Kings Ridge 2000 Oregon Pinot Noir ($13.99)
Clear cherry red. Spicy red-fruit aromas with smoky notes, interesting, if a bit odd for a Pinot. Bright and juicy tart-cherry fruit nicely balanced by fresh-fruit acidity. US Importer: (May 22, 2002)

FOOD MATCH: Fine with alder-smoked salmon over pasta with butter and olive oil.

Wine notes in 'shelf-hanger' format:
We publish Wine Lovers' Page tasting reports in the familiar "shelf-hanger" size and format, to make it easy for wine merchants or collectors to print them out, clip and post them where this wine is displayed. We do ask, however, that the WineLoversPage.com name, logo and URL be left intact, and that these reports be used with the specific wines rated, not different bottlings or vintages.

Our tasting policy:
All my wine-tasting reports are consumer-oriented. In order to maintain objectivity and avoid conflicts of interest, I accept no free samples from wineries or distributors, purchasing all the wines I rate at my own expense in retail stores.
