Penner-Ash ‘Dussin Vineyard’ Willamette Valley Pinot Noir 2010

Pinot Noir from USA
Review Date : 02-Aug-2013
Dark ruby-red colour, the bouquet is full and even, openly expressed with aromas of savoury, ripe red fruits and some perfume lift. Medium-full bodied, the fruit is restrained, but the palate is one of mouthfilling presence. Softly lush, ripe dark fruit flavours are underlined by dark herb interest. There is fine-grained tannin extraction and good acid balance, but the flavours sit quite subdued overall. The wine is one of harmony and the flavours flow effortlessly to a moderately long, sweetly nuanced finish. This is a well-weighted, openly aromatic Pinot Noir with subdued flavours, but good mouthfeel. 5-6+ years. Fruit from the ‘Dussin Vineyard’, Yamhill-Carlton AVA, clones 114, 115, Pommard, 667, 777, vines 7 y.o., fermented to 13.0% alc., the wine aged 10 months in 38% new French oak. 575 cases made. 18.0/20 Jul 2013 RRP USD $60.00
