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.

88 Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - July 2009
($25) Light gold color. Very tight nose suggests lime zest, stony minerality and white pepper, all lifted by a light floral quality. Then steely and tight in the mouth, with bitter citrus and mineral flavors and a deeper pear quality. Tight and firm on the back end but not overly dry, with a kick of bitter pear skin that lingers nicely. This would work well with raw shellfish.
