Received this as a gift from an Oregon friend as part of a King Estate variety pack. A nice light, sweet fruit, cherry/strawberry wine without any real spice or earthiness. Still enjoyable for what it is just not my preferred style of pinot noir.
Notes of cherry, earth, and smoke. Relatively thin. Intense but rather short finish. Not a lot of complexity. Rather strongly acidic, so not a sipping Pinot, but did alright with a variety of foods. Okay for a mid-week dinner.
Found to be fairly earthy initially on palate but mellowing to slight earthy flavors before an abrupt finish. Little to no complexity otherwise, but good acidity allowed to match many different foods. We had Korean BBQ short ribs. Drink now.
Sorry King Estates. I have enjoyed many of your wines but this was way overpriced for the wine. No nose, very light and little taste. It wasn't bad, just nothing there to enjoy. I will be more careful in selecting King Estates in the future. Very disappointing.
Too light and fruity for our taste. A bit of cherry and cranberry with some floral notes, but no real earthiness, tobacco, or smoke... which we happen to like. Very much on the light side, and a shortish finish to boot. Not terrible, but I doubt we'll be buying more.
