Just a couple of wines from this Oregon producer. I was unmoved by the rather simple Pinot Gris but liked the new world-style Pinot Noir.

1999 Pinot Gris
Pale colour. Clean, fruity nose. Rounded palate with fruit and a touch of spice; otherwise a bit simple and one-dimensional.

1999 Kings Ridge Pinot Noir
Bright cherry fruit nose. The palate shows a bit of tar and some tannin along with sweet fruit. Quite impressive but pretty new world in style. Very good+
