Penner-Ash Willamette Valley Pinot Noir 2017
|Region||United States, Oregon, Willamette Valley|
The 2017 Pinot Noir Willamette Valley has a pale to medium ruby color and opens with crunchy cranberries, blackberries, pomegranate, dried herbs and dusty earth with touches of bitter peel and bark. The light-bodied, silky palate offers pure, earth-laced, crunchy fruits, finely grained and fresh on the earthy finish. "We picked some grapes early and some later and blended them, in an effort to retain natural acidity without having to acidify," says winemaker Lynn Penner-Ash. 8,659 cases produced.
