Superb Pinot Noir

Originally making wines on California’s Central Coast, Ken Wright saw the unique potential for winemaking in Oregon’s Willamette Valley while visiting friends in the 1980s. The different terroirs reminded him of Burgundy, and he packed up his family, belongings and 10 barrels of wine, and moved there in 1986 to focus on vineyard designate bottling. Ken’s pioneering spirit led him to open Ken Wright Cellars in historic Carlton, Oregon, in the 1990s, where he produces many different single-vineyard Pinot Noirs to best convey the distinct characteristics of each location. His deep understanding and appreciation of the Oregonian geology have earned him a cult following.

Ken Wright 2014 Pinot Noir “Savoya” Yamhill/Carlton, Willamette Valley

This is a big, burly yet extremely elegant Pinot Noir.  Bold, bright deep red and black exotic aromas jump out of the glass. Reminding me of some Russian River DuMol wines.  This Savoya greats you with hints of spicy aromas of ripe blackberry, raspberry and strawberry jam notes on the lush palate. This youngster is loaded with bright fruit, good acid and a touch of subtle oak spices and a whiff of espresso beans and tobacco.  This wine evolves with time in the glass with even greater intensity on the long finish.
