External Reviews for Ken Wright Pinot Noir Carter Vineyard
Big-boned Pinot carrying flavors of blueberry and blue plum mingling with red and black cherry flavors, draped with a rich, silky texture.
Lithe and supple, this seductive wine offers meaty character under a layer of cherry and mineral flavors that linger nicely on the well-formed finish. Drink now through 2018.
The 2008 Pinot Noir Carter Vineyard from a site planted in 1983 and farmed by Ken Wright for the past 10 years, is dark ruby red with a sexy nose of underbrush, cherry blossom, spice box, and assorted black fruits. Rounder, richer, and a bit more concentrated than the preceding wines, it displays an outstanding integration of oak, acidity, and tannin, a velvety texture, and a lengthy, pure finish. It merits 3andndash;4 years of cellaring and will deliver prime drinking from 2013 to 2023.
