PINOT ENVY 2017 PINOT NOIR WILLAMETTE VALLEY BY KING ESTATE
Freud once said that sometimes a cigar is just a cigar. This wine is not just a wine. Pinot Envy is carefully crafted from the finest fruit in Oregon’s Willamette Valley.
The deep garnet hue of Pinot Envy gives way to aromas of black cherry, plum, and licorice. Supple, balanced tannins accompany dark fruit flavors of blackberry and black cherry. Structured acidity imbues this wine with a long finish, highlighted by subtle clove elements.
These 100% Pinot Noir grapes are meticulously hand-sorted before being de-stemmed. A cold soak for 48 hours before stainless steel fermentation with daily punch downs and pump overs is followed by malolactic fermentation. These distinct vineyards lots are barrel-aged for 18 months in French oak barrels before we make the final blend.
