Situated on a due west slope in the Eastern foothills of the Yamhill-Carlton AVA, this small seven-acre vineyard is planted only in Pinot noir clones 777, 667 and Wadenswil. The soil is comprised of marine sediments known as Wellsdale and Willakenzie. These are sandy soils which drain quickly and hasten the ripening process. The vineyard is managed by Mark Gould and Taylor Varuska of Ken Wright Cellars. It is named after the Western Tanager, a brilliantly colored bird which is native to the area.
