The Domaine bottling is a standout, not only for King Estate, but for all Oregon Pinot Gris. Vinified in stainless steel and left sur lie for five months, this classy effort features ripe, rich fruit flavors of pear, banana and light tropicality. Fleshy and full, yet never heavy or oppressive, it's delicious from first sniff to last sip.
