Ken Wright Freedom Hill Vineyard Pinot Noir 2019
|Region||United States, Oregon, Willamette Valley|
Floral and spice focused. Brooding and dark blackberry with hints of five spice, cocoa nibs, and fresh honey. Open and inviting on the palate with flavors of chocolate and savory boysenberry. Our 2019 wine is ridiculously dark in color and concentrated in flavor and aroma. The wine shows great purity.
Freedom Hill has firmly established itself as one of the top vineyards in Willamette Valley. This wine only burnishes its reputation. The aromas bring notes of cinnamon, spice box, black-tea leaves and dark cherry, still locked up but immediately enticing. The flavors are fresh and intense, with vibrancy and power, but also delicacy and layering. A hyperextended finish sails off into the distance. It's outrageous. Best after 2027, with a long life beyond that.
Broad-shouldered in frame but remains elegant and polished, with vibrant black cherry and blueberry flavors highlighted by orange peel and black tea. Ends with refined tannins. Drink now through 2029. 754 cases made.
