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 , July/August 2011
Bright ruby-red. Cherry, violet, cracked pepper and woodsmoke on the nose, with a hint of raspberry coming up with air. Juicy, focused and spicy, with deep red and dark berry flavors and building sweetness. Gentle tannins add shape to the long, sappy, sweet finish. Much more approachable than the '08 bottling, which is a hands-off wine right now.
