The best and most complete Goodrich we've tasted. Deep, inviting and super-complex aromas lead to dark red-fruited silk -- seriously, the silken, wonderfully weighty middle of this wine is dreamy. The intrigue continues with a lasting saline savoriness and vibrant brightness. - Marcus
2015 vintage notes
94 point Wine Advocate "...a fragrant nose of red roses, Bing cherries and Provence herbs with hints of underbrush, lavender and damp soil. Medium-bodied, fine, fresh and delicately-played on the palate, it has a nice foundation of tannins and very appealing freshness that continues through the long finish."
93 points Vinous Media, Josh Raynolds: "Suave, spice- and mineral-accented red berry and potpourri aromas, accompanied by a hint of succulent herbs and a smoky nuance that emerges with air. Sweet and precise on the palate, offering energetic raspberry, cherry and spicecake flavors along with muskier rhubarb and floral pastille notes. The penetrating, red-fruit-driven finish shows excellent clarity, smooth tannins and strong persistence."
2014 vintage notes
94 points Wine Spectator: "Distinctly minerally, with a saline quality to the ripe raspberry and cherry flavors, coming together harmoniously against powdery tannins on the long, vivid finish. Exciting, promising a great future. Best from 2017 through 2024." - Wine Spectator
Elk Cove's newest single vineyard Pinot noir, from a site they purchased in 2014, is distinct and delicious Oregon Pinot. Recalling the wines his father, Joe, used to make, Adam Campbell incorporated 25% whole clusters which lend a savory wildness to the pure, expansive, red-fruited heart of Goodrich. - Marcus
