Elouan, the result of California winemakers venturing up to Oregon, one of the world’s renowned Pinot Noir regions. The 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: Willamette, Umpqua and Rogue Valleys, which harmonize beautifully when blended together. 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 Pinot Noirs from other regions.
Harmonious and elegant on the palate with flavors, of rich red plum, bright cherry, subtle earthiness and a hint of sweet tobacco, creating complex layers with soft, refined tannins.
Bright acidity with firm red berry fruit flavors combined with tart, dried apricot and concentrated minerality. The mid-palate is rich and expansive with fresh acidity that carries flavors of freeze-dried berries and clementine rind through the long-lasting finish.
Lush fruit flavors of dark plums, cherries and blackcurrant jam are framed by a velvety mouthfeel and a sweet, red fruit core with touches of spice and earthiness. Good structure and depth of flavor, with soft tannins balanced by a fresh lingering acidity.
We have managed to achieve ripe fruit characteristics, while retaining the quintessential Oregon Pinot Noir subtleties and nuances of bright acidity and a rich earthiness to the wine.
