Pinot Noir
King Family Vineyard, 2014

$ 48.00

Planted in 1998 to the east of the Laguna de Santa Rosa on huichica soil, this vineyard consistently produces rich, dark–fruited Pinot Noirs. Owners Ben and Carla King see to it that it is farmed with a high degree of attention to detail, a necessary ingredient in successful Pinot Noir production. This wine should age and develop beautifully in bottle for five to eight years after the vintage.

Winemaker's Notes

Typical dark fruits with a nice kick of red fruits and mild herbal spiciness is what you’re in for here. The vintage experienced very low rainfall in the early winter which could push things more into the higher concentration, darker fruits and more substantial structural tannins. However, with the very warm spell that occurred right before harvesting this site, we chose to harvest on the earlier side tempering these traits just enough to yield a graceful, energetic wine that still has its typical generous signature. Only 50 cases produced.

    The 2014 Pinot Noir King Vineyard is a decidedly floral, savory wine for Russian River. Readers should expect an understated, nuanced Pinot with plenty of structure, but also less overt fruit than is typical in this part of Sonoma. 91 points. Antonio Galloni
