This is the first vineyard directly owned and developed by Ken Wright Cellars. The vineyard is located in the Yamhill-Carlton District northeast of Carlton. Planting began in 1999 with 4.5 acres of clones 777 and 115 on phylloxera resistant rootstock. Total planted acreage as of spring 2002 is approximately 17 acres. Vine spacing is 6.5' x 4' and the elevations averages 450'. The soil is comprised of marine sediments known as Wellsdale and Willakenzie. These are sandy soils which drain quickly and hasten the ripening process.

Wine SpectatorSupple, open-textured and inviting, letting its plum, currant and sweet spice flavors float easily through the refined texture, hovering over the long, delicate finish. Drink now through 2018. 1,790 cases made.

Wine AdvocateThe medium ruby-colored 2008 Pinot Noir Savoia displays an ethereal perfume of cedar, spice box, rose petal, and assorted red fruits. Leaner and racier on the palate than its peers, this is an elegantly styled effort with impeccable balance and a lengthy, seamless finish. Give it 1-2 years to fill out and drink it through 2020.

Wine EnthusiastThe Savoya Pinot Noir displays excellent concentration and grip and its raspberry/cherry fruit gives it a tart, racy flair. There's an herbal edge to the tannins, but overall this is very well crafted, balanced and built for medium-term cellaring.
