94 points Wine Advocate: "The 2014 Pinot Noir Reserve is a barrel selection from various Elk Cove's vineyards, and this year it constitutes eight barrels. It has an intense bouquet with red and black fruit, touches of undergrowth and wilted violet petals that are very well defined. The palate is medium-bodied with supple red and black fruit, the oak neatly embroidered into the fruit, very smooth in texture with a touch of allspice and clove towards the sustained finish. It is tightly coiled at the moment, but I am sure it will age into a very serious Pinot Noir."

A true reserve bottling. In their 40 years, Elk Cove has made a reserve only 6 times.

2012 vintage note

A classic in the making. Mouthwatering red fruit and savory spice on the nose lead to a rich, focused cherry and raspberry that is pure Pinot. I would roll this fruit home in a wheelbarrow. Subtle nutmeg resonates on the long finish; the tannins are beautifully integrated on the incredibly silky-smooth finish. Regardless of what other 2012 Pinots are released, this will be in my top 10 of the vintage. I love this wine. - Andy

Only 171 cases were produced. Elk Cove selected their favorite, most stunning barrels from their estate vineyards: Mt. Richmond, La Bohéme, Roosevelt, Clay Court, and Windhill.
