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.

Vivid ruby-red. Aromas of blackberry, cherry pit and licorice, with a bright whiff of rose adding lift. This chewy, taut midweight gains flesh and sweetness with air, offering deep dark berry and bitter cherry flavors and a smoky nuance. Opens up nicely with aeration and finishes with excellent spicy cut and smoky, earthy persistence. Decant this if you plan on opening a bottle in the next couple of years.
