Just a couple of wines from this Oregon producer. I was unmoved by
the rather simple Pinot Gris but liked the new world-style Pinot Noir.
1999 Pinot Gris
Pale colour. Clean, fruity nose. Rounded palate with fruit and a
touch of spice; otherwise a bit simple and one-dimensional.
1999 Kings Ridge Pinot Noir
Bright cherry fruit nose. The palate shows a bit of tar and some
tannin along with sweet fruit. Quite impressive but pretty new world
in style. Very good+
