This Pinot Noir is deep garnet, with a bright ruby tint. Aromas of cherry, eucalyptus, raspberry and spice fill the glass. The palate exudes flavors of pomegranate, vanilla, cherry, oak and lavender, with a soft rich entry, nice texture, good weight and a long lively finish.
Earthy & Spicy
I am well aware that Oregon is famous for their Pinot Noirs. Since I have never tried any wines from King Estate I thought that I would give this wine a go. I tried this wine with a friend not soon after it arrived at my door. We both found it to be delightful. It is an earthy style which I would classify to be more of a Burgundian style of Pinot with lots of deep strawberry and jam aromas in the glass. This is a Pinot that many newbies to the wine scene may not be ready for, especially if they are only familiar with a Mark West style of Pinot Noir. I will assuredly buy this wine again and perhaps try some of the other offerings from King Estate!
Smooth & Supple
Light & Fruity
Nice Oregon pinot, they have a great dessert wine also. This pinot is well balanced, nice finish.
