Description

“High up in the mountainous Fort-Ross Seaview appellation of the West Sonoma Coast there is little resemblance to other areas from which we make wine. Elliott is situated on the northern flanks of this area at 1500 feet elevation. Coastal fog winds its way up the Gualala River bringing the influence of the Pacific right up to the feet of the vineyard. This planting of the Mt Eden clone is some of the oldest on the coast. Small berries the size of a pea give depth and concentration while retaining natural acidity. Shy in its youth, the wine reveals layers upon layers of the best the coast can give. Monopole.

Absolutely glorious bouquet of perfumed black cherries, blueberry, potpourri and light violet aromas that are understated and focused. The palate is light-bodied with an earth driven opening, and a very balanced and sensual lingering palate. Pure, as Elliott always is, and mineral-driven red fruit defines the effortless finish. Stunning.”

"Elliott Vineyard is tucked between Hellenthal Vineyards and the easternmost boundary of the Hirsch Vineyard. It was planted in 1981 to the Mt Eden clone of Pinot Noir. Nice old vines! Transparent ruby. Quite a sweet nose with just a hint of sweatiness and a very readable palate with fine tannins pretty evident on the finish."
