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

The 2008 Pinot Noir Nysa Vineyard, a Dundee Hills site planted on its own roots in 1990. Medium ruby red, it exhibits an expressive nose of cedar, spice box, rose petal, cherry, and raspberry. Densely packed with plenty of underlying structure, this intensely flavored, lengthy effort will benefit from 2ndash;3 years of additional bottle age and drink well through 2020.

($55) Vivid red. Red and dark berries, violet and dusty cocoa powder on the exotically perfumed nose. Concentrated and tactile, with superb depth and noteworthy definition to the black raspberry and candied cherry flavors. Becomes livelier with air, ... Stephen Tanzer's IWC. A Pinot Noir wine from Oregon in USA. 2008 Ken Wright Cellars Pinot Noir Nysa Vineyard 750ml

Supple, round and graceful, this is impressive for its clarity, centering on gorgeous currant and plum fruit, framed with hints of spice and dried cherry. The finish sails on and on. Drink now through 2018.
