2019 Ken Wright Pinot Noirs

From Ken Wright’s notes:
“2019 is a defining vintage, producing incredibly beautiful wine. Patience was key as true ripeness only happens with mother nature’s blessing. Our 24 sorters removed everything that was not not perfect. Yes, we lost a significant volume of fruit in the process, but with the effort of our sorting line we were able to “PERFECT” the fruit we received.
Our 2019 wines are ridiculously dark in color and concentrated in flavor and aroma, expressing great purity. This is a great vintage for us that reminds me of 1991, that without question was the best of the 90’s. Great balance, perfume and longevity. 2019 will be one of Oregon’s signature vintages.”

2016 Andrew Will Reds

2016 Andrew Will Ciel du Cheval Vineyard Red Mountain 49.95 net

57% Merlot, 43% Cabernet Franc
Average age of vines: 29 years
“We continue to see merit in keeping the blend of this wine close to a 50-50 split of Merlot and Cabernet Franc. These two varietals play off each other very well and create a much more focused version of this wine while still retaining a full structure and complexity without the addition of Cabernet Sauvignon.
(93+ points)… A red-fruited nose with a core of mineral-rich earth and red, floral notes. Medium to full-bodied on the palate, the wine expresses flavors of black plum and dusty, dark cherry, showing a clean and spicy wine. It will age well or can be enjoyed now with its food-friendly expression at its current stage. — Anthony Muller, Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate
(92+ points)… Violet, cassis, blueberry, cedar, and graphite notes. Loads of fruit balanced by good acidity. — Jeb Dunnuck

2016 Andrew Will Two Blondes Vineyard Yakima Valley 49.95 net

60% Merlot, 16% Cabernet Franc, 16% Cabernet Sauvignon, 8% Malbec
Average age of vines: 16 years
“This has a higher percentage of Merlot then typical in this blend because it was a great vintage for the varietal. When we create this blend, we do not have a set formula, we are looking for the wine that best shows off the vineyard for that vintage. Merlot is an early ripening grape and when the conditions and timing are right, you can get ample phenolic ripeness while maintaining freshness and elegance. Even though this was a warm vintage, Two Blondes is a cooler site, and this blend shows off this terroir in comparison to our other blends from warmer sites.”
(95 points)…This full-bodied, incredibly elegant red offers a great perfume of herbs, tobacco leaf, dark earth, and cassis. It shows remarkable purity and elegance (the hallmark of the vintage), a terrific mid-palate, and a great finish. This is a sensational Yakima Valley Bordeaux blend that needs a bit of bottle age and will evolve for many years. — Jeb Dunnuck
(93 points)…Red-fruited with a core of softer expressions, more delicate than the other red bottlings in the range. The florals and spices are elevated here with velvety, ripe red fruits on the medium to full-bodied palate, with a fresh acidity that runs through the center and on to the finish. It has a long, delicate finish that wears its finesse seductively and pleasingly. — Anthony Muller, Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate

2016 Andrew Will Champoux Vineyard Horse Heaven Hills 59.95 net

50% Merlot, 30% Cabernet Sauvignon, 20% Cabernet Franc
Average age of vines: 40 years
“We make the Champoux blend not just because we are such big fans of the vineyard, but because of the way that Merlot and Cabernet Franc shine from this site. This wine is the alter ego to Sorella. We almost always craft this wine with a nod towards a majority Cab Franc or Merlot in this case. This wine allows us to show the full range of Champoux Vineyard.”
(97 points)…One of the finest examples of this cuvée I’ve tasted, which comes from one of the top terroirs in the state and is in the slightly cooler Horse Heaven Hills AVA. Young, full-bodied, and primordial, it has incredible potential and is going to need a few years of bottle age to show its ultimate potential. Thrilling notes of blueberries, cassis, lead pencil shavings, and bouquet garni all define the bouquet. Remarkable purity and elegance, and picks up more floral and high-toned notes with time in the glass. — Jeb Dunnuck
(94+ points)…Opens with a rich and ripe expression of dark, dusty fruit interlaced with supporting oak tones on the nose. Dark cherry, black plum and cassis flood the palate with a structured focus and mineral tension, ending with a long, complex finish. Worth your time and money. — Anthony Muller, Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate

2016 Andrew Willv ‘Sorella’ Champoux Vineyard Horse Heaven Hil 69.95 net

80% Cabernet Sauvignon, 8% Merlot, 8% Cabernet Franc, 4% Petite Verdot
Average age of vines: 40 years
“Sorella is our signature wine. The 2016 vintage of Sorella will be the type of wine that has been praised as one of the best vintages since its inception in 1994. This was an excellent vintage for Cabernet Sauvignon and it shows in this Cabernet Sauvignon dominant blend. Sorella means sister in Italian and was named after Chris Camarda’s late sister, Jane Camarda.”
(99 points)…Flirting with perfection, its saturated purple color is followed by a La Mission Haut Brion-like bouquet of black and blue fruits, lavender, gravelly minerality, smoke tobacco, and chocolate. Deep, multi-dimensional, full-bodied, and with beautiful complexity, it’s a magical wine as well as the finest wine from this estate to date. Bravo! — Jeb Dunnuck
(96+ points)…The plump, juicy nose exudes aromas of luxurious, elegant fruit characteristics of ripe blackberry and dark plum along with a layered core of oak and a structured floral bouquet. Exciting and thought-provoking on the full-bodied palate, fruit and spices radiate with the precision and focus of world-class wine, building to a plushier, fruit-forward expression on the mid-palate, yet showing a mineral focus. The finish is long and winding, with layers that continue to evolve on the palate, unfolding to a generous and intricate lingering expression. Bravo! — Anthony Muller, Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate
