King Estate Pinot Noir 2016

SKU 2028


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.

Wine EnthusiastThis is a sleek, subtle and savory wine. Tangy black raspberry and black cherry fruit is lifted with vivid, citrus acidity. Barrel aged for up to 10 months in French oak, it's a fine, early-drinking effort at a favorable price.

Wine SpectatorPrecise and well-built, showing expressive raspberry, orange tea and spice flavors that finish with refined tannins. Drink now through 2023.

Wine AdvocateThe 2016 Pinot Noir is pale to medium ruby-purple with a nose of wild blackberries, blackcurrant bud, tar and wood smoke. Medium-bodied, it's black fruited and very earthy in the mouth, with slightly grippy tannins and plenty of juicy acidity, finishing long.
