Kingston Family Vineyards Pinot Noir Tobiano 2008
I have always taken pride in offering good, serious (well a little serious anyway) wine for a reasonable price. The 2008 Tobiano is definitely a little serious, with loads of ripe raspberry, strawberry and cherry pie flavors and aromas as well as the usual “gout de Casablanca,” which I often call a savory or mineral or smoky note. It is this savory note that I think lends a little seriousness to the wine, and separates it from the more straightforwardly fruity Pinot Noirs that I work with here at home in California. It is a fairly big wine, and like all the Kingston reds, it will benefit from a little air. But I would say that it is more a wine for enjoying now, while it is youthful and fresh, than it is for laying down. ¡Salud!
The Kingston Family first came to Chile in the early 1900's. Carl John Kingston, the patriarch and pioneer, came to Chile looking for copper (good idea) and gold (crazy idea). "Gramps" Kingston was an American originally from Central Mine, Michigan, which exists only as a ghost town today in Michigan's upper peninsula.
