Penner-Ash Pas de Nom 2009
Black cherry and currant combined with floral notes of fresh rose and violet on the nose. Refined and silky tannins build for a textured, supple and sweet palate of red raspberry, black berry and baking spice. Finishes with expressive sweet wood vanilla notes and resonating spice. The 2009 Pas de Nom is a 10 barrel selection from five of our favorite vineyards located in three different AVA's in the northern Willamette Valley.
Lynn started Penner-Ash Wine Cellars with husband Ron in 1998, carefully crafting small amounts of Pinot noir and Syrah, while she was still at Rex Hill. Their early success with the label caused them to dream of what they could create and in 2001 they began building the Penner-Ash brand full time. Penner-Ash has achieved impressive growth, going from 125 cases of Pinot noir in 1998 to a projected 8,000 cases of Pinot noir and Syrah in 2007.
