Available for:
Category Red Wine
Origin United States, Oregon, Willamette Valley
Brand King Estate
Alcohol/vol 13.5%
Representing the Willamette Valley's premier Pinot Noir vineyards, this wine's brick red color is as rich and complex as its provenance. Deep aromas of cranberry, lavender, forest floor and cinnamon are juxtaposed with warm caramel and toast elements imparted from 14 months of aging in French oak barrels. Tight tannins accompany a round mouth feel highlighted by bright cranberry and raspberry flavors which complement baking spice, toast, dry flower, and tobacco leaf elements. Enjoy now and until at least 2030.

Sourced from five vineyards, this is a tart, tightly focused wine with a core of ripe black-cherry fruit. The acidity is plentiful, adding highlights of orange peel to the mix. Decant if drinking over the next couple of years, or tuck it away for a bit more bottle age.

Sleek and tangy, with lively cherry, cranberry and sweet anise flavors that glide along the finish. Drink now through 2023. 463 cases made.
