Ken Wright grew up in Bourbon country (Kentucky). While waiting tables to put himself through school, Ken was exposed to fine wines from regions around the world. The passion became avocation when Ken left the Bluegrass State to attend enology and viticulture classes at UC-Davis. Eight years were spent winemaking Talbott Vineyards in CA. Friends from the Willamette Valley piqued Ken’s interest in the region when they would visit, and a trip to the Dundee Hills in 1982 convinced him that this was where the finest Pinot Noir in North America was being grown – 30 years later Ken Wright is a “name” among Pinotphiles.
Only 700 case of this magically crafted Pinot Noir were produced. The wine’s perfumed aromas jump out of the glass on impact. The wine is silky yet full in body, elegant yet not light – just the opposite, a real powerhouse. On the palate you are greeted by bold black and red stone fruit, anise and a touch of elegant earthy spiciness. The wine’s fruit/acid ratio is well-synced. The finish is long, intense and lasts a good 30 seconds!
