Like his other wines from this site planted in 1989 that he leases long-term Wright labels his 2010 Pinot Noir Guadalupe Vineyard simply "Willamette Valley" because officially it's in the Dundee Hills but shares the sedimentary soil of neighboring Yamhill Carlton rather than the defining red Jory (eroded volcanic) soil of the Dundee appellation. Tart-edged juicy red raspberry is pungently wreathed in peat-like smoke; mouthwateringly tinged with salt; and invigoratingly imbued with the bitter crunch of berry seeds all of which stand in contrast with a leathery streak that also runs all the way from nose to long tail. There is a juicy exuberance and a clarity of primary fruit here that I miss in many of the Pinots in the present collection and which makes me confident predicting that this will at the very least be worth following for half a dozen years during the course of which it will hopefully acquire more complexity. -David Schildknecht
