Ken Wright Cellars Pinot Noir Nysa Vineyard 2005, 750mL (WA92) from The BPW - Merchants of rare and fine wines.

Ken Wright Cellars Pinot Noir Nysa Vineyard

750mL

Vintage: 2005
Region: US
Appellation: Willamette Valley

WA92
Rated 92 points by Robert Parker`s Wine Advocate: `The 2005 Pinot Noir `Nysa Vineyard` is dark ruby/purple-colored. It offers a splendid nose of pain grille, black cherry and blackberry. This is followed by a medium-bodied, intensely flavored wine with ample blue and black fruits and nicely integrated oak, acidity, and tannin. Although a bit austere now, it will blossom with 3-5 years in bottle and drink well through 2025. Ken Wright has a Syrah/Claret project under the Tyrus Evans label. The fruit is sourced from southern Oregon and eastern Washington. I tasted four wines, all of them outstanding. I list them without tasting notes: 2004 Claret `Del Rio Vineyard - 90; 2004 Claret `Ciel du Cheval Vineyard` - 91; 2005 Syrah, Walla Walla - 92; 2005 Syrah `Del Rio Vineyard` - 90+. Ken Wright Cellars has long been one of the reference points for Pinot Noir fanatics. Ken Wright is the ultimate terroirist, stating on his web site (which I highly recommend reading) that the value of Pinot Noir is that it is the perfect vehicle for expressing the characteristics of the site in which it is grown. He says that the secret to making great Pinot Noir is `?learning how to farm. Every vineyard has its own issues.` Tel. (800) 571-6825; www.kenwrightcellars.com. Also tasted: 2005 Pinot Blanc (91), 2005 Chardonnay `Celilo Vineyard` (93)`
