Wine Spectator: A hint of green olive adds piquancy to the light, vivid raspberry and guava fruit, coming together with refinement and purity as the finish lingers deftly. Shows depth and transparency. Drink now through 2020.

The Abbot Claim site is a portion of the original John F. Abbott Donation Land Claim and lies in the middle of Savannah Ridge, a small east-west ridgeline of sedimentary rock just east of Carlton. This is a consistent broad face of land with soil depths of 30 inches to mother rock. Elevation ranges from 400' to 475' and the inclination is S-SE. Soils are mostly Wellsdale with some areas of Willakenzie, Melbourne and Peavine. All of them lie atop mother rock of fractured sandstone and siltstone.

As would be expected from a vineyard in the Yamhill-Carlton District the wine is very darkly colored, dense and lush. Fruits tend to be darker such as plum, cassis and black cherry.

Ken and Karen Wright own the vineyard. Mark Gould is the vineyard manager.
