Tasting Notes

93-points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2006 Pinot Noir McCrone Vineyard is a Ken Wright "monopole" from which he takes all the fruit. The very expressive bouquet gives up mineral, earth, cherry, and raspberry. Layered and plump on the palate, there are gobs of savory complex fruit flavors, great depth and concentration and a very long finish. Ken Wright Cellars remains a benchmark for Oregon Pinot Noir. Wright’s portfolio of 2006s is outstanding across the board. As has become customary, Ken Wright has pulled off a tour de force in farming and winemaking." (Oct 2008) 92-points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Light, bright red. Precise red berry and mineral aromas take on a bright blood orange quality with air. Fresh red fruit flavors stain the palate, displaying a seductively weightless personality and gaining lift and clarity on the back end. The most graceful wine of this set, finishing clean and extremely long." (May/June 2008) A densely planted vineyard in Oregon's Yamhill-Carlton District, McCrone Vineayrd is known for its extremely well-drained Wellsdale sedimentary soil. This south-southwest facing vineyard at 400 feet in elevation produces a deliciously powerful and dense pinot noir for Ken Wright. Its core of black fruit is captivating—you may have trouble sharing this one.
