Wine Enthusiast Review
Rated 90
All of the single-vineyard Pinots from WVV are low in alcohol in 2011, and in some instances, it works in their favor. This Elton bottling is focused and moderately tannic. That tannic grip underscores cherry flavors and holds your attention. A hint of pine needle slips in, adding complexity. This could be cellared another five or six years.

Wine Tasting Notes
One of Oregon's top ten vineyards, Elton Vineyard is owned by Dick and Betty O'Brien. They planted the vineyard, beginning in 1983 on land inherited from Betty's parents, Elton and Peggy Ingram, hence the name Elton Vineyard and the address Ingram Lane. This wine opens with rich aromas of blackberry, marionberry and cherry cola, followed by earthy notes of mushroom, forest floor and rose petal. Flavors mirror aromas leading with lively cherry, black fruit and cassis. Smooth tannins and bright acidity create a rich mouthfeel and well-rounded body that leads to the mouthwatering cherry finish. Peak drinkability 2014-2018
