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.
Rich, dark and intense fruit flavors take top billing in this 2016 Elouan Pinot Noir, a wine that beautifully reflects the warm and dry growing season. Dark ruby in color, the wine powers up with aromatics of plum pie, mixed-berry jam and smoky, game-bird characteristics that set the stage for flavors of cherry, blackberry, boysenberry and smoked bacon. The balance is excellent, with solid structure, superb depth and concentration, rich tannins, and a nice smoky, earthy finish.
