KEN WRIGHT CELLARS 2018 VINTAGE PRESALE

Limited Time Offer - Order Deadline: Saturday March 16

"Deep, dreamy and gorgeous."
-Ken Wright on his 2018 single vineyard Pinot Noir

After an introduction like that I feel that I don't need to add much more but a few words on vintage conditions. Overall 2018 was another warm, dry growing season with two important footnotes. One is that despite the summer's warmth, it was consistent with no major heat spikes. Second is that autumn brought markedly cooler weather and a nice dose of rain in September, refreshing the vines and extending the season by allowing the grapes longer time on the vine. Longer hangtime in moderate, even weather develops more complex flavors while retaining balancing acidity.  

And boom! The result: deep, dreamy and gorgeous Pinot Noir. The few barrel samples that Julianne brought for our tasting last weekend were in line with Ken's comments. Full-flavored, layered and succulent, their generous fruit profile was balanced by lively youthful acidity. Although still in the process of becoming bona fide wines, it was clear to see the promise of beauty and depth ahead. 

The one downside to the vintage at KWC is that production was down 20%, so for some vineyards availability and pricing is different this year as noted below.
