About the Producer:
Produced by Joe Wagner, youngest son of Chuck Wagner of Caymus fame, and himself the creator of Quilt, Carne Humana, Belle Glos and Meiomi, Elouan is the result of California winemakers venturing up to Oregon, one of the world's renowned grape-growing regions. The goal: to produce Pinot Noir and Chardonnay with depth of flavor, vibrancy and suppleness. For this wine we brought together fruit from three distinct terrains along Oregons premiere Western vineyards which harmonize beautifully when blended as one. The diversity of these districts along with a lengthy growing season create wines with intense structure, while maintaining a vibrant acidity that sets them apart from other wines.

Elouan means 'good light,' reflecting the cool yet abundant sunshine found in this winegrowing region. The unique climate and diversity of soil types influence both canopy and fruit, forming the foundation of this wine's northern character.

Tasting Notes:
Dark ruby red in color, this wine opens up with aromas of dark cherry, persimmon, dark chocolate, and sweet pipe tobacco. The palate is rich, robust, and well-balanced, with solid structure and intense flavors of bing cherry, cocoa, candied cranberry, and boysenberry. Superb depth and concentration complement rich tannins and lead into a smooth medium finish.

Ratings & Reviews

Wine Spectator:
"A toasty and zesty quaff, with jammy raspberry and spice flavors that finish with zip. Best after 2027. 87,505 cases made." - TF (web only 2021)
