Kings Ridge Willamette Pinot Noir 2017 (Willamette Valley, Oregon) "...blackberry, cherry, cola..."
Kings Ridge Wines is owned by Union Wine Company, a partnership created by two veterans of the Oregon wine industry. Ryan Harms, owner and executive winemaker is driven by a personal passion for well valued wine and a philosophy that the best wines are a union of gifted winemaking skills and precise farming techniques.
Grown in the heart of the Willamette Valley, this wine truly reflects the character of the region. We source our fruit from vineyards that impart their own distinctive style, a combination of rich red fruit flavors with freshness and vibrancy. Careful blending creates this uniquely Oregon Pinot Noir. The combination of cool and warm climates found in these regions produces a wine stacked with intense raspberry, cherry and floral flavors and aromas.
The 2017 Pinot Noir grapes were fermented in vessels from 1.5-ton boxes to 35-ton closed-top tanks. They were punched down or pumped over daily and pressed at dryness. The wine was aged in a combination of stainless steel tank, once filled and neutral French oak barrels for 10 months, then blended and bottled.
