Review: 2012 vintage note

Wine Spectator 94 points "Vibrant, spicy and minerally, with crushed-gravel overtones to the dark berry, black cherry and cocoa flavors, persisting easily against fine tannins on the long, expressive and open finish. Best from 2016 through 2022."

2010 vintage notes, Wine Spectator 92 points: "Light and lively, with expressive raspberry, clotted cream and mocha flavors that mingle harmoniously as the finish glides on. The tannins are polished, and the flavors emerged easily. Drink now through 2018. - H.S.

Five Mountain Vineyard was purchased by Elk Cove Vineyards in 2005 after leasing the site for several years. Previously only a component of the Elk Cove Willamette Valley blend, after taking full control of the vineyard the winery has found certain lots worthy of single vineyard status.

This historic vineyard was planted in 1978 by the Ponzi family. The original 4.2 acres of old vines are comprised of Pommard clone and the entire vineyard is set on a steep southeast slope in the Chehalem Mountains AVA, overlooking “five mountains” in the Cascade Range most widely seen from the Willamette Valley.

This vineyard was an important element to the early Ponzi Reserve Pinots and has also been a single vineyard selection from a number of premier Oregon wineries over the years. This site is sustainably farmed by Elk Cove Vineyards and now comprises a total of 30 acres including the original old vine Pinot noir, Dijon clone Pinot noir, Pinot gris, Pinot blanc, Riesling, Gewurztraminer, and Muscat.
