Lemelson Thea's Selection Pinot Noir 2017
|Region||United States, Oregon, Willamette Valley|
As our house cuvee, Thea’s Selection is a blend of fruit sourced from all seven of our organic, estate vineyards that span three different Willamette Valley AVAs. As such, it is a wonderful representation of the vintage across all of our sites. The nose is inviting with blueberry and blackberry fruit that is nuanced by subtle spice notes of black licorice, black tea, cinnamon and graham cracker. The rich, silky tannins give in to a long and robust finish that leaves the taste of black cherries and dark chocolate lingering on the palate.
Aromas of ripe mixed cherries and berries sit within attractively spicy and earthy nuances. There’s a succulent feel to the palate with a long, plush stream of fresh, fleshy red and dark cherries. Long, cherry-pip finish. Drink or hold.
Dynamic and well-knit, with vibrant black raspberry, spiced tea and violet accents that gather richness toward medium-grained tannins. Drink now through 2027. 8,572 cases made.
Bright ruby-red. Fresh red and dark berries, cherry, candied flowers and a hint of spiciness on the perfumed nose. Juicy and seamless in the mouth, offering bitter cherry, raspberry and spicecake flavors that unfurl steadily and become sweeter on the back half. Finishes on a juicy berry note, displaying well-knit tannins and lingering spice and floral notes. 30% new oak.
