Rich, fruit-forward aromas like ripe cherries and strawberry pie, with hints of cinnamon, vanilla and mocha. Flavors of ripe strawberries and dark chocolate, followed by earthy and spicy notes of forest floor and clove.

Winemaker Notes
The 2015 vintage is a brilliant example of Pinot Noir from a consistent and warmer than average Western Oregon growing season. In the glass, there is a garnet-colored center with bright ruby edges. The nose has rich, fruit-forward aromas like ripe cherries and strawberry pie, with hints of cinnamon, vanilla and mocha. The palate echoes with ripe strawberries and dark chocolate up front, followed by earthy and spicy notes of forest floor and clove. Expect this to age beautifully through the next decade.

Production Notes
Destemmed, cold-soaked, punched down and pumped over, the 2015 vintage underwent malolactic fermentation in stainless steel tanks before being aged for 6 months in French oak. 2015 was the earliest harvest in King Estate history. A dry, mild winter led to early bud break in mid to late March, about two weeks ahead of normal. With minimal frost damage to worry about during winter, there was an abundance of fruit set by early June. Warm temperatures throughout spring and summer kept the vines ahead of their seasonal average maturation while a slight reprieve from the heat arrived around harvest and helped to preserve acidity and allowed for optimal flavor development.
