Ken Wright Cellars Savoya Vineyard Pinot Noir 2008
Pinot Noir from Willamette Valley, Oregon
Wine Style Guide
Red wines that are more fruit-forward and lighter in tannin and body.
Medium bodied reds that go down easy, with smooth tannins and supple fruit.
Wines where earthy and/or spicy dominate the flavors – typically medium to full body.
Full bodied wines that have concentrated fruit and are higher in alcohol and/or tannins. Some need age.
Blueberry, blackberry, clove and tea aromatics. Lush palate presence. Complex flavors that mirror the nose and a forward mouthfeel with less acidity than the volcanic sites.
"Supple, open-textured and inviting, letting its plum, currant and sweet spice flavors float easily through the refined texture, hovering over the long, delicate finish. Drink now through 2018. 1,790 cases made."
"The medium ruby-colored 2008 Pinot Noir Savoia displays an ethereal perfume of cedar, spice box, rose petal, and assorted red fruits. Leaner and racier on the palate than its peers, this is an elegantly styled effort with impeccable balance and a lengthy, seamless finish. Give it 1-2 years to fill out and drink it through 2020. "
The Wine Advocate
"The Savoya Pinot Noir displays excellent concentration and grip and its raspberry/cherry fruit gives it a tart, racy flair. There's an herbal edge to the tannins, but overall this is very well crafted, balanced and built for medium-term cellaring. "
