Ken Wright Pinot Noir Guadalupe Vineyard 2015

External Review:

Fresh and lively, with juicy flavors of cherry and raspberry at the core, showing glints of white chocolate and peppermint as the finish lingers easily. A zingy wine. Drink now through 2019. 893 cases made.

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

Quite tart, with lemony acids, the Guadalupe is built upon a mineral base of wet stone and chalk. There’s a streak of earthy umami, dried leaf and green olive, yet the orchestration of these elements is superb, resulting in a distinctive wine focused on details of earth and soil.

Raspberry and cherry fruit pure and concentrated introduces the wine aromatically and glides smoothly into the midpalate. It tightens its focus and lingers gracefully a mouthful of tart primary ripe and deliciously fresh fruit. Wine Enthusiast.

Like his other wines from this site planted in 1989 that he leases long-term Wright labels his 2010 Pinot Noir Guadalupe Vineyard simply "Willamette Valley " because officially it s in the Dundee Hills but shares the sedimentary soil of neighboring Yamhill Carlton rather than the defining red Jory (eroded volcanic) soil of the Dundee appellation. Tart-edged juicy red raspberry is pungently wreathed in peat-like smoke; mouthwateringly tinged with salt; and invigoratingly imbued with the bitter crunch of berry seeds all of which stand in contrast with a leathery streak that also runs all the way from nose to long tail. There is a juicy exuberance and a clarity of primary fruit here that I miss in many of the Pinots in the present collection and which makes me confident predicting that this will at the very least be worth following for half a dozen years during the course of which it will hopefully acquire more complexity. -David Schildknecht Robert Parkers Wine Advocate.
