WHAT IS MY CVN NUMBER?

The Card Verification Number (CVN) is an extra code printed on your debit or credit card. CVN for Visa, MasterCard, BankCard and Diners is the final three digits of the number printed on the signature strip on the back of your card.

CVN for American Express appears as a separate 4-digit code printed on the front of your card.

As the CVN is not embossed (like the card number) the CVN is not printed on any receipts, hence it is not likely to be known by anyone other than the card owner.

CVN is an anti-fraud measure being introduced by credit card companies worldwide. You are required to enter the CVN each time a payment is made and you are not present to sign a receipt, as for on-line transactions. We ask you to fill out the CVN here to verify that you actually hold the card you are using for this transaction, and to avoid anyone other than you from shopping with your card number. All information you submit is transferred over secure SSL connections.

* The name of this code differs per card company. You may also know it as the Card Verification Code (CVC), the Card Security Code or the Personal Security Code. All names cover the same type of information.

Tasting Notes:

A brambly nose of black currents, tart cherries, and violets is met with spicy cardamom and cinnamon.

A core of juicy red cherry, cocoa nibs and leather on the palate is complemented by fine tannins evocative of dried leaves, pipe tobacco and anise.

Winemaking:

To make our Willamette Valley Pinot Noir, fruit from each vineyard block is fermented separately in small, temperature controlled steel tanks, hand punched down twice daily, and barreled in 20% new french oak barrels.

After 10 months of aging in 20% new oak, the wine we choose for the Willamette Valley Pinot is carefully blended to produce the most approachable, well-balanced Pinot Noir Elk Cove Vineyards make.

Vineyard:

Elk Cove Willamette Valley Pinot Noir is made with fruit from all five of Elk Cove'svineyard sites: Estate, Mount Richmond, Five Mountain, Clay Court and Windhill. They also purchase a small amount of select fruit from other producers who are longtime friends.

These sites are comprised of both Pommard and Dijon plant material, with multiple clones represented.

Because Elk Cove draw from vineyards representing all three of the major Willamette Valley soil types, we are able to pick and choose for different flavor components to make the best possible blend each year for our Willamette Valley Pinot Noir.

Some people call this making wine 'spice rack' style, Elk Cove usually just call it delicious with a goal for the perfect version of what they believe a Willamette Valley Pinot should be: a wine with freshness of fruit, well-integrated alcohol, and great concentration of flavour.

The Vintage:

Harvest 2015 brought ideal conditions, leading to generous yields and exceptionally concentrated fruit.

An early spring and clear weather led to a solid bloom that was three weeks early.

Thinning is such an important tool for Elk Cove to influence the course of ripening, and due to large initial cropsets, one Elk Cove fully utilized in 2015.

Thinned in early summer at the higher elevation sites, but waited until veraison to thin our lower elevation sites to slow down ripening and add 'hang-time', an important factor in the development of complex flavours in Pinot Noir.

Harvest 2015 was the earliest on record for the Northern Willamette Valley and Elk Cove were a little stunned when the first fruit hit the crushpad on September 8th.

Autumn brought relief from the heat with mild evenings and cool rainless nights that allowed for slow, even ripening.

Harvested fruit that was absolutely pristine and perfectly ripe, at a gradual pace that allowed Elk Cove to give full attention to each block.

This is regarded as equally as good as the spectacular 2012 and 2014 vintages, and early signs indicate just that, with the wines showing moderate alcohols, balanced acids and great concentration.
