Winemaker Notes

On the nose, delicate hints of honeysuckle and jasmine blend harmoniously with lively aromas of key lime and apple. The palate further complements these aromas with fresh honeycomb sweetness that is quickly curbed by notes of just picked green apple, creating the perfect balanced acidity in every sip.

Critical Acclaim

All Vintages
WS 91
Wine Spectator

A pretty wine, with bold honeysuckle aromas that lead to crisp yet oily-textured apricot, spice nut and orange peel flavors. Drink now.

RP 91
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

The 2018 Viognier has a nose of honeysuckle, meringue, ripe melon and a peachy core. It's medium-bodied and gently rounded in texture with intense but lively flavors and a long, floral-tinged finish.

V 91
Vinous

Vivid yellow. Ripe, spice-tinged apricot and pear nectar aromas, with a subtle floral note in the background. In a generous, fleshy style, showing good heft to the juicy orchard and pit fruit flavors. A sweetening honey note builds on the persistent finish, which features building floral and gingery spice qualities. Drinking window: 2020 - 2022

Penner-Ash, Oregon
Penner-Ash Lynn Penner-Ash, Winemaker Winery Image
Penner-Ash Wine Cellars embodies the spirit and passion of small producers focusing on Pinot Noir in the northern Willamette Valley, Oregon. After working for some of Napa's premier wineries and Rex Hill Vineyards in Oregon, winemaker Lynn Penner-Ash and her husband, Ron, started Penner-Ash Wine Cellars in 1998. In the winery, the focus is on small-lot indigenous yeast fermentation with extended cold soaks to extract a rich, fruit-focused, textured mouth feel. Each lot is treated individually and depending on the outcome, either blended into their reserve quality Willamette Valley Pinot Noir or bottled separately as a vineyard designate.

Home to some of America’s most celebrated Pinot Noir, Oregon maintains a tight focus on small production, high quality wine even while the state’s industry enjoys steady growth. As a world-renowned wine region, Oregon has more than 700 wineries and is home to well over 70 grape varieties. With a mostly Mediterranean climate, its cooler and wetter regions lie in the west, close to the Pacific Coast.

By far the most reputed region is the Willamette Valley, which is further subdivided into six smaller appellations: Chehalem Mountains, Dundee Hills, Eola-Amity Hills, McMinnville, Ribbon Ridge and Yamhill-Carlton.

The Valley’s obvious success story is with Pinot Noir, which here takes on a personality that could be described in general terms as somewhere in between the wines of California and Burgundy—and is often more affordable than either one. The best Willamette Pinot noir has a rare combination of red and black fruit, elegant balance, high acidity and rustic earth. While completely enjoyable in their youth, some of the better, single vineyard or appellation-specific Pinot noirs can often benefit from some cellar time.

Other AVAs in Oregon’s west worth noting include Umpqua Valley and Rogue Valley.

In the east are Snake River Valley, which overlaps into Idaho, and Columbia Valley, which Oregon shares with Washington. Summers are hot and dry in these regions but winters are cold and rainy.

Pinot Gris, Chardonnay, Riesling and Pinot blanc also grow successfully in Oregon.

Full-figured and charmingly floral, Viognier is one of the most important white grapes of the northern Rhône where it is used both to produce single varietal wines and as an important blending grape. Look for great New World examples from California, Oregon, Washington and cooler parts of Australia. Somm Secret—Viognier plays a surprisingly important role in the red wines of Côte Rôtie in the northern Rhône. About 5% Viognier is typically co-fermented with the Syrah in order to stabilize the color, and as an added benefit, add a subtle perfume.
