Ken Wright Cellars, Yamhill-Carlton, Bonnie Jean Vineyard, Pinot Noir 2017
in original carton
Floral and spice focused. Juicy and plush with dried blueberry, black cherry, marionberry and hints of warm spices, including nutmeg and cardamom. 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, we believe Pinot noir best expresses the character of these sites. Rather than stamping wine with a varietal trademark, Pinot noir is the ultimate vehicle for conveying the aroma, flavor and texture of the location in which it is grown. Ken Wright Cellars produces a single vineyard Pinot Noir from 13 different vineyard sites in the Northern Willamette Valley.

Vibrant and detailed, with expressive raspberry and blueberry flavors, featuring hints of sandalwood and tea that build richness and structure toward polished tannins. Drink now through 2027.
94 points Wine Enthusiast
Sourced from young vines, this is a forward and fruit-driven wine. The flavors are smooth and lightly high-toned, with currant and sweet tomato. There’s a splash of lemon oil, and the finish has a nice kick to it. Drink now and over the next three or four years
