Is this Oregon? More like whoregon. Super slutty and overripe. We called it as California.

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

Not typical of Willamette; a bit more ripe and juicy than expected. Still, a solid Oregonian Pinot.

Beautiful smoke up front and developing fruit as it breathed. Big fan!

A bit too extracted for my taste, but really a pretty nice example of the willamette tea cherry nose. This would be a crowd pleaser.

Bit coarse. Nice aromatics. Perfumed. Will probably reward cellaring.

Last night I had dinner at Harry & Izzys Steakhouse in Indianapolis, IN and had the 2014 Penner Ash Willamette Valley Pinot Noir.
I had this with the 20oz Bone in Ribeye, grilled asparagus, French Onion Soup, redskined potatoes and creme brulee. This wine went very well with the meal.

The wine had a very tight nose and I had to swirl a lot in order to get it to open up. Once I did there were black berries, black cherry, cranberry, strawberry, cherry cola, anise, spice, tobacco and some smoke.

On the palate there was strawberry, raspberry, red plum, spice, cherry, mushroom and some forest floor.

This wine is medium bodied, medium to medium + acidity, medium silky tannins with a clean long finish.

A nice wine with enjoyable company makes for a wonderful evening. Nostrovia! 🍷🍷🍷.
