Elk Cove, one of Willamette Valley's pioneering wineries, continues to wow us. Whether we're sipping the shockingly good $15 La Sirene or any (any) of their single vineyards, there's always a smile on our faces. For all the acclaim that some of the "flashier" bottlings receive, our go-to wine for club multiple vintages running is Clay Court. Perhaps it is because Clay Court best expresses the red-fruited side of Elk Cove (and we love our red-fruited Pinots), or maybe that it is consistently the most elegant wine in their fantastic line-up. Whatever the reason, we're even more wowed by the 2016 Clay Court and its pie cherry Douglas-fir-forest-in-fall aromas with whisk you into raspberry tea, strawberry, and black cherry flavors accented by clay-like minerals, finishing pure and supple. - Marcus
