TN : Kings Ridge Oregon Pinot Noir 2007, Kings Rudge Wines, Oregon, USA

The grapes for this wine come from vineyards in the Willamette Valley (67%) and the Umpqua Valley (33%). The Pinot Noir grapes were fermented in vessels from 1.5 ton boxes to 20 ton closed-top tanks. They were punched down or pumped over three times per day and pressed at dryness. The wine was aged in a combination of new and used French oak barrels (18% new and 82% neutral) for nine months, then blended and bottled. 13,000 cases were produced. The pH is 3.66, titratable acidity is 5.3 grammes per litre, and the residual sugar is 0.2%.
