KEN WRIGHT CELLARS "Willamette Valley" Pinot Noir 2018
Wine Region: Oregon - USA
Grape: Pinot Noir
Tasting notes: Floral notes of magnolia, rose and candied red fruits play with gentle touches of cinnamon and clove on the nose. Flavors of generous red cherry, raspberry, and plum swirl with subtle notes of vanilla cream. This wine graces the entire palate with smoothly textured tannins and leaves it with a lucisusly clean finish.
About the winery: Over 40 years of winemaking has taught Ken a simple truth: source is everything. Located in rural Carlton, Oregon, Ken Wright Cellars is devoted to producing wine that showcases world-class vineyard sites' inherent quality. In 1986, with family, belongings and 10 barrels in tow, Ken moved to McMinnville and started Panther Creek Cellars. His concept of focusing on vineyard-designate bottling began during those years at Panther Creek, and this was cemented as a core philosophy in 1994 when Ken Wright Cellars was founded. Ken Wright Cellars now produces a single vineyard Pinot Noir from 13 different vineyard sites in the Northern Willamette Valley.
