Winemaker Notes

Located at the southern end of the Eola Hills and faces southeast. The vines were planted in 1982 and 1983. They are vertically trellised and are of the Pommard clone. Elevation is 450' to 550'. The soil is a mix of Jory and Nekia. Both are formed from igneous rock and have a reddish-brown tint. This site, however, has less depth than similar soils in the Dundee Hills. Wine from this vineyard is typically very forward, with aromas of black cherry and cola. Approximately 625 cases are produced.

Critical Acclaim

WE 94
Wine Enthusiast
The top wine from Ken Wright in 2008, this beautifully elegant wine clocks in at just 13.3% alcohol, yet delivers a mouthful of delicious flavors. A lovely mix of cranberry, pomegranate and wild raspberry is annotated with dusty herb. Excellent midpalate concentration and length.
WS 93
Wine Spectator
Big flavors on a polished frame make this intensely focused wine dance nicely, offering currant, blackberry and plum fruit, with hints of pepper and spice as the finish lingers effortlessly.
RP 92
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 2008 Pinot Noir Canary Hill Vineyard (owned by Ken Wright) is a bit darker in color. It reveals an enticing perfume of balsam wood, smoke, Asian spices, violets, black cherry, and black raspberry. This is followed by a medium-bodied, sweetly-fruited, intense wine with plenty of structure, vibrant acidity, and several years of aging potential. This mouth-filling Pinot will offer a drinking window extending from 2013 to 2023.

Located in rural Carlton, Oregon, Ken Wright Cellars is devoted to showcasing the inherent quality of selected vineyard sites. With a clarity and breadth that is unequaled by other varieties, we believe Pinot noir best expresses the character of these sites. Rather than stamping wine with a varietal trademark, Pinot noir is the ultimate vehicle for conveying the aroma, flavor and texture of the location in which it is grown.

We also have a place in our hearts for the limited production of two white wines, Chardonnay from Celilo Vineyard near White Salmon, Washington, and Pinot Blanc from Freedom Hill Vineyard and Meredith Mitchell Vineyard.
