Professional Reviews For This Wine


Wine Spectator | Rating: 92

Supple, generous and expressive on an open frame that lets the flavors float, with a tinge of crisp tannins impinging slightly on the black cherry and Earl Grey tea flavors, which linger on the elegant finish.

Wine Advocate | Rating: 90

The 2012 Pinot Noir Shea Vineyard has an attractive, floral bouquet with pretty vanilla-tinged red cherry and strawberry fruit that are nicely defined. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannin, well-judged acidity and a gentle grip on the spicy finish that lingers. This is one of the best 2012s from Ken Wright and should give at least a decade's worth of pleasure as it matures.

About This Producer


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.

Wine Varietal: Pinot Noir


Notorious for its fickle growing patterns, Pinot Noir vines prefer long, cool growing conditions and tend to mutate easily, leaving behind numerous clones and inconsistent flavor profiles. Although it is one of the three major varieties used in Champagne production, Burgundy is the traditional home of Pinot Noir. The 30-mile stretch of hills known as the Cote d'Or is valued as the world's premier production area. Pinot Noir is planted all over the world. In the United States, Sonoma, the Russian River Valley, Carneros and the Willamette Valley produce top-notch wines from this variety. Other notable countries include New Zealand, Australia, and Chile. Typical descriptors for Pinot Noir include strawberry, raspberry, cherry, mushroom, and meaty notes.
