2006 Ken Wright - Pinot Noir Savoya Vineyard

Not a typical Oregon PN. Refined rich ripeness. Opaque and very concentrated. Black fruit flavors. Would even work with beef.

Unique blend of Cab Franc and Merlot - fruit forward with round tannins. Fairly 'big' red ...almost "creamy" in texture. Tobacco, blackberry

Lighter than I remember from the first bottle - but very good. No decant needed. Had it with Pan Fried Fish and Fresh Corn - excellent.

What aromatics!!! This is one of the wine wtih greatest fruit core I ever tasted. Is drinking beautiful and smooth but it will gain complexities over 3-8 years and wil last for more than a decade. A jewel.
