2009 Vintage Tasting Notes

2009 Wine Advocate - 91 points - The 2009 Pinot Noir Carter Vineyard is a dense, broad-shouldered Pinot with plenty of spicy dark fruit flavors, good balance, and a lengthy, pure finish. It will benefit from 1-2 years of additional cellaring and will offer a drinking window extending from 2013 to 2021+. - Jay Miller

2009 Wine Spectator - 92 points - Velvety and generous, delivering a lithe mouthful of orange peel-scented raspberry and guava flavors that linger effortlessly against creamy, polished tannins. Drink now through 2019. - H.S.

2008 Vintage Tasting Notes

2008 Wine Advocate - 93 points - The 2008 Pinot Noir Carter Vineyard from a site planted in 1983 and farmed by Ken Wright for the past 10 years, is dark ruby red with a sexy nose of underbrush, cherry blossom, spice box, and assorted black fruits. Rounder, richer, and a bit more concentrated than the preceding wines, it displays an outstanding integration of oak, acidity, and tannin, a velvety texture, and a lengthy, pure finish. It merits 3-4 years of cellaring and will deliver prime drinking from 2013 to 2023. - Jay Miller

2005 Vintage Tasting Notes

"...lots of blue fruit aromas and flavors. It has superb depth as well as bracing acidity and well-integrated tannin. The long, pure finish lasts for 45+ seconds."- on the 2005 vintage, from Robert Parker's website, 10/07

Robert Parker rated the 2005 vintage of this wine 93 points

Usually a blueberry and blue plum component mingles with red and black cherry flavors in the Pinot noir from this vineyard. Ken has worked with this wine for over 25 years, and always creates a dark, big wine that takes a year or two to fully open and show its excellence.
