A Great Value Pinot Noir From One Of Oregon’s Best
Ken Wright has been crafting some of Oregon’s best Pinot Noirs for over two decades now. When he first began, Robert Parker observed, "There are not many Pinot Noir winemakers who can make six separate cuvees, and have five of them nearly outstanding. In fact, this exceptional success rate puts Ken Wright in the company of such Burgundy luminaries as Laurent Ponsot, Lalou Bize-Leroy, Hubert Lignier, J. J. Confuron, and Claude Dugat. Although quantities of the top wines are extremely limited, Wright's sumptuous Pinot Noirs are worth an effort to track down."
He now produces ten single vineyard bottlings that sell in the $40-60 range that offer some of the best Pinots you can find from Oregon. Ken Wright also produces an enormous value-priced Pinot Noir that is a blend of those single vineyards. The 2011 Ken Wright Pinot Noir Willamette Valley is the third great vintage in a row for this phenomenal bargain.
