With a clarity and breadth that is unequaled by other varieties, the people at Ken Wright cellars believe Pinot noir best expresses the character of these sites.

About this wine:
Ken Wright Cellars Eola-Amity Hills AVA Pinot Noir (2021) is a red wine produced from Pinot Noir grapes grown in the Eola-Amity Hills American Viticultural Area (AVA) in Oregon, USA. This wine is known for its intense aromas and flavors of dark fruit, such as black cherry and blackberry, as well as notes of spice, earth, and floral undertones. The wine is medium-bodied with a balanced acidity and firm tannins, making it a versatile wine to pair with various dishes, such as roasted poultry or grilled salmon. Ken Wright is a renowned producer of single-vineyard Pinot Noirs in Oregon, and his Eola-Amity Hills AVA Pinot Noir is a highly-regarded example of this style.

Ratings & Reviews

95 Points & Editor's Choice - Wine Enthusiast:
"This is a Goldilocks special, because the fruit, alcohol, acidity and tannins are just right. Rainier cherry and lavender aromas are joined by smaller notes of leather and a new cedar chest drawer. The wine’s cassis, orange pith and smoky Lapsang souchong tea flavors float on a soft, smooth texture. *Editors’ Choice*" - MA

94 Points - Decanter:
"Given what Oregon Pinot Noir fetches, that this wine can be had for less than two Jacksons is a bit mind-boggling. Beautifully red fruited with ample structure. Ken Wright shows why he consistently makes some of the Valley's great wines, irrespective of vintage: mildly austere aromas, crushed basalt, seaspray and a hint of dusty blackberries. The palate offers sheer generosity, candied watermelon, dusty black cherry, savoury dried herbs and a bright kiss of fresh mint—quite the wine. 2023 - 2032." -Clive Pursehouse (5/4/23)

93 Points, #69 Top 100 Of 2023 - Wine Spectator:
"Grace meets structure and tension in this Pinot, which offers deep blueberry and raspberry flavors highlighted by crushed stone, forest floor and dusky spices. Ends with fine-grained tannins. Drink now through 2032." - Tim Fish (web only 2023)

90 Points - Allen Meadows' BurgHound:
"There is an interesting hint of the sauvage present on the pretty aromas of red and blue pinot fruit and briar-scented nose. There is both a lovely texture and fine mid-palate density to the delicious middleweight flavors that possess very good depth and persistence. This would benefit from a few years of keeping though it is already quite good. Moreover, in today's pinot market, it offers fine quality for the price." (Oct 2022)
