Tasting notes

Kingpin’s signature Red Mountain nose of black currants, black cherry, black plum, earth, cigar box and cedar leads to a silken smörgåsbord of black fruits, dark chocolate, baking spices and crushed rock. A veritable fortress built to share its riches in ever evolving expositions for decades, Kingpin is a noble beast.

Food pairing: Grilled New York steak with gorgonzola butter, Gaga’s stewballs and angel hair pasta

Movie pairing: The Godfather

FOUNDERS’ NOTES:
Launched in 2006, Kingpin celebrates the raw power and intensity of Red Mountains's iconic Klipsun Vineyard. Although we have no definitive conclusion on its ultimate life span due to the fact that we have only made it for 10 years or so and have none even beginning to peak, we suspect this is a wine that can be enjoyed for at least 30 years, if not many more.
