 Tasted by tbailey540 on 4/2/2007 & rated 93 points: very nice balance, good fruit need to find more (952 views)
 Tasted by Vino Me on 5/8/2004 & rated 92 points: For the first year this a 100% organic wine I believe. Interesting brett characteristics in the nose. Wet earth, spice and chocolate notes. Firm tannins so hold this a while. My favorite PN of the tasting. 92 points. The 1999 King Estate Reserve showed well at last years Grand Tour as well. (901 views)

Pinot Noir

Varietal character (Appellation America) | Varietal article (Wikipedia)
Pinot Noir is the Noble red grape of Burgundy, capable of ripening in a cooler climate, which Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot will not reliably do. It is unpredictable and difficult both to grow and to vinify, but results in some of the finest reds in the world. It is believed to have been selected from wild vines two thousand years ago. It is also used in the production of champagne. In fact, more Pinot Noir goes into Champagne than is used in all of the Cote d'Or! It is also grown in Alsace, Germany, the U.S., Canada, Australia, New Zealand, Croatia, Serbia, Italy, Austria, and so forth, with varying degrees of success.
