Winemaker Notes

One of America's finest white wines, our Domaine Pinot Gris is 100% steel tank fermented and aged for 11 months on the lees.

Critical Acclaim

CG 92
Connoisseurs' Guide

This juicy, impressively filled Pinot Gris features strong themes of white peaches with complexing accents of jasmine and hints of wet stones. It is full and slightly rounded in feel with balancing acids tempering its slight residual sweetness. It is by any and all standards a deep and more interesting effort than most of its varietal peers, and it should prove a most versatile match with a broad range of foods.

WS 90
Wine Spectator

Light and juicy, brimming with Bartlett pear, cream and cashew flavors that keep singing through the long, charming finish. Drink now. 7,800 cases made.

W&S 90
Wine & Spirits

King's '08 estate gris has a broad scent of white peaches and sweet, fleshy tropical fruit. The flavors are rich, but the wine has a zippy finish, with the cut to handle veal loin.

Responsible for the vast majority of American wine production, if California were a country, it would be the world’s fourth largest wine-producing nation. The state’s diverse terrain and microclimates allow for an incredibly wide-ranging selection of wine styles, and unlike tradition-bound Europe, experimentation is more than welcome here. Wineries range from boutique to massive corporations, and price and quality are equally varied—plenty of inexpensive bulk wine is made in the Central Coast area, while Napa is responsible for some of the world’s most prestigious and expensive “cult” wines.

Just about every style of wine you can imagine is made in California, from bone dry to unctuously sweet, still to sparkling, light and fresh to rich and full-bodied. Each AVA and sub-AVA has its own distinct personality. In the Napa Valley, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, and other Bordeaux varieties dominate, as well as Sauvignon Blanc. Sonoma County is best known for Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, and Zinfandel. The Central Coast has carved out a niche with Rhône blends based on Grenache and Syrah, while Mendocino has found success with Alsatian varieties such as Riesling and Gewürztraminer. With all the diversity that California has to offer, it is certain that any wine lover will find something to get excited about.
