Lemelson Thea's Selection Pinot Noir 2019
|Region||United States, Oregon, Willamette Valley|
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 red cherry, plum, black tea and a hint of lavender. Medium-bodied with fine, silky tannins. Bright acidity articulates the red fruit and berries with clarity and drive. Fresh cream at the finish. A total delight. Drink or hold.
Fruit for this wine comes from all seven of the winery's estate vineyards. Freshly ground cinnamon, cumin, mineral and black-cherry aromas lead to a palate that is well-delineated and juicy. There's plenty of structure wrapped around it all. It's gorgeous. Best after 2024.
The 2019 Pinot Noir Thea's Selection is rounded with its perfume of incense, fresh herbs, and raspberry liqueur. Medium-bodied and approachable, with fine tannins and notes of black cherry and tea leaf, this is a Pinot Noir with a darker profile but a lot of charm. It is ready to drink now or through 2028.
