When a winemaker works closely with the same vineyard for more than a decade, and has the ability to farm it however they want, the best will guide the grapes into producing truly world-class fruit.  A perfect example is the Abbott Claim Vineyard in the Yamhill-Carlton, which Iconic Oregon winemaker Ken Wright purchased in the late 1990’s and planted to Pinot Noir in 2001.  Ken’s first Pinot Noir bearing the Abbott Claim moniker was in 2004 and by the 2012 vintage, it ranked #1 in the World on the Wine Enthusiast Top 100. As a winemaker, he has more accolades that we can list, and he was also the founding winemaker at Domaine Serene.  He was also the first Oregon winemaker to be featured on the cover of the Wine Spectator where he was named a “Master of Oregon Pinot Noir.”

In 2017 the Beck Family who own Angela Winery purchased the vineyard from Wright, and they hired Ken as their winemaker.  They have Mark Gould who originally planted the vineyard, managing it now and the results simply need to be tasted.

From James Suckling, “This has a sense of complexity and some restrained and composed fruit. Aromas of strawberries and ripe cherries lead to a juicy and serene palate with attractively fleshy presence at the finish. Very silky. Drink or hold.” 93 Points

“… Angela Estate “Abbott Claim” Pinot Noir… This wine is well-named, as drinking it is a religious experience…”
– Neil Pendock, January, 2015

“Why is this one of the finest wines in Oregon? Perhaps because Ken Wright is behind it.  This won a unanimous double gold medal at the Great Northwest Wine Competition.”
