Tyrus Evan

Even great Pinot Noir winemakers need a break from the finicky, noble grape once in awhile.

Ken Wright, known for his highly-rated, single-vineyard Pinot Noir, introduced a new label in 2003, Tyrus Evan, producing Bordeaux and Rhone varietals. The bottlings are limited—less than 1,300 cases were produced in 2003—but the winemaker says the wines are here to stay.

“We’ve had a lot of fun with it,” Wright said. “My first love is Pinot Noir. But the blending of these varietals is a great challenge and I am excited with the results.”

Wright used the middle names of his two sons, Cody and Carson, for the new label.

“Regardless of whether they choose to be involved in this process, we will continue to make the wines,” said Wright. “We won’t overstep the demand. Our goal is to start small and establish the brand.”

Reaction to the new label has been positive, and Wright said the new wines have sold well.
