An Elk Cove Bargain for Bay Area Pinotphiles

Elk Cove 2009 pinot noir

There’s an Elk Cove bargain for bay area pinotphiles at Artisan Wine Depot in Mountain View.  Elk Cove 2009 Willamette Valley pinot noir is on sale for $19.99 a bottle, about 1/3 off regular retail.  At that price it’s not just a bargain — it’s a steal.  Aromas of strawberries and brambleberries, with an explosion of red plums on the palate and a long mineral finish with silky tannins.  Great stuff, highly recommended.

We ran across Elk Cove during our two week Oregon trip last summer.  When we saw this one on sale, we jumped at the chance.  Artisan will ship to other states, so don’t be shy.  Get it while you can!
