Pinot Noir

Elk Run is proud to be the only grower of Pinot Noir in Maryland. This Pinot Noir comes from our Cold Friday Vineyard located on the south side of the estate. This wine exhibits the classic cherry and black currant fruit expected in any quality Pinot Noir. It is a soft wine with many complex nuances, exhibiting a very Burgundian style.

Our first vintage in 1998 was selected as Baltimore’s Best Red.
