Penner-Ash Pinot Noir 2017

Willamette Valley, Oregon, United StatesPenner-Ash is all about delicacy. This is buoyed by floral notes that are the overriding background of this plummy, spicy, savoury, black cherry pinot noir. Penner-Ash hasn’t skipped a beat since they sold Jackson Family Farms. However, I’m guessing the daily slog of owning a winery has been lifted from their shoulders, allowing the energy to go into making exceptional wine. 2017 spent ten months in 29% new French oak plus older barrels, leaving the oak influence to a bare minimum other than to oxygenate the juice. Grilled salmon is the match.Tasted: 22 December 2019Tasted by: Anthony GismondiPrices: BC 58.99 select private retailers AB 45.99 select private retailers SK 60.99 special order MB 60.99 special Producer: Penner-Ash Wine CellarsDistributors: Summit Fine Wines
