Ken Wright Pinot Noir Willamette Valley Carter Vineyard 2015

Member Review by nambake:

Strong red. More blackberry than cherry. Not too sweet. Let it breath a bit. I find it works well at near room temperature. Excellent solid that holds it's own. One of my favorite wine. This Oregon pinot has really stuck with me and I stocked up on a few.

Ken Wright Cellars:
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

A spine of steel runs through the core of this wine, supporting spicy fruit flavors of cranberry, pomegranate and raspberry. Details of black tea contribute to the length, while the balanced tannins and underlying minerality give it still more structural support.

Light on its feet, with pretty plum and currant fruit on an open-textured frame, with fine tannins underlying the long, delicate finish. Drink now through 2020. 1,152 cases made.

Lithe and supple, this seductive wine offers meaty character under a layer of cherry and mineral flavors that linger nicely on the well-formed finish. Drink now through 2018.

Big-boned Pinot carrying flavors of blueberry and blue plum mingling with red and black cherry flavors, draped with a rich, silky texture.

The 2008 Pinot Noir Carter Vineyard from a site planted in 1983 and farmed by Ken Wright for the past 10 years, is dark ruby red with a sexy nose of underbrush, cherry blossom, spice box, and assorted black fruits. Rounder, richer, and a bit more concentrated than the preceding wines, it displays an outstanding integration of oak, acidity, and tannin, a velvety texture, and a lengthy, pure finish. It merits 3andndash;4 years of cellaring and will deliver prime drinking from 2013 to 2023.

Usually a blueberry and blue plum component mingles with red and black cherry flavors in the Pinot noir from this vineyard. Ken has worked with this wine for over 25 years, and always creates a dark, big wine that takes a year or two to fully open and show its excellence.
