Ken Wright 2011s - Exhilarating Oregon Pinot Noir!
Lovers of Oregon wine know that Ken Wright needs no introduction. One of the most important figures of Oregon Wine also creates some of the most sought-after Pinot Noir in the nation. Sourcing only from top vineyards throughout the Willamette Valley, his name has become synonymous with quality and representing the very best that Oregon has to offer.
We have received our allocation of his 2011 vintage selections, and those who have sampled are raving about them, as 2011 is shaping up to be one of the better vintages of the decade. Look no further than the Wine Advocate's most recent report on Oregon Pinot Noir:
"What I encountered amazed their growers as much as it did me, first in how different these wines are from those of 2010 despite strong meteorological similarities...and more importantly in how ravishing they are, possessed of perfume and vibrancy of a sort one can only wish for most years. I already feel pretty confident that these will as a group prove to be the most exhilarating Willamette Pinots since the 2005s" - David Schildknecht, Wine Advocate # 202, Aug 2012
This is just the beginning of what promises to be a year for the record books in Oregon! Many of these wines (the single vineyard selections in particular) are of very limited production, so lock in for your bottles sooner than later!
All My Best
