Wine Advocate | Rating: 87From ungrafted Pommard vines planted in 1988 on breezy basalt outcroppings south of McMinnville, Wright's 2010 Pinot Noir Meredith Mitchell leads with strong, cedar-like resin, allied to black raspberry and dark cherry. This is exuberantly bright and juicy as well as persistent, but a bit strident in its combination of phenolic pungency and tartness and with an underlying firmness that for now at least borders on the hard and spare. I want to revisit this a little later on before hazarding any prognosis as to its aging potential.Author: David Schildknecht
Wine Spectator | Rating: 92Offers a bright red color and vivid flavors, with a peppermint note adding interest to the profile of raspberry and spice. Lingers effortlessly on the finish.Author: Harvey Steiman
