King Estate Pinot Noir 2013
Wine EnthusiastLight strawberry fruit is heavily cloaked in flavors of butter and toast from eight months in oak. The wood flavors cover but do not entirely mask the bitter herbal notes, and the tannins seem disjointed and not fully integrated.
Wine SpectatorLight and refreshing, with a tangerine edge to the red berry and cinnamon flavors. Drink now. 26,433 cases made.
Wine AdvocateThe 2013 Signature Pinot Noir has inoffensive, clean brambly black and red fruit on the nose, a little simple but not bland. The palate is medium-bodied with dusty red fruit, quite grippy in the mouth with a dry, extracted finish.
