Ken Wright, Shea Vineyards Pinot Noir!

Row #7: Shea Vineyards' Coveted Fruit!

Lucky Row #7!

This is not just any Pinot Noir fruit, but rather Row #7 within Shea Vineyards.

With his eye on only the finest fruit, "Block 7 is Ken's favorite block; it is a very important block to us" claimed Asa Sarver, Ken Wright's National & International Sales Manager.

Shea is one of the most iconic Willamette Valley vineyards. Many acclaimed winemakers - including Ken Wright Cellars - have long-term contracts to buy Shea fruit and produce their own "Shea" label. Few if any make a better Shea than Ken Wright Cellars.

How did he secure this exclusive parcel? Because he helped establish Shea Vineyards many years ago as a premier site, Ken has been able to get his pick of the most prized fruit. This exclusive fruit has such character and importance in the Ken Wright bottling that the block number made it's way to the label. If you look at the lower left corner of the label, you will notice a red "7" on the lower left post.

Whether it's the magic of Block #7, or the skill at which he crafts his wine, there is no denying that Ken Wright makes amazing Pinot Noir.

$54.95 per bottle / $659.40 per case


From three small blocks from the Shea Vineyard, Ken Wright's Shea is predominantly Block # 7. This particular vintage of Ken Wright Shea Vineyards Pinot boasts floral and spice with focused dark cherry fruit, anise and cola. The wine has wonderful aromas of fresh picked raspberries, cranberries, baking spices, and pipe tobacco with flavors of dark cherry, strawberry and blueberry. From amazing back-to-back vintages, the 2015 Shea is one of the finest we have tasted.
