Wine AdvocateThe 2014 Pinot Noir Carter Vineyard comes from west-facing vines planted in 1983 and the parcel was purchased by Ken Wright last year. It has dark plum and boysenberry bouquet with subtle earthy tones, though it needs just a little more precision to come through. The palate is medium-bodied with a slightly savory entry, a "meaty" Pinot Noir with fine density on the slightly chewy finish that has a keen thread of acidity that maintains freshness.
