King Estate Willamette Valley Pinot Noir

Wine Enthusiast 89 / 100 2003 Vintage Tasted: January 2006 King Estate is rebranding its Pinot Noir portfolio, removing the reserve tier. This âSignatureâ bottling has a greater proportion (almost two-thirds) of estate-grown fruit. It's a firm and compact blend of berries and pomegranate, hard and mildly metallic. There are traces of bark and soil, and the structure is expected to improve significantly over the following 35 years. 87 out of 100 Tom Cannavan Vintage 2000 Tasted: January 2004 (2004) King Estate's entry-level Pinot Noir is a blend of estate and bought grapes. It is aged for 12 months in French oak that is about a quarter fresh. It's pretty rounded and sweet, with a lot of vanilla and a faint cherry taste. It's medium-bodied, with a lovely depth of fruit and a silky, black chocolate solidity on the tongue. The tannins are modest yet effective, and this accessible, juicy Pinot has wine excellent balance.

The majority of Oregon wine grapes are grown around 60 miles inland from the Pacific coast, sandwiched between two protective mountain ranges: the magnificent volcanic Cascades to the east and the more modest and wooded Coast Range to the west. The Coast Range offers some protection from coastal winds and rain, so assisting in maintaining temperate temperatures.

Willamette Valley's King Estate Pinot Noir is a rich burgundy hued wine with strong red overtones. Aromas of rich black cherry, plum, and licorice pervade the nose. Dark fruit flavors such as blackberry and black cherry dominate the tongue, with a faint clove aftertaste. This is rich, supple, and complex, with well-integrated tannins and delightful acidity. Take advantage of this offer until at least 2030. All

King Estate Pinot Noir Domaine Willamette Valley 2014

I got the opportunity to taste some of the 2014 vintage from barrel with Kevin Sommelet, King Estate's previous Burgundian winemaker. The year 2014 was warm, and the Domaine label reflects this with an expressive nose brimming with juicy black cherries and plums, followed by deeper, woodsier scents of old leather, dried roses, and fragrant baking spice. The attack is focused and aggressive, but there is also grace here, with fruit balanced by balanced acidity and a serious flourish of iron ore at the conclusion. 13.5 percent ABV|

King Estate Willamette Valley Pinot Noir 2018

King Estate Willamette Valley Pinot Gris exemplifies an international standard of quality. Each year, the finest grapes are selected, and the 2018 vintage was obtained mostly from King Estate's certified Biodynamic and organic vineyard, as well as a few other like-minded sustainably farmed vineyards around the Willamette Valley. The 2018 King Estate Pinot Gris is a stunning example of the variety from an exceptional Oregon vintage. This beautiful straw-colored wine is fragrant with fresh Bartlett pear, juicy white peach, wildflowers, and crushed gravel. There are quick fruit flavors like as peach, Key lime, nectarine, and ripe pear that dance on the palate. Fresh acidity and luscious viscosity counterbalance these fruit notes. The finish is exquisite and lingering, begging to be matched with soft cheeses and charcuterie. Consume today and for at least the next decade.

Each vintage, winemakers have the option of fermenting and aging single barrels... Each vintage, winemakers have the option of fermenting and aging different vineyard blocks and blocks separately until they are combined. Each vineyard provides distinct subtleties and character to this blend, elevating it beyond the sum of its parts.

The 2018 crop season's spring and summer were among the hottest and driest on record in the Willamette Valley. With the arrival of cold fall weather, the Pinot Noir fruit reached its optimum ripeness. Gentle treatment and de-stemming in the winemaking kept the freshness and texture desired in Pinot Noir. The juice was fermented on the skins for 15-20 days at an internal temperature of 80-90F before being gently pressed to stainless steel for settling. After seven months of aging in a combination of oak and stainless steel barrels, the wine was racked clean prior to mixing and bottling.

