Penner-Ash “Estate” Willamette Valley (Oregon) Pinot Noir 2015

Standard

I brought in a range of Oregon pinots in the second half of last year and they proved very popular. The Zena Crown Conifer sold out and the Slope, Sum and Penner-Ash Shea Vineyard were well received too.

I held off promoting the Penner-Ash “Estate” Pinot Noir as it didn’t have a rating at the same time as the others.

It does now, with 92 points from Wine Spectator (sorry, I don’t subscribe to their digital version so haven’t seen the actual words), 90 points from Decanter and 90 from James Suckling.

International ratings tend to be, shall we say, “less exuberant” than some of the Australian ones. Maybe that’s a good thing but they’re generally less entertaining too.

This wine sells for US$65 at cellar door (ie. S$85).

Enjoy!
