  • Wine Spectator | Rating: 90

    Bright, focused and generous with its currant, berry and spice flavors, finishing smooth. Spicy oak notes are nicely balanced with zingy acidity.

    The 2000 Pinot Noir Carter Vineyard, medium to dark ruby in color, offers muddled black cherry aromas and flavors. It has an impressively ripe, blackberry-laced core yet the firm tannin in the finish is cause for concern.

  • 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, they believe Pinot noir best expresses the character of these sites. Rather than stamping wine with a varietal trademark, they see Pinot noir as a vehicle for conveying the aroma, flavor and texture of the location in which it is grown.

    Oregon has seen a huge boom in wine production in recent decades, as has the entire Pacific Northwest region. Once known for small wineries nestled amongst farmland, the Oregon wine industry has been the recipient of a huge capital influx, which has opened up new vine-growing territory and built numerous large-production brands. Although best known for Pinot Noir from the Willamette Valley, which sits at the same latitude as Burgundy, the state continues to build a reputation for Rhône and white varieties as well.
