Ken Wright Pinot Noir Mccrone 2012

External Review by JJ Buckley Fine Wines:

Deep garnet core extends to the rim. The aromas are deep and brambly. Mustard flowers black tea leaf cola and river pebbles balance the ripe plum raspberry and black cherry fruit aromas. Pomegranate and white pepper peek from the background. The tannins are fine-grained and abundant in this medium-bodied Pinot noir. The mouthfeel is over all quite lush and round but with some rather pointed elements from the acidity and tannin. Wild and expressive this wine undeniably has a lot to say but

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.

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

Lithe, open-textured and inviting, with peach and mango overtones to the black cherry and floral flavors, coming together harmoniously and finishing with a hint of wet gravel that lends a savory character to the long finish. Drink now through 2022. 480 cases made.

Firmly tannic, with a peppery flavor, this accents its tart berry fruit with flavors of brown spices and hints of dried leaves. Its power lies in the interplay of such details, as well as the overall balance and precision of the winemaking.
