Alas, quite overripe for my palate, perhaps the product of a hot vintage. I don’t have a lot of experience with this producer. Boysenberries and violets, a bit of campfire. A plodder

A fresh starter, loaded with light, bright cherry and strawberry, some twiggy wood, low acidity.

Deep dark delicious. Surprisingly rich. A little forest floor, leather, chocolate, plum, star anise.

Tonight's wine is the 2015 Penner-Ash Willamette Valley Pinot Noir.

On the nose is cherry, raspberry, vanilla, cola, clove, caramel, oak and earth.

On the palate is cherry, raspberry, rose petal, vanilla, sassafrass, clove, big on the oak and earth.

This wine is medium bodied with medium acidity and medium to plus smooth fine tannin that leads to medium to long finish. Have a great week and be safe. Nostrovia! 🍷🍷🍷🍷

Lynn Penner-Ash and her husband, Ron, started Winery in 1998, focusding on small-lot productions. A beautiful nose with berry and floral scents dancing in the glass. Fresh fruit flavors, raspberry and sweet cherry, hints of vanilla spice, great balance with acidity. Firm tannins, lingering finish ending with cedar tones and a nudge of pepper. An enjoyable Pinot at a reasonable price. Has short term aging benefits, but why wait.
