Ken Wright, "Shea Vineyard" Pinot Noir

Shea Pinot Noir • Coveted Row #7
HOT OFF THE PRESS!

Lucky Row #7 just received 94 points from the Wine Spectator!

This is not just any Pinot Noir. This is coveted Row #7 within one of the most sought after Willamette Valley vineyards, "Shea Vineyards."

With his eye on sourcing 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 producers - including Ken Wright Cellars - have long-term contracts to buy Shea fruit and produce their own "Shea" label.

However, few if any make a better Shea than Ken Wright Cellars...and none have Row #7!

How did he secure this exclusive parcel?

Because he helped establish Shea Vineyards 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.
