#9 Elk Cove Mount Richmond Pinot Noir 2019
They say the number 9 is powerful, representing completion, although not a final ending. More like the fulfillment of one cycle so that you can prepare to initiate the next one. The Elk Cove Mount Richmond is so much more than a steppingstone to the next wine. Born from family grown vineyards in an ancient maritime soil, this Pinot Noir is hardly something to look beyond. Deep and brooding with aromas of dark chocolate and ripe plum, its dusty tannins lend structure to lush black currant and blackberry compote flavors. Finishes earthy with dried fig, black tea, and pine forest. It is a mere coincidence we’re releasing this writeup the week of Thanksgiving as it is a perfect match. How fortunate for us. Delicious.
