Tasting Notes

An entry into the world of iconic Oregon producer Ken Wright. Lush and pure fruit is this winemaker's hallmark and this blend of single vineyards delivers in spades. Its food-friendly acidity demands a partnering with coq au vin or with wild mushrooms, lightly sautéed.

Staff Pick Notes

While the wine industry in Oregon is relatively young, world-class wines, especially Pinot Noirs, have been produced in this cool-climate region for years. The heart of the Oregon wine industry lies in the Willamette Valley, which has a similar latitude and climate to Burgundy. Ken Wright Cellars produces a Pinot Noir from 13 different vineyard sites in the Northern Willamette Valley. Pioneer of single-vineyard bottlings in Willamette Valley, this producer is synonymous with exceptional quality. This one is a juicy, leathery Pinot with a hint of pink peppercorn and a long lingering finish.
