Ken Wright Cellars Pinot Noir Canary Hill Vineyard "Cuve L&e" 2010

Winemaker's Notes:

Wine from Canary Hill is typically very forward, with aromas of black cherry and cola. Located at the southern end of the Eola Hills and faces east. The original vines were planted in 1983 and 1984. All of the acreage planted to Pinot noir was Pommard clone. Two and a half acres that were originally Chenin Blanc were replanted to Pommard and Dijon 114 clones. Six acres that were planted to Chardonnay were replaced with Dijon 777 clone. The entire 20 acres are now planted to Pinot noir. Elevation is 450' to 550'. The soil is a mix of Jory and Nekia. Both are formed from igneous rock and have a reddish-brown tint. This site, however, has less depth than similar soils in the Dundee Hills.

Located in rural Carlton, Oregon, Ken Wright Cellars is devoted to showcasing the inherent quality of selected vineyard sites. With a clarity and breadth that is unequaled by other varieties, we believe Pinot noir best expresses the character of these sites. Rather than stamping wine with a varietal trademark, we see Pinot noir as a vehicle for conveying the aroma, flavor and texture of the location in which it is grown. We also have a place in our hearts for the limited production of two white wines, Chardonnay from Celilo Vineyard near White Salmon, Washington, and Pinot Blanc from Freedom Hill Vineyard. Read less

I know it was not a bad wine, but this wine did not exactly suit my tastes. It was a bit too bitter, not vinegary or anything, just bitter. It tasted somewhat like blackberries.

Feel like I got to see how the magician pulls off the trick, without seeing the show. Too much astringency and acidity and not enough fruit vintage = 2012

Canary Hill Vineyard Pinot Noir is fruit focused, with a modest structure, light tannins and bright acidity. Red and blue fruits, such as blueberry and cherry shine through.
