King Estate 2009 Pinot Noir

King Estate 2009 Pinot Noir, $23.79-$27.99, 90 points, is a clear cranberry color throughout, and has a transparent rim.
The aroma began with cinnamon, and as it warmed there arose licorice, green pepper, and earth.
A light-plus bodied wine that carries bright red fruit, cranberry, strawberry, and cherry, with a consistent finish.
This is a good Pinot Noir that improved with air.

  1. Are they having a sale on King Estate up NH-way?

    Actually, this Pinot Noir sounds worth seeking out. What would you pair it with? Please don't say asparagus spears on a potato mash.

    I'm thinking salmon.

    1. I'm thinking like Eve Kendall: Brook trout!
      Maybe escargot.
