount Richmond adds a touch of leather to its blackberry fruit, along with refreshing minerality and a neat streak of espresso. Trailing out the finish is a note of clean straw. Drink now and through the middle of the decade.
