Wine Spectator 93 Points: A hint of green olive adds piquancy to the light, vivid raspberry and guava fruit, coming together with refinement and purity as the finish lingers deftly. Shows depth and transparency. Drink now through 2020. - H.S.

2009 Vintage Tasting Notes

2009 Wine Spectator - 93 points - Light on its feet, but shows some flesh to the raspberry, cherry, cream and cinnamon flavors, pulsing gently against polished tannins on the long, expressive finish. Drink now through 2019. - H.S.

2008 Vintage Tasting Notes

2008 Wine Spectator - 94 points - Light in weight and texture, with complex, mineral-accented blackberry, red cherry, whole grain and spice flavors that flow eas ily into the long, expressive finish. Drink now through 2018." - H.S.

2008 Wine Advocate - 91 points - The 2008 Pinot Noir Abbott Claim Vineyard comes from a site owned by Ken Wright and planted in 2001. It displays ample spicy fruit but not quite as much depth as some of its peers. Ripe, balanced, and correct in every way, it will benefit from 2-3 years of cellaring and provide pleasure through 2020, perhaps longer. - Jay Miller

2005 Vintage Tasting Notes

"a fragrant perfume of pain grille, scorched earth, smoke, blueberry, and blackberry liqueur. The layers of sweet black fruits are matched by crisp acidity and well-concealed tannin. The finish is long and pure." - referring to the 2005 vintage of this wine, from Robert Parker's website, 10/07.

Abbott's Claim Vineyard was purchased by Ken Wright in 2000 and was developed by him. Pinot noir made from the vineyard is one of his newer offerings.

The 2005 Abbott's Claim received 92 points from Robert Parker.
