Wright Cellars Ken Pinot Noir Savoya Vineyard 2008

Member Review by RPerro:

Barrel sample. Another very green, harsh example of just harvested fruit. Lots of olive characteristics in this wine. Tannins are less pronounced than the Canary Hill sample, but fruit is just as hidden. No rating.

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

($55) Vivid ruby. Spicy raspberry, minerals and a subtle whiff of incense on the nose. Suave in texture, with a silky quality to the redcurrant, dark cherry, mineral and floral pastille flavors. Finishes broad and seductively sweet, with a light touc... Stephen Tanzer's IWC. A Pinot Noir wine from Oregon in USA. 2008 Wright Cellars, Ken Pinot Noir Savoya Vineyard 750ml

The medium ruby-colored 2008 Pinot Noir Savoia displays an ethereal perfume of cedar, spice box, rose petal, and assorted red fruits. Leaner and racier on the palate than its peers, this is an elegantly styled effort with impeccable balance and a lengthy, seamless finish. Give it 1andndash;2 years to fill out and drink it through 2020.

Supple, open-textured and inviting, letting its plum, currant and sweet spice flavors float easily through the refined texture, hovering over the long, delicate finish. Drink now through 2018.
