Ken Wright Pinot Noir Meredeth 2007
Located just 1 mile from Canary Hill in the Eola Hills, Carter Vineyard is lower on the hillside yet has a leaner and less fertile soil. It is mainly Nekia soil, which is formed from weathered basic rock. It lies at an elevation of 325' and was planted in 1983. The wine is firmer than Canary Hill in its youth but evolves beautifully after a few years in bottle to show black fruits and fresh, healthy earth scents.

External Reviews for Ken Wright Pinot Noir Meredeth
"Wait 'til the grapes taste good. Don't make sour wine, Papa." These are profound words from a six-year-old in a challenging harvest. But fortunately for us, Ken Wright heeded the advice of his daughter, Josie, and we were rewarded with a pretty exceptional range of wins in 2007 nonetheless. Perhaps the best known of Ken Wright's vineyard sources, the famous Shea Vineyard in the Yamhill-Carlton District produces some of the most legendary pinot noir fruit in Oregon, vintage after vintage. This is easily attributable to the careful attention paid to the vines, the site's slight elevation and well-drained sedimentary soils. And, for as good as these wines are, they're still reasonably priced. Which means our limited supplies will disappear quickly, so don't dawdle.
Another beauty from Ken Wright Cellars and one of Oregon\'s best known vineyards.
Medium in body, intensely perfumed, endlessly complex on the palate, which alternates subtle nuance and assertiveness of flavor.
