All our wines are estate grown on King Mountain. For thousands of years the soil has been untouched by man.
Al King planted this property with his hands because of his love for nature and wine. The soil is rich and the morning fog from the Pacific ocean plus the winds from Lake Sonoma temper the warm days; a good balance of maritime and inland climates.
Our approach is hands off, the quality of the soil, climate and vines are expressed in the wines.
We practice sustainable farming and never use pesticides

2008 Al King Wines Zinfandel
The 2008 vintage was a challenging one with a second year of drought and a hard frost during the spring. These factors forced a smaller yield but with hand sorting, good quality of fruit. Our 2008 King Mountain Zinfandel has beautiful dark garnet hues and aromas of earth and blue fruit. Tart spice and berry flavors are bright in the mid palate with a nice long finish.
2009 Al King Wines Zinfandel
The 2009 vintage was an ideal growing season. The cooler summer temperatures lead to a warm September that brought the fruit to full ripening. Our 2009 King Mountain Zinfandel with its elevated vineyards produced smaller berries with intense flavors. The wine opens with a beautiful garnet color; the aromas of spice, earth and red berries are welcoming. Bright flavors of berries and candied fruit are followed with a silky mouth feel and a long finish with sweet vanilla accents. We recommend decanting to enjoy now or holding in your cellar for a few years.
