The 2012 Carter is a lush, blue and black fruit-driven beauty, showing great richness with balance.

Previous vintage 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

Wine Spectator 90 Points - Wine Spectator review: Lithe and supple, this seductive wine offers meaty character under a layer of cherry and mineral flavors that linger nicely on the well-formed finish. Drink now through 2018. - H.S.

2005 Vintage

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.

2005 Wine Advocate - 93 points - ...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. - Jay Miller
