Winemaker Notes

Black cherry, chocolate and leather aromatics. More tannin than most of our sites along with good acidity. This structure provides for effortless aging. Bright plum, blueberry and cocoa on the palate. Eola Amity Hills AVA (volcanic).

Critical Acclaim

RP 93
The Wine Advocate

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 3-4 years of cellaring and will deliver prime drinking from 2013 to 2023.

WS 90
Wine Spectator

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.

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. 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.
