The December issue of Wine & Spirits Magazine just hit newsstands and we have three 90+ point scores listed for Signature and Acrobat Pinot Gris, and Domaine Pinot Noir. Earlier this year Wine & Spirits also named us one of the 2010 Wineries of the Year, and on another occassion selected us as one of the 2010 Top Value Brands.
92 Points | King Estate
2009 Oregon Signature Pinot Gris
Bright and exuberant as soon as it hits the glass, this wine has vibrant and persistent tangerine and white peach scents. On the palate it has a fresh mineral bite, the flavors more in the vein of citrus, the acidity lively and on point.
91 Points | King Estate
2008 Oregon Domaine Pinot Noir
Earthy and bright at once, this estate pinot has aromas of cherry blossoms and horehound. The flavors are precise and lean – dark cherry and rosemary – with moderate oak filling out the middle of the wine. For a rosemary roasted pork loin.
90 Points | Acrobat
2009 Oregon Pinot Gris (Best Buy)
Clean and citrusy in scent, with a soft leesy note, this brisk gris has a peppery phenolic bite that makes it ideal for pairing with whole-roasted fish.
