Willamette Valley
Pinot Noir 2015


92 Points  The Wine Spectator

"Expressive and refined, with pretty raspberry and lavender aromas and tightly focused blackberry and spiced cinnamon flavors that lead toward polished tannins. Drink now through 2023. 9,100 cases made.
- TF. " 

91 Points  Vinous
"A refined bouquet with perfumed red cherry and wild strawberry scents; there is a hint of vanilla pod from the new oak. The palate is medium-bodied with sweet ripe tannin, boysenberry and raspberry fruit, a fine line of acidity and a precise finish. This is a lovely  Pinot Noir."

90 Points  Decanter
A refined and very fine wine with medium, velvety tannins and dried strawberries. Medium body, a polished texture and a flavorful finish. Floral undertones. "

"Fresh raspberry, red plums with a hint of subtle cedar. The ?ne texture and silky tannins enhance the vanilla and leather notes on the finish."

Founded in 1998, by husband and wife team Lynn and Ron Penner-Ash, Penner-Ash Wine Cellars embodies the spirit and passion of a boutique producer specializing in Pinot Noir, Syrah and Riesling from the northern Willamette Valley. With a portfolio spanning the 7 major AVAs of the Willamette Valley, Penner-Ash sources from some of the region’s most distinguished vineyards, including the Shea Vineyard in Yamhill-Carlton, the Bramble Hill Vineyard in Ribbon Ridge, and the Zena Crown Vineyard in Eola-Amity.

The first woman winemaker of note in Oregon, Lynn began her career in the Willamette Valley with Rex Hill Vineyards. Lynn has been described as a master blender, skillfully working with each lot to bring forth the truest expression of a given vineyard site. In the winery, Lynn and her team focus on small-lot indigenous yeast fermentation with extended cold soaks to extract rich, fruit-focused, wines with a textured mouth feel.

 In 1998, Lynn started Penner-Ash Wine Cellars with husband Ron, 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 Lynn focused full time on building Penner-Ash Wine Cellars. In 2005, Lynn and Ron designed and built their sustainable, gravity-flow estate winery surrounded by estate vineyards, a building that seems to spring from the land itself and is a reflection of the values, spirit and winemaking philosophy of Lynn and Ron. Over the years, Penner-Ash has achieved impressive growth, going from 125 cases of Pinot Noir in 1998 to 15,000 cases of Pinot Noir, Syrah, Viognier and Riesling in 2015. Lynn has served on the board of the International Pinot Noir Celebration from 1996-2002, and acted as President in 1998. She is actively involved in the Salud! Barrel Auction and was a member of the steering committee from 1998 to 2001. Lynn has served on the Oregon Pinot Camp Board of Directors and is currently active on the curriculum committee.

Lynn’s interest in winemaking grew out of an early passion for the sciences. After a summer working for the Smithsonian Institute in Washington, D.C., she studied Botany at the University of California, Davis, the birthplace of the American wine industry. In her junior year she changed her major to Viticulture.

Then, after working the graveyard shift during crush at Domaine Chandon, she changed her degree again,from Viticulture to Enology.

After graduation, Lynn worked at Stag’s Leap Wine Cellars, Domaine Chandon, and Chateau St. Jean. Intrigued by the emerging wine industry, Lynn and her husband Ron moved to Oregon in 1988 where Lynn became winemaker at Rex Hill Vineyards, becoming the first female winemaker hired in Oregon. Consistently producing award-winning wines, she became Rex Hill’s President and Chief Operating Officer in 1993 and continued on with Rex Hill until March 2002.
