King Estate Winery King Estate Pinot Noir 2013

Member Review by jtryka:

The wine is a bit lighter in color, with bright ruby color, classic Pinot. The nose presents aromas of green grass, tar and that classic Pinot twang (which can best be described as a combination of tart cherry, burnt toast and barnyard). The taste is pretty nice for a Pinot (and you know I'm not the biggest Pinot fan), with a rush of tart cherry, currant and some pepper spice that transition to some notes of tobacco and a hint of vanilla midpalate. The finish is very nice, with a reprise of tart fruit on a long, smooth and dry finish, that seems to linger a bit.
