2008 Ken Wright Freedom Hill Pinot Noir
"Bright red. Very fresh and expressive on the nose, displaying strawberry, raspberry, fresh flowers and a hint of blood orange. Racy, youthfully taut red fruit flavors are given spine by juicy acidity and are nicely framed by silky tannins. Gains intensity with air and finishes with very good clarity and spicy cut. Wright said that after this vineyard was replanted 10 to 12 years ago, with different contouring of the vines, "the tannins have become finer because the fruit is ripening more smoothly because of the new exposures. The wines used to be pretty ungiving when they were young but that isn't the case anymore." 93 Points - Josh Raynolds - International Wine Cellar
"Light in weight, this shows grippy tannins around a fresh-tasting core of cherry, currant and mineral flavors. A floral note lingers on the finish. Best from 2012 through 2016. 660 cases made." 90 Points - Wine Spectator
"Freedom Hill Vineyard is located in the Coast Range just south of Dallas, OR. The soil type is known as Bellpine, which is sedimentary in origin. The fruit from our 2.85 acre block is wholly Pommard clone. The vineyard was originally planted in 1980. Wines from this site were once the firmest and most structured that we worked with. After replanting from phylloxera devastation the site was refitted with a vertical shoot position trellis. This switch from a hanging trellis affords more shading of the fruit area. The less exposed berries have thinner skins and lighter tannin levels which allow the resulting wine to be lush and approachable at an earlier age. Approximately 340 cases are produced. The vineyard is owned and managed by Dan & Helen Dusschee." -Winery
"Located in rural Carlton, Oregon, Ken Wright Cellars is devoted to showcasing the inherent quality of selected vineyard sites. With a clarity and breadth that is unequaled by other varieties, we believe Pinot noir best expresses the character of these sites. Rather than stamping wine with a varietal trademark, Pinot noir is the ultimate vehicle for conveying the aroma, flavor and texture of the location in which it is grown."
"In planting, we pay particular attention to optimal site selection, new clonal and rootstock selection, and vine spacing and trellis systems modified to each individual site. Ownership, long term leasing and acreage contracts allow us total control over crop level. Fine-tuning our crop management throughout the growing season helps us achieve healthy, evenly mature and optimally ripe fruit."
"Well over thirty years of winemaking have taught a simple truth. Source is everything. When you work with sites that have a âtonâ of character, great things can happen. These great things cannot happen without a commitment by the vineyard owner to the health of the vineyard and extremely low crop levels that ensure intensity of aroma, flavor and texture." -Winery
The Wine Advocate and the Wine Enthusiast both scored this wine 88 points.
2005 La Gerla Brunello Di Montalcino
"The 2005 Brunello di Montalcino is impressive for its open-knit, expressive bouquet of violets, dark cherries, minerals, menthol and grilled herbs. Medium in body, the wine delivers gorgeous length and a polished, refined finish. It is a strong effort in this vintage."
"The estate's Brunello is made from vineyards in Castelnuovo dell'Abate (70%) and Canalicchio (30%). In 2005 La Gerla did not produce their Vigna gli Angeli bottling and opted instead to add that fruit to the regular bottling. Anticipated maturity: 2010-2020." 92 Points - Antonio Galloni - Wine Advocate
"Good medium-deep red. Flamboyant aromas of plum, raspberry and truffle are complicated by notes of exotic spices. Then juicy and fresh, with noteworthy precision to the red fruit and mineral flavors. Brisk and concentrated on the finish, displaying noteworthy length for an entry-level wine and polished, smooth tannins. This graceful wine remains light on its feet." 90 Points - Ian Dagata - International Wine Cellar
"An extensive aging program has beautifully shaped this Brunello. The wine shows balanced notes of fruit and spice with a smooth, silky texture. The density is not too thick or overdone and the wine would pair with pasta or risotto. " 90 Points - Wine Enthusiast
"The La Gerla property is situated at 320 metres above sea level, on the gentle slopes below Montalcino. This small wine estate has established itself as one of the great crus in this territory in the heart of Tuscany, delineated by the Orcia and Ombrone valleys."
"The owner, with his vivacious character, has succeeded in his goal of creating a small cru in Montalcino where the most modern technology is combined with the know-how of local men and one winemaker. At La Gerla, human intervention plays an important role is extracting excellent Tuscan products from the land."
"The farmhouse, with the characteristic name 'Colombaia' was once the property of the Biondi Santi family. They used it to make one of the best Brunellos in the area. Sergio Rossi purchased the property in 1976 and restructured it with care and attention to detail. Not long afterwards, in 1978, he created the trademark La Gerla."
"Today the estate has 11,5 hectares (28,41 acres) under vine and large modern cellars complete with the latest technology. Sergio Rossi is flanked by a united team of people that have helped him to achieve his goal; the winemaker, Vittorio Fiore, who has been with the estate from the start and is both a friend and a trusted professional, Alberto Passeri, agronomist and director of the estate, Marisa the cellar boss, Luca the vineyard overseer and Sonia who deals with the estate administration."
"Last but not least, Seriano, the first 'contadino' to work on the estate, has returned to the property. At La Gerla, as well as the development and continual evolution of our technology, we still give great importance to the people and the sentiments that are behind our wines and, for this reason, we couldnât give up on a local man, a real âilcineseâ with land and wine in his blood!" -Winery
