For all the acclaim that some of the single vineyards receive, our go-to wine multiple vintages running is Clay Court. Expressing the red-fruited side of Elk Cove (and we love our red-fruited Pinots), it is consistently the most elegant wine in their fantastic line-up. We're in love with its heart of gorgeous cherry, its Douglas-fir-forest-in-fall aromas, its wonderful silky-creamy texture and mounting intensity. - Marcus
93 points Vinous: "Intensely perfumed aromas of red fruit preserves, cherry cola, candied rose and baking spices carry a smoky mineral overtone. Concentrated yet lively on the palate, offering appealingly sweet, smoke-tinged raspberry, cherry liqueur, floral pastille and spicecake flavors that spread out slowly with air. Conveys an appealing blend of power and finesse and finishes with steadily building tannins and floral-driven persistence."
