2016 King Estate Kennel Chardonnay
This is our inaugural release of Kennel Vineyard Chardonnay. Only 77 cases were produced. ¬This has a golden straw color with gorgeous aromatics of Bartlett pear, lemon and honeysuckle with a sweet French oak frame. On the palate, there are satisfying flavors of pear, wild honey, vanilla and tinges of lemon zest. Enjoy now until 2025.
2017 King Estate Foris Pinot Blanc
The first thing one notices about this delightful wine is the pale straw color which belies its full, round taste. Scents of white peach, nutmeg, vanilla and flowers are pricked with a dash of sage. ¬The wine opens up even more on the palate with tastes of brioche, cream, apple, sweet oak and citrus. Aged in 50% stainless steels and 50% in French and American oak, the wine is well rounded and viscous up front, with the oak tannin and acidity integrated nicely to linger on the palate. Enjoy now until at least 2023.
2015 King Estate Roussanne Marsanne
The vivid yellow color of this wine is an eye-catching clue to what lies ahead. One the nose, fruit-forward notes of white peach and cantaloupe are balanced against savory vanilla bean and toast components. ¬is wine is rich and round on the palate, where layers of honeysuckle, pear and sweet French oak provide nuanced complexity to the mid-palate, with an elegant finish. Enjoy now until 2020, or longer.
