International Wine CellarRipe plums, vanilla and blackberry fruit flirts with jam in this intense, focused pinot that is seemingly big and full, yet also graceful and refined, ending with a touch of rose petal, lavender and black tea.

Wine SpectatorFresh and tangy, with lively green olive and floral overtones to the cherry and spice flavors. Lingers easily. Best from 2016 through 2022. 750 cases made.

Wine AdvocateThe 2012 Pinot Noir Estate Vineyard was hitherto known as "Dussin Vineyard" (the previous owners were bought out and so this cuvee was renamed). The vines were planted in 2003 on both volcanic and sedimentary rock, matured for ten months in 32% new French oak. The nose is more high-toned than Penner-Ash's other 2012, the fruit a little darker and rounded. Mulberry and red plums here, forming a sensual and caressing texture, though the soy-infused finish feels just a little raw at the moment.
