King Estate Pinot Noir

 Business trips are a great opportunity to discover new wines.  Granted, it usually comes when out to dinner (where I gained my nickname of half bottle).  But, every now and then I am very fortunate to receive a nice bottle as a welcome amenity upon arrival to my destination.  

I recently returned from a trip to Seattle, and my arrival experience at The Westin was well, quite personal.  When the plane touched down, I (along with most everyone else on the plane) powered up my phone.  The first email I received was a personal welcome from the GM.  She indicated they had been reading our blog, and that a bottle of King Estate Pinot Noir (sustainably farmed in Oregon) was waiting for me when I arrived to my room.  I was in Seattle for a conference, and this welcome kicked off the week perfectly!

The King Estate Pinot Noir has a lovely dark ruby color, and flavors of black cherry and pomegranate, and a light spicy finish.  It has very soft tannins, medium finish with lingering fruits throughout.  It’s a fruitier pinot for Oregon, but quite delicious. 

It was an excellent treat to end each night with a glass!

Thank you, Westin Seattle!
