Ken Wright Shea Vineyard Pinot Noir 2014
Wine SpectatorTaut and deftly wrought, with pretty mulberry and pomegranate flavors on a transparent frame, veiling the extended finish in delicately peppery tannins. Has presence and persistence. Best from 2018 through 2024. 1,465 cases made.
Wine AdvocateThe 2014 Pinot Noir Shea Vineyard, from vines planted in 1989 (since affected by phylloxera), offers one of the best aromatics from Ken Wright. I appreciate the delineation here, precise and focused with lifted red fruit mixed with stony, woodland aromas. The palate is fresh and vibrant with crisp acidity, bright red fruit intermingle with fine mineralité, with a vivacious finish that is very satisfying. This should age with style.
