  • International Wine Cellar | Rating: 89

    ($40; a selection made by the Burgundy Wine Company) Good full red. Aromas of cherry liqueur, fresh herbs and menthol. Rich, plump and thick, with sweet redcurrant, raspberry and cherry liqueur flavors complicated by lightly green notes of herbs and menthol. A rich, dense, rather suave pinot, finishing long and spicy, with firm tannins and late notes of chocolate and tar.

  • Wine Spectator | Rating: 91

    Lovely, polished and generous with its raspberry, currant and dusky spice flavors, echoing on the fine-grained finish with mineral and earthy touches, lingering with a flourish.

  • 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.
