Tasting Notes

Croft has been a King Estate partnering vineyard since 1992 and is widely respected as one of the premier vineyards in the Willamette Valley. This 2015 vintage Pinot Noir has a dark crimson color with a pretty nose of ripe red fruits like raspberry and ripe cherries. There are pleasing secondary aromas of forest floor, black tea and cigar box. The palate comes alive with focused flavors of fresh cherries, raspberry and earth notes, framed by a pleasant note of freshly baked bread. This wine has firm tannins and balanced acidity that can be enjoyed now and until 2030.
