The delicate nature of Oregon Pinot Noir requires a soft hand in the cellar. The clusters were 100% destemmed with a few select lots having small amounts of stems added back to the fermenter for phenolic augmentation. The must underwent an extended cold soak, ranging from five days to two weeks, and during fermentation both punch-down and pump-over techniques were utilized. We monitor the separate lots and tailor the extraction methods to the needs of each one. We find this style of reactive winemaking is the best way to coax the optimal terroir qualities from Pinot Noir, truly exemplifying the prime coastal vineyards from where it is sourced. The wine was aged for ten months in a mix of new and seasoned French oak and racked upon completion of malolactic fermentation.
Dark ruby red in color, this wine opens up with aromas of dark cherry, persimmon, dark chocolate, and sweet pipe tobacco. The palate is rich, robust, and well-balanced, with solid structure and intense flavors of bing cherry, cocoa, candied cranberry, and boysenberry. Superb depth and concentration complement rich tannins and lead into a smooth medium finish.

"A buoyant, lightweight palate shows round, plump plum and cherry notes against a backdrop of tobacco and clove. Juicy, with deep, earthy undertones and an uplifting splash of rhubarb, this is a vivid and graceful red. A hint of smoked charcuterie leaves a touch of spice on the finish."
WW90, Wilfred Wong of Wine.com
"COMMENTARY: The 2019 Elouan Oregon Pinot Noir is lively and bright with excellent acidity. TASTING NOTES: This wine shines with aromas and flavors of dried leaves, red fruits, a hint of minerality. Serve it with grilled salmon fillets. (Tasted: November 6, 2021, San Francisco, CA)"
