Ken Wright Pinot Noir Guadalupe Vineyard Yamhill-Carlton 2010

Winemaker's Notes:

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 Oregon, Pinot Noir best expresses the character of these sites. Rather than stamping wine with a varietal trademark, Pinot noir is the ultimate vehicle for conveying the aroma, flavor and texture of the location in which it is grown.

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.

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.
