Winemaker Notes

The 2012 Kiana is garnet-ruby in color with dark cherry, earthy, anise, and floral aromas. This wine is juicy with a hint of cherry that lingers on the mid-palate, and a touch of citrus on the edges. The finish has fresh, zesty acidity, with a smooth tannin integration. We suggest opening an hour before drinking or decanting. Enjoy this wine now through 2019.

Pairs nicely with grilled salmon or pork tenderloin.

Blend: 100% Pinot Noir

Critical Acclaim

All Vintages
WE 92
Wine Enthusiast
A light, pretty rose color, this comes out with a burst of raspberries and roses, highlighted with a lick of chocolate. The back end shows some phenolic punch, putting a tight wrap on an elegant wine with the ability to improve through 2020 at least.
WS 92
Wine Spectator
Distinctive, spicy, complex and inviting, featuring a curled-up ball of blackberry, cherry, Earl Grey tea and spice flavors, pushing against refined tannins into a long and reverberating finish. Best from 2017 through 2022.

Wilfred Wong of Wine.com
The character of this wine really comes through as it shows excellent and tightly-knit varietal notes, the 2012 WillaKenzie Estate Kiana Pinot Noir brings its varietal class to the fore; red fruit, savory herbs and firsky chalk notes begin from start to finish. A lovely wine with lots to offer. (Tasted: March 10, 2015, San Francisco, CA)

WillaKenzie Estate, Oregon
WillaKenzie Estate Winery Video

WillaKenzie Estate is located in Oregon's Willamette Valley on rolling hillsides in the Chehalem Mountains. The winery was named after the Willakenzie soil on which the vineyards are planted to convey the influence that the soil imparts on the wine's flavors and aromas. The vineyards are planted with grapes of the Pinot family, mostly new Dijon clones of Pinot Noir and Pinot Gris from Alsace. Pinot Noir and Pinot Gris are cool climate grapes, which are particularly well adapted to Oregon.

Yamhill-Carlton, characterized by pastoral, rolling hills composed of shallow, quick-draining, ancient marine soil, is ideal for Pinot noir and other cool-climate-loving varieties. It is in the rain shadow of the Coast Range to its west, whose highest point climbs to an altitude of 3,500 feet. Yamhill-Carlton is actually surrounded by mountains on three sides: Chehalem Mountains to the north, the Dundee Hills to the east and the western Coast Range to its west, which, when it lets Pacific air through, serves to cool the region.

Vineyards grow on the ridges surrounding the two small communities of Yamhill and Carlton and cover about 1,200 acres of this 60,000 acre region, which roughly makes a horse-shoe shape on a map.
