Elouan means “good light”, reflective of the cool yet abundant sunshine found in this winegrowing region. The unique climate and diversity of soil types influence both canopy and fruit, forming the foundation of this wine’s northern character.
This 2015 Elouan Pinot Noir has greater depth and intensity than what is typical of Oregon Pinot Noir. Rich, ruby in color. Ripe cranberry, a touch of spice and fresh Bing cherry create an inviting bouquet with a subtle earthiness. The flavor profile shows red plum, bright cherry, minerality and dusty earth with a hint of sweet tobacco. The rustic layers of flavor are complemented by vanilla, spice and soft, refined tannins.
