Winemaker Notes

Raspberry, currant and subtle anise aromas. Glycerin laden mouthfeel. Dark fruit flavors that have depth and complexity. Very forward as is typical of this site.

Critical Acclaim

WS 94
Wine Spectator

Light in weight and texture, with complex, mineral-accented blackberry, red cherry, whole grain and spice flavors that flow easily into the long, expressive finish. Drink now through 2018. 1,187 cases made.

Wine Enthusiast

The 2008 Pinots from Ken Wright display their individual terroirs quite succinctly, with little evidence of the (roughly) 30% new oak they receive. The Abbott Claim has a bit more of a chocolaty flavor, with full, spicy cherry fruit at its core. In fact there is so much fruit, spicy and candied, that it is a bit like fruitcake, in a good way.

The Wine Advocate

The 2008 Pinot Noir Abbott Claim Vineyard comes from a site owned by Ken Wright and planted in 2001. It displays ample spicy fruit but not quite as much depth as some of its peers. Ripe, balanced, and correct in every way, it will benefit from 2-3 years of cellaring and provide pleasure through 2020, perhaps longer.

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, Pinot noir is the ultimate vehicle for conveying the aroma, flavor and texture of the location in which it is grown.
