The bottle we drank from sat open for a little over an hour before being poured. Color was a light-medium ruby. Lovely nose of dark cherry, strawberry, cedar, pencil shavings. This wine had a great balance of acidity and tannins, both evident but not overpowering. The fruit flavors were the same as those I smelled with the addition of sweet spices and dark cocoa powder. Long, complex finish with what seemed to me a mix of savory and baking spices. I'd consider this to be leaning a little towards old-world but with fruit that is ripe without going too far. Extremely enjoyable to drink. 93+ with some probable upside.
Sounds good Bill.
Penner Ash is one of my favorite Oregon pinot makers.
Have some of this at the store. Thanks for the TN.
Life without wine?...... Yeah Right.
