Ken Wright Pinot Noir Willamette Valley Angela Clawson Creek Vineyard 2007

External Review by NapaCabs.com:

Aged for ten months in 60% new French oak barrels (Troncais, Navers and Alliers). The wine is just terrific. It literally glows in the glass, with a brilliant dark ruby color that turns darker at the core. The aroma is assertive and demands attention. On the palate, brilliant and focused flavors of plum and dark cherry are kept under control by some fine tannins -- the wine has a bit of desirable grip now. It is detailed and layered, but still lithe. It is clearly one of the top wines of the vintage that I've tasted so far. Recession be damned, you gotta jump on this one.

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
