Elouan Pinot Noir 2017
Elouan is the result of Californian winemakers venturing up to Oregon, one of the world’s renowned Pinot Noir regions, with a goal to produce Pinot Noir with depth of flavor, vibrancy and suppleness. For this wine we brought together fruit from three regions along Oregon’s coast; Umpqua, Willamette and Rogue Valleys, which harmonize beautifully when blended as one. The diversity of these cool climate areas combined with an elongated growing season creates wine with intense structure, while maintaining a vibrant acidity that differentiates it from any California Pinot Noir.

Wine SpectatorA spirited little red, with lively cherry blossom and sassafras flavors that end on a snappy note. Drink now through 2022. 72,707 cases made.
Wine EnthusiastNot as successful as the previous vintage, this big-production wine leans heavily on flavors of vanilla and tobacco rather than its rather light and generic red berry fruit. It could be an inexpensive Pinot Noir from just about anywhere. Drink soon.
