Wine Spectator  

Light and tangy, with juicy raspberry fruit and lively acidity, coming together harmoniously on the extended, loam-accented finish. Best from 2015 through 2018.

Wine Enthusiast  

"A lovely Canary Hill, though a bit lighter than previous vintages, this elegant, smoky wine offers tart wild-berry fruit with a lightly earthy foundation."

Wine Advocate  

Located in the Eola Hills very near and planted at the same time as his own Canary Hill site, though at lower elevation, Wright's 2010 Pinot Noir Carter is strikingly complex and intriguing in aroma, featuring pit-accented cherry; pungent citrus oils, peat, and dried green herbs; as well as mushroom, all of which reconvene on a zesty, bright, tart, firm palate, carrying into a finish of vibratory intensity. There is more than enough primary juiciness here to banish any sense of drying that might otherwise have been induced by the wine's firm tannins. And here I feel on pretty confident footing in predicting at least the better part of a decade of interest.

Ken Wright Tasting Notes  

Located just 1 mile from Canary Hill in the Eola Hills, Carter Vineyard is lower on the hillside yet has a leaner and less fertile soil. It is mainly Nekia soil, which is formed from weathered basic rock. It lies at an elevation of 325' and was planted in 1983. This bottling is comprised of the Wadenswil, Dijon 777, Dijon 667, Dijon 115, and Pommard clones. The wine is much firmer than Canary Hill in its youth but evolves beautifully after a few years in bottle to show dark fruits and fresh, healthy earth scents.
