Tasting Notes

2016 King Estate Willamette Valley Pinot Noir has a dark garnet color with cherry red edges. The bouquet jumps out of the glass with ripe strawberries and raspberries with secondary notes of black tea, and earthen aromas. Rich dark cherries abound on the palate with fresh strawberry, sweet oak and vanilla flavors. This wine has a round and full mouthfeel upfront with supple tannins and a fresh, generous finish. Enjoy now through at least 2030.

Vineyard Notes

King Estate Willamette Valley Pinot Noir reflects an excellence recognized worldwide. Made with the best selection of grapes each year, the 2016 vintage was sourced primarily from King Estate’s certified Biodynamic® vineyard as well as a handful of like-minded sustainably-farmed vineyards throughout the Willamette Valley.

Winemaker Notes

These 100% Pinot Noir grapes are meticulously hand-sorted before being de stemmed. Stainless steel fermentation with daily punch downs and pump overs is followed by malolactic fermentation. These distinct vineyards lots are barrel-aged for 8-10 months in French oak barrels before we make the final blend. This blending approach allows our winemaking team to create a wine that best represents the beauty of Willamette Valley Pinot Noir.