Tom Fitzpatrick, leve's winemaker, owns three vineyards in the Willamette Valley. He produces ultra-low-volume wines by combining his expertise working for other vineyards in the Napa Valley, New Zealand, and Washington State. The wine: Three Martin's rose of pinot noir is not available all year, but when it is, it is absolutely worth trying. I drank the 2016 vintage and like how it starts somewhat sweet but finishes dry and full-bodied.

King Estate Willamette Valley Pinot Noir 2017

The majority of Oregon wine grapes are grown around 60 miles inland from the Pacific coast, sandwiched between two protective mountain ranges: the magnificent volcanic Cascades to the east and the more modest and wooded Coast Range to the west. The Coast Range offers some protection from coastal winds and rain, so assisting in maintaining temperate temperatures.

The Willamette Valley is a pastoral, varied scenery of green, bucolic rolling hills, spectacular forestlands, and small, independent, friendly wine producers. As a pioneer in environmental care, the valley boasts some of the most protective land use rules in the country, with more than two-thirds of its grapes managed responsibly and organically. While the region has a chilly, continental climate and is significantly impacted by the Pacific Ocean's cold, wet air, its mild, dry summers enable Pinot noir to develop steadily and evenly. Willamette Valley Pinot noir's promise continues to draw serious growers and winemakers both locally and internationally, as the finished wines inevitably get praise from experts and enthusiasts. With flavors ranging from delicate dried cherry, raspberry, and hibiscus to more robust truffle, mocha, plum, and spice, a great Willamette Valley Pinot noir is the epitome of both character and elegance.

Pinot Noir, a grape variety that is notoriously difficult to cultivate. The second variety is the ever-popular Pinot Gris, which is best known for its origins in the Elzas. This area is 475 hectares in size. The most significant of the 75 âwineriesâ that produce pinot gris are located not in the Willamette Valley, but even farther south, in the sparsely populated Lorane valley. This winery is known as King Estate. It was founded thirty years ago by Ed King jr. (1921), a successful aviator and winemaker. Ed King III (1950) is the current owner. The Dome is situated on a 1033-hectare piece of land and is surrounded by a spectacular cliff with wijngaards ranging in height from 240 to 335 meters. The ridge protects the wind from Noord-Westelijke direction, which may have a negligible effect on the climate. The lovely castle-like keldercomplex amongst the wijngaarden is awe-inspiring and a feast for the eyes.

90 pts (WA) 2016 was another warm year with fully ripe fruit, allowing for a combination of black fruit (boysenberry, black cherry, blueberry, and cassis) and red fruit flavors in the wine (cherry, cranberry and raspberry). This imparts more depth and focus to the wine, as well as a perfect balance in which all components work harmoniously together. This creates a synergy in the wine, which makes it much more pleasurable. The wine is full-bodied and complex, with aromas and flavors of black cherry, boysenberry, cranberry, cassis, and white pepper. The finish is a sweet taste derived from toasted oak barrels used to age French wine. This wine is an excellent match with delicious red meats. It will develop more during the next four to six years.

Notes from the Winemaker

These grapes, which are 100 percent Pinot Noir, are rigorously hand-sorted. Each lot is fermented in small quantities and contains up to 20% entire clusters. Following stainless steel fermentation with daily punch downs and pump overs, malolactic fermentation is performed. Before blending, these separate vineyard lots are barrel-aged for 8-10 months in French oak barrels.

Oregon wines are a success story of the contemporary era. Only 50 years ago, winemakers in Oregon started experimenting with fine-wine grape varieties, and now, Oregon wine is recognized for its remarkable quality by wine enthusiasts and professionals worldwide. The state has developed a reputation for small, family-owned vineyards that place a premium on quality and sustainability. Frequently likened to France's Burgundy area, Oregon wine country has proven to be an ideal location for cultivating Burgundy's signature grapes, Pinot Noir and Chardonnay, as well as the cool-climate grapes cultivated in France's Alsace region, notably Pinot Gris.
