Elouan Pinot Noir 2017
From the Wagner Family! This 2016 Elouan Pinot Noir is richer and more full bodied than what is typical of Oregon Pinot Noir, which generally is very lean. Bright ruby red in color. Ripe cranberry, sweet cinnamon and fresh cherry create an inviting bouquet, with a subtle earthiness. The palate shows texture and weight with firm acidity that carries the flavor through. The flavor profile shows red plum, bright cherry, minerality, dusty earth, and a hint of sweet tobacco, creating rustic layers of flavor with soft refined tannins.

Wine SpectatorA spirited little red, with lively cherry blossom and sassafras flavors that end on a snappy note. Drink now through 2022. 72,707 cases made.
Wine EnthusiastNot as successful as the previous vintage, this big-production wine leans heavily on flavors of vanilla and tobacco rather than its rather light and generic red berry fruit. It could be an inexpensive Pinot Noir from just about anywhere. Drink soon.
