Kings Ridge 2013 Pinot Noir, Willamette Valley, $18

By on August 16, 2015

Union Wine Co.-2013-Kings Ridge Pinot NoirThe middle tier of Ryan Harms’ Union Wine Co., operation near the Tualatin River National Wildlife Refuge targets vineyards from the Willamette Valley, and it, too, represents a nice value alongside his Underwood brand. There’s some complexity as well within its nose of fresh cherry and boysenberry that picks up Baker’s chocolate, light toast, moist earth and saddle leather. The drink is rich and round with black cherry and black currant, supported by slaty tannins, ripe raspberry acidity and a pinch of sweet herbs.
