This product is currently sold out.
Inspired by trips to Europe where the "wine and food spoke", David and Ginny Adelsheim first planted a 15 acre site in the north Willamette Valley in 1972 with Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, Riesling and passion. Adelsheim is amongst the region’s founders. The couple shared a dream with a handful of families that Oregon’s climate and land could one day produce serious wines. In 1978, the first commercial wines were produced. Over the next four decades, Adelsheim Vineyard has grown up with Oregon’s wine industry.
Elizabeth is the daughter of David and Ginny Adelsheim (the sketch on the label was done by Ginny). The name “Elizabeth’s Reserve” was first used in 1986 to designate the blend of the best barrels of Pinot noir. From 1987 until 1999 it designated a single vineyard wine, but in 2000 onwards returned to a “best of winery” reserve - the best barrels from the best lots.
Adelsheim ‘Elizabeth’s Reserve’ Pinot Noir 2012 is sophisticated and stylish - a perfect illustration of Oregon's power and elegance. A rich, broadly textural but lifted Pinot Noir that is both elegant and intense. There's layered aromas of red raspberries, fresh Oregon strawberries, brown spice and cedar. Its aromas are reflected on a palate that speaks of purity and elegance, and is exceptionally balanced with textural complexity, fine and silky tannin structure that finishes with a long, elegant and persistent finish. This wine will pair beautifully with the Pinot noir classics - lamb, duck, grilled salmon, and aged cheeses.
