About Penner-Ash Wine Cellars
Nestled between the Chehalem Mountains and the Red Hills of Dundee, Penner-Ash’s picturesque winery sits on an 80 acre estate, 15 of which is planted to Pinot Noir. The M.O. around here is rich, assertive Pinot that nicely balances freshness and palate impact. One would have to look no further than the Estate Dussin Vineyard Pinot Noir to understand what we mean.

($45) Red with a bright rim. Powerful aromas of exotic oak spice and medicinal cherry are accented by bitter chocolate and dried rose. A big, lush, mouthfilling pinot with a round texture and dense, sweet cassis and smoky kirsch flavors that build and expand without losing their precision. Really stains the palate on the back, finishing on floral and dark berry notes.
