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.

Deep, bright red. Smoky cherry and dark berries on the nose, with a touch of musky underbrush adding complexity. Sappy and nicely concentrated, offering bitter cherry, black raspberry and rose pastille flavors lifted by gentle acidity. Finishes with lingering smokiness, youthfully firm tannins and good tangy cut. Give this a little air or some more time in bottle.
