Fantastic. Good concentration and minerality. Spicy like it should be from New Zealand.

Our first single vineyard wine from Ken Wright having only tried the Willamette AVA Pinot before. That was intriguing but this is another level; can describe a good amount of it but it’s the X factor that really makes it - it’s captivating and just all around impressive. Fresh and brambly berries; blueberry, blackberry, raspberry, cherry, plus nutmeg and even a little anise. Fruit forward but showing restraint and balanced perfectly with both tannins and acidity. Acidity brings it all together and what so many new world wines are missing. “We have great ripe fruit, but this is still wine, after all.” Absolutely worth justifying treating yourself to this on occasion

We had this on 5/8-9/18. Light ruby color. Plum and cherry on the bouquet. Bing cherry on the palate. A light to medium bodied wine. Smooth finish.

Crisp and savory red fruits with a solid structure and a nice finish. Drinking well now, but has the structure to keep improving for another year or two.

Purchased today to sample a highly rated Oregonian Pinot noir. Lovely color , light translucent redness to the edge with sweet cherry-like nose. Not as mouth filling as the Sonoma coast pinots. Lovely entry, middle palate, but light finish. Very fine example of Oregon.
