Ken Wright's Last 2006 Pinot noir:
Carter Vineyard Hillblock

Ken Wright's 2006 Pinots are Long Gone
EXCEPT for the Carter Vineyard Hillblock 06

The Carter Vineyard Pinot noir Hillblock 06 received 93 points from Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2006 Pinot Noir Hillblock was made by Ken Wright from a vineyard planted in 1983. Wright also makes a Carter Vineyard designate under his own label which I found to be equally uplifting. The Hillblock was aged in 70% new French oak and bottled without fining or filtration. Cherry red in color, it has a superb perfume of pain grille, spice box, red and black cherry and black raspberry. This is followed by a layered, velvety-textured, succulent wine with great depth, concentration and structure for this vintage. It will evolve for 2-3 years and offer prime drinking from 2010 to 2018."


Don't overlook this big Pinot from the tiny winery

Highly Recommended

Carter Vineyard Pinot noir 2006 is rich and forward. Lush flavors of black cherries are framed by a silky texture. Earth, spice, and fruit hang on through the finish. The Carter Hillblock will delight from day one. Ken Wright crafts this gem from 25 year old Pommard vines.
