    91 The 2006 Pinot Noir Guadalupe is sourced from a vineyard that Ken Wright has been working with since 1992 and has been replanted from phylloxera. The vineyard has just about fully recovered as this effort demonstrates. Dark ruby-colored, it gives up mineral and earth aromas, pain grille, and black fruits. On the palate dark fruits dominate and there is a firm structure to hold the layered flavors together. This lengthy effort will drink well from 2010 to 2018. 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.

    90 Bright medium red. Spicy cherry, violet and gingerbread on the nose. Round and fleshy, offering sweet dark berry flavors and gentle tannins that gain strength with air. The spiciness resonates through the long, chewy finish. Offers plenty of richness without coming across as thick.
