The 2016 vintage is a gorgeous, mouth-watering example from another stellar Oregon growing season. This has a pale straw color with glistening edges. Aromas of ripe pear, fresh cantaloupe and honeysuckle fill the glass. Juicy flavors of just ripe pear, wild honey and pineapple are framed by a balance of viscous texture and clean, racy acidity. This wine will age beautifully through the next decade.

Wine EnthusiastKing Estate consistently delivers, and this is a delicious, creamy, textural wine. Full-throttle fruit combines lemon, lime, pineapple and candied citrus rind, underscored by refreshing minerality. Give it a slight chill and drink now through 2020.

Wine AdvocateThe 2016 Pinot Gris has uncomplicated apple and baking bread notes with a waft of fennel seed. Medium-bodied, dry, youthful and refreshing on the palate, it gives nice purity and finishes clean.
