2008 Penner Ash "Dussin Estate Vineyard" Willamette Valley Pinot Noir

SKU #1060966 93 points Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The 2008 Pinot Noir Estate Dussin Vineyard underwent a native fermentation with elevage in 40% new oak. Dark ruby in color, this exceptionally perfumed Pinot displays an aromatic array of wood smoke, toast, floral notes, black cherry, and black raspberry. This leads to an elegantly styled, spicy, focused, impeccably balanced wine with excellent volume, intensity of flavor, and a lengthy, seamless finish. It merits a minimum of 3-4 years of cellaring. Lynn Penner-Ash took full advantage of the outstanding Pinot Noir fruit provided by the 2008 vintage. Inner quote mark (10/2010)

93 points Int'l Wine Cellar

Outer quote mark Vivid ruby. A drop-dead sexy bouquet of intense red and dark berry preserves, incense and potpourri, along with a suggestion of spicecake. Lush, palate-coating black raspberry and cherry compote flavors are braced by tangy acidity and framed by velvety tannins. Vibrant and penetrating pinot, with excellent finishing clarity and spicy persistence. These vines are quite young, having been planted in 2003, according to Lynn Penner-Ash. Inner quote mark (7/2010)

92 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark This is broad and ripe, featuring dark berry and smoky, minerally flavors that compete for attention on a light, airy frame. Firm tannins mark this for the cellar, but the generosity of flavor should carry it well. Inner quote mark (8/2010)
