We really enjoy this Pinot Noir! It is one of our favorites!
3/14/2017 – What is your recommendation for opening the 2014 Roosevelt?Thanks
Response From Elk Cove Vineyards: Hi Irv,Our general recommendation when considering cellaring our Single Vineyard Pinot Noirs is to open 5-10 years after harvest, or 2019 to 2024 for the 2014 vintage.Our Roosevelt typically continues to improve even longer (15-20 years) because it's so concentrated. The high amount of new oak (70%) is also protective. We've recently enjoyed a bottle of 2003 Roosevelt and it still had a lot of fruit to it.On the other hand, as the 2014s are just starting to age, they are tasting really approachable, so we suspect they may age a little more quickly and peak on the earlier side, say 8-12 years on. It was a spectacular year, but it was also a warm year, and we're still learning how these warmer vintages in the Willamette Valley will cellar.Sometimes opening a bottle is the only way to really know how a wine has aged, so we always welcome tasting notes when you do open an older bottle of Elk Cove.
