We always like to check in on the new releases from Ken Wright. He’s been making Oregon Pinot Noir for many years, and with his range of single vineyard bottles, it’s always a great way to check in on the latest vintage. This year, we ended up with 4 bottles, and decided to break the tasting into two shows. This week, we taste the Shea Vineyard and the Canary Hill Vineyard.
Do you like to drink acidic wines young, or age them?
Every year, we look forward to tasting some of the single vineyard Pinot Noir wines from Ken Wright Cellars. They’re always some of the first wines released, and it’s a great chance to see grapes from the same vintage and wine maker express themselves across a number of different vineyards. We always find a few that we like, and since these wines get pretty good distribution, most of you can probably find a bottle locally. This year, we taste the 2010 Pinot Noir from McCrone, Carter, and Canary Hill Vineyards.
Do you know of a vineyard that consistently expresses character?
