KING ESTATE Pinot Noir 'Backbone' 2013

The 2013 King Estate 'Backbone' Pinot Noir is an absolutely gorgeous wine made by the winemaking team of Brent Stone and Spencer Spectnagel. Weighing in at 13.5% alcohol, this wine begins with aromatics of black cherry, wild blackberry and black truffle. This leads to flavors of black cherry, black olive, black truffle, red currant and orange rind. This shows wonderful flavor range. The finish is exceedingly long as this great Pinot Noir wine will cellar for well over a deacade. (Best 2017-2029) - June, 2017 (OB)
