Rich, dark and intense fruit flavors take top billing in this 2016 Elouan Pinot Noir, a wine that beautifully reflects the warm and dry growing season. Dark ruby in color, the wine powers up with aromatics of plum pie, mixed-berry jam and smoky, game-bird characteristics that set the stage for flavors of cherry, blackberry, boysenberry and smoked bacon. The balance is excellent, with solid structure, superb depth and concentration, rich tannins, and a nice smoky, earthy finish. Pair with pork loin, pan-seared salmon, Peking duck or veal with a mushroom sauce.-Winemakers Notes
Elouan is an Oregon Pinot Noir, crafted by Californian winemakers. We are emulating the successful sourcing philosophy we introduced with Meiomi: blending the top Pinot Noir regions together for a richer, more complex style than what you could achieve by sourcing from one small area. In this instance, our grapes are grown in the great Oregon Valleys of Willamette, Umpqua and Rogue. With Elouan we have managed to achieve ripe fruit characters, while retaining the quintessential Oregon Pinot Noir subtleties and nuances of bright acidity and a rich earthiness to the wine."- Joe Wagner, Owner & Winemaker
