Tasting Notes

A lovely garnet color in the glass, this wine has aromas of cherry, plum, toast and clove. Raspberry, spice and nutmeg chime in on the palate to create a medium bodied wine with great overall structure. Acidity and tannins are balanced, leading to a nice and lasting finish.

Vineyard Notes

Pfeiffer Vineyard and King Estate have a winemaking collaboration dating back to 1992. In fact, Pfeiffer has sold its grapes to no other winery for a quarter century. Situated in a unique microclimate in the hills of the Oregon Coast Range, this vineyard produces wines with clean, crisp texture and fruit forward flavors that are simply delicious.

Winemaker Notes

Whole clusters are destemmed, then subjected to a 48-hour cold soak with daily pump overs. For further concentration of flavor and color, 10% of juice is bled off the red wine during fermentation using the Saignée method. Fermentation occurs in stainless steel open top tanks with daily punch downs. The wine underwent full malolactic fermentation in barrel after completion of primary fermentation. Aged in French oak for 14 months, 30% new.
