ÉLEVÉE WINEGROWERS Pinot Noir, Willamette Valley ‘Departure’ 2019

The 2019 Departure is selected from the best barrels from all of Elevee’s four vineyard sites and is aged for 11 months on 77% new French oak. An eye-popping display of neon ruby at the core moving to a bluish rim, this stunning Pinot Noir showcases notes of red plum, black cherry, ground nutmeg, black licorice, and just a hint of powdered baking chocolate. It’s more lean on the palate with flavors of macerated strawberry and just s smooch of dried poultry herbs. Tannins are silky and on the medium side, while the acidity is elevated and mouthwatering. 200 cases made
