About Ken Wright Cellars
In the historic part of Carlton, there is a newcomer, who started making wine here in 1994. A transplant from Kentucky, Ken Wright is a leading proponent of vineyard-designated wines, and has come to be known for sweet, user-friendly Pinot Noirs from nearly a dozen of Oregon’s best sites.

($55) Deep ruby. Deep ruby with a bright rim. Musky aromas of red cherry, licorice and mocha. Big, rich and chewy, with a musky, earthy quality to the dark cherry, singed plum and Indian spice flavors. This nicely deep but youthfully clenched wine is the toughest read of this set right now and the one that needs the most patience. Closes on a note of bitter cherry, with good persistence. This vineyard, planted on a west-facing site, regularly produces wines that Wright says normally need the most time of any of his bottlings.
