ABOUT THE WINE
In 1998, Lynn started Penner-Ash Wine Cellars with her husband, Ron, carefully crafting small releases of Pinot Noir and Syrah, while still working at the Rex Hill winery. In 2001 Lynn left Rex Hill to focus full time on Penner-Ash. Investment in vineyards and cellar-facilities followed, and in 2005 Lynn and Ron designed and built their own winery on their own estate. Designed to be environmentally sustainable, the building appears as if part of the land itself and is a reflection of the values, spirit and winemaking philosophy of Penner-Ash.

TASTING NOTES
Sourced from the estate vineyards, and from other sites in the Willamette Valley, this is a classic example of the refined delicacy of Oregon Pinot noir. Black cherry, and a hint of damp earth on the aromas, with barrel-ageing adding a light wood-spice and a hint of vanilla. The palate is rounded and structures, with soft tannin nibbling at the finish. Strawberry and cherry, with a hint of blackberry, and the same touch of wood-spice characterise the palate.

FOOD PAIRING
Pairs well with a wide variety of dishes, but is probably best served with a mushroom risotto.

FRIARWOOD SAYS
The climate of Oregon is quite different from California, as the coastal hills rise up to become the Cascade Mountains. These form a rain-trap, which, along with higher altitudes, serves to cool the local climate, producing a region perfectly suited to the production of cool-climate varieties like Pinot noir, Chardonnay, and even Pinot blanc and Riesling.
