    93 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.

    92 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.

    90 Polished, round and engaging for its cherry, spice and wet earth aromas and flavors, persisting nicely on the fine-grained finish. Drink now through 2014. 1,282 cases made.
