Special Preview: What Ken Wright Cellars Will Be Pouring in Oregon!
Each year the small communities in Yamhill County look forward to the Oregon Wine Country Half Marathon. The marathon brings thousands of runners and spectators from all over the world who come to enjoy the beauty of Oregon’s Willamette Valley wine country. They love the course and beautiful views, and especially the post-race Wine & Music Festival held at Ken Wright Cellars in downtown Carlton!
The finish line ends right in front of Carlton’s historic train depot, home to the Ken Wright Cellars Tasting Room. Across the street at the winery, local vendors, restaurants and wineries set-up shop for hungry and thirsty runners. Ken Wright Cellars has been the main host for the festival since 2010, and we’re excited to be part of the fun again this year!
Be sure to stop by the Ken Wright Cellars wine booth to taste three special bottlings: 2012 Celilo Vineyard Chardonnay, 2014 Willamette Valley Pinot noir, and 2011 Tyrus Evan Walla Walla Syrah! Here’s a preview of what we’ll be pouring:
Description: Terrific acidity and a great deal of minerality derived from being planted directly into pulverized basalt. Nose and palate share apple and pear with hints of banana. This is a beautifully balanced wine that changes dramatically over the course of a meal.
Label Description: Original Ken Wright Cellars label created in 1994
Tasting description: 2014 provided an abundance of perfectly ripe Pinot noir. The wine exhibits great depth of color with intense and complex aroma and flavor. The textural profile is lush and balanced.
Label Description: Original Ken Wright Cellars label created in 1994.
Tasting description: Ripe and round with generous notes of plum, currant, black pepper and gravelly mineral flavors combine in a muscular wine with big bones and a finishing lick of citrus.
Label Description: Tyrus Evan is Ken Wright Cellars sister label featuring fruit from warmer climates. Tyrus and Evan are the middle names of Ken’s two sons.
