Purple Hands proprietor and winemaker Cody Wright was born to be a winemaker. Through various combinations of marriage and divorce, Cody ended up being influenced by both his father Ken Wright (Ken Wright Cellars) and by his step-dad Rollin Soles (Argyle, Roco), two old-timers with a lot of winemaking experience. So it is of little surprise that when Cody started making wine, it turned out well. Now, he has a long resume of top-notch wines with a real focus on pinot noir. Go figure.
This is Cody’s entry level wine and it is rich but also seamless and juicy, open-knit and immediately rewarding. Stick a straw in this and have fun. Drink it over the next five years.
From Suckling: "Strawberries, crushed raspberries, bark and cedar on the nose. It’s medium-bodied with rounded, ripe tannins. Plush and fleshy texture with a juicy core of ripe berries. Drink now.”
