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.
92 Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - July/August 2012
(made from fruit harvested at 22.4 degrees Brix): Vivid ruby-red. An exotically perfumed bouquet evokes candied cherry and black raspberry, with musky herb and dried rose nuances. Sappy, penetrating red and dark berry flavors show very good intensity and pick up subtle cola and sassafras qualities with air. Finishes smoky and very long, with resonating spiciness and lingering mocha and cola notes.
