King Estate 2018 Rosé of Pinot Noir, Willamette Valley, $20

By on May 3, 2019

The Kings of Pinot Noir in Oregon ruled the rosé portion of the Cascadia with this lovely offering in a pale salmon wardrobe by winemaker Brent Stone. A product of Washington State University, Stone used Pinot Noir from the King family’s Demeter-USA certified Biodynamic estate vineyard near Eugene as well as Pinot Noir from other organically farmed sites in the Willamette Valley. Strawberry gummy bears, lemonade and river pebbles on the nose extend onto the palate, where the structure is spunky with a long and bright farewell. This merited the award for Best Rosé at the 2019 Cascadia International Wine Competition.
