Winemaker's Notes:

The picture is of the 2005 but the wine is 2006."Dark red.Deep, smoky nose shows more power than the Nysa and Canary Hills wines.Blackberry and cherry on the nose and palate, joined in the mouth bybitter chocolate and licorice nuances. Became sweeter and morered-fruity with air. Finishes chewy and persistent, in need of somebottle aging. "90(+?) pointsBy Josh Raynolds, Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar, May/Jun 08

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

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.

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.

Dark red. Deep, smoky nose shows more power than the Nysa and Canary Hills wines. Blackberry and cherry on the nose and palate, joined in the mouth by bitter chocolate and licorice nuances. Became sweeter and more red-fruity with air. Finishes chewy and persistent.
