"Anyone experience this behavior with their D7K?"

I took this photo last evening and I'm puzzled why it's so overexposed. I actually took 8 photos of this with different apertures and they all look like this. This was in a low light shaded area, so I cranked up the ISO to 2500. I was using my 300mm f4 lens. Camera settings were A priority, matrix metering, f6.3, 1/320, -.3 EV, Landscape picture mode, WB for direct sunlight, captured in RAW 14-bit.
I did change the WB in CNX2 from 5200k to about 6000k (can't remember exactly) and reduced the exposure about -.9, and boosted the color. The more colorful photo is the result.
Could the WB setting cause this or did the camera just not meter the scene properly? BTW this is not the first time I have experienced this with this new camera.
