Vintage Notes: 

In 2019 we waited patiently for sugar levels to rise, confident that our vineyard practices would protect the fruit. Our patience paid off with hang times as long as 125 days with just fantastic concentration. – Adam Campbell, winemaker

Vineyards:

The 2019 Pinot Noir ¡Salud! Cuvée is a hand-picked selection of the very best barrels from our La Bohème Vineyard Block, part of the original Elk Cove Winery Estate in the northern Willamette Valley.

Aging:

10 months in French oak.

Winemaking:

This quarter-barrel lot highlights the silky, dark fruit profile of La Bohème Vineyard.  To maximize ripening and flavor concentration Elk Cove practices extreme viticulture – including heavy pruning, leaf pulling and cluster thinning – to concentrate the ripe fruit flavors, maintain a silky-smooth mouthfeel and most importantly, to foster complexity and length on the palate. Intense work in the vineyard allowed for a very hands-off approach in the winery.  This wine is truly a classic from a spectacular vineyard.  The 2019 ¡Salud! Cuvée is the benchmark that will be used to measure all of Elk Cove’s 2019 Pinot Noirs.

Release Date:

September 2021
