Inscription is a vow of Authenticity.
The King family has sourced the Pinot Noir grapes for this wine from some of the most acclaimed vineyards in Oregon’s Willamette Valley. This is classic Willamette Valley Pinot Noir, with lush red fruit and flavors of forest and earth – a showcase for the unique and authentic place of Oregon in the wine world.
Small-Lot Separation Approach
100% of King Estate’s Pinot Noir lots, blocks and clones are kept separate through the entire winemaking process before blending. Each lot has to be managed individually and we maximize quality across our entire vineyard portfolio and give our winemakers more tools for blending.
Our winemaking team tastes daily throughout fermentation and barrel aging. After fermentation, every lot will be tasted at least once per month. We typically have 200 Pinot Noir lots that are ultimately graded on a 100-point-scale and assigned to a wine program.
“Our small lot separation approach and grading process is unique to a winery of our size. We only use small fermenters and grow more fruit than we need. This allows us to be very selective and only choose lots that meet our high standards, leaving us with the “cream of the crop” for our Pinot Noir wines.”

Bright cherry, raspberry and strawberry notes greet the nose, along with fresh rose petals, baking spices and hints of earth. Bright acidity on the entrance combines with the showy red fruit and flavors of forest floor, rhubarb, sage and toast on the palate. Round, supple tannins provide an exceptionally good transition to the finish, with structured tannins providing nice body and length.
