I first visited the Elk Cove winery in 2009 as part of the Pinot Camp training that was sponsored by prominent Willamette Valley wine producers. The Campbell Family have a beautiful spot in rural Gaston, Oregon. At that time, they were busy growing and implementing organic farming techniques. The property was gorgeous then and even more beautiful this past June when I returned along with my wife Tammy for her first trip to the Willamette. At the tasting bar, a young student from a local university who was working on her geology degree showed Tammy and me a new line of wines the Campbell’s had launched, dubbed Pike Road. These wines are from vineyards near the Gaston site that had been purchased and developed in the recent past and they were terrific! Drinkable and rich, yet will pair well with a myriad of cuisines, I couldn’t wait to get these into our stores. We also tried the Pinot Blanc and it was love instantly! Tammy and I bought 6 bottles from the winery and drank one every night of our trip. It is a crisp and minerally beauty and it was recently named in the 2018 Wine Spectator Top 100 Wines. It is a well-deserved award.

Check them out this Saturday at our stores from 1 P.M. to 4 P.M.

Cheers!

Pike Road Pinot Noir Willamette Valley
Pike Road Pinot Noir
The Pike Road 2016 Pinot Noir is a richly concentrated and elegant take on this classic Willamette Valley wine. Barrels from each of the single vineyard sites are selected for this blend. The wine is the color of garnet with aromas of dark cherry, baking spice, violets, and savory notes that entice. The palate offers more pie cherry forming a juicy core alongside hints of leather. Firm tannins dance around to give a long finish.

Elk Cove Pinot Blanc Willamette Valley
Elk Cove Pinot Blanc
Jumps from the glass with aromas of bright tangerine set off by slate, smooth river rock and a flash of honeysuckle. Ripe and mouth-watering, this wine is bursting with stone fruit and crisp Meyer lemon buffered by the creamy texture of meringue. Wine Spectator Top 100 Wine
