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. Pair with roasted lamb chops with garlic and herb red potatoes, wild mushroom polenta, or goat cheese and walnut endive salad with raspberry balsamic drizzle.

Wine EnthusiastThose who enjoy Joe Wagner's California-style Pinot Noirs will find this quite comfortable. Its tart wild berry fruit comes with a plush streak of vanilla. Some coffee and tobacco highlights follow. There's plenty of power and flavor, but don't look for varietal specificity.

VinousSickly sweet and disturbingly viscous in texture, with a finish that, unfortunately, doesn't want to let up. It was a thankless chore to taste this beverage, which is apparently made from grapes.
