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

Tasted from Barrel at the winery, Memorial Day 2010. This wine is already showing wondefully complex notes of blackberry and graham cracker. This was darker than most of the other's we tasted at the winery and definitely one we will be purchasing upon release. Note: 2009 is looking like it will be a "drink now" sort of vintage like 2006

We found it to be very elegant without much tannins. As it opened up it seemed to get a bit more complex. We paired it with a panko crusted flounder and some salmon sashimi - it was very food friendly.

Vivid ruby. Intense, spice-accented aromas of blackberry, cherry compote and underbrush, with mocha and vanilla nuances emerging with air. Juicy and focused in the mouth, offering sweet red and dark berry flavors and a hint of bitter chocolate. Fi... Stephen Tanzers IWC.

The medium ruby-colored 2009 Pinot Noir Willamette Valley offers up a fragrant perfume of spicy red fruits and floral notes. Friendly and easy-going on the palate, it delivers plenty of enjoyment at half the price of the vineyard designates. Drink it over the next 6andndash;7 years.

The Canary Hill vineyard is located at the southern end of the Eola Hills, which are covered with southeast-facing vines. This wine shows good complexity and concentration, with intense flavors of red currant, cola, and cranberry.

One of Oregon Pinot Noir specialist Ken Wrightrsquo;s new releases, this has a purity of flavors and a graceful balance that are totally disarming. A seductive wine, its pretty raspberry, black cherry and floral aromas and flavors linger enticingly on the open-textured finish. best from 2001 through 2008.

Bright ruby. Sexy aromas of raspberry preserves, vanilla and mocha, with a hint of orange peel adding lift and an exotic touch. Juicy and very fresh, offering sappy red fruit flavors that pick up a refreshingly bitter edge on the back half. Shows a hint of warmth on the finish, which features jammy red berry character and a late note of white pepper.
