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.
90 Points | International Wine Cellar , May/June 2008
($55) Youthful ruby-red. Deep blackberry and blueberry aromas are complicated by oak spices and pungent flowers. Fleshy dark fruit preserve flavors deliver a wallop of sweetness, with smoky herbs, spicy fruitcake and cracked pepper gaining strength on the long, velvety back end. This reminded me of a new-school northern Rhone wine. The richest and deepest pinot that I tasted this year at Penner-Ash, and undeniably impressive, but my girlie-man palate was more seduced by the Dussin and Shea bottlings.
