Lemelson Thea's Selection Pinot Noir 2016
|Region||United States, Oregon, Willamette Valley|
This entry-level blend bangs a home run in this vintage. From its lush, lightly musky nose to its rich pie-worthy mix of blueberries, blackberries and cherries, this is simply irresistible. Well-woven Asian spices and light seams of chocolate, coffee and black tea all combine in a thoroughly satisfying, beautifully integrated wine with another half decade of life ahead.
Vibrant and generous, with expressive raspberry, orange zest and tarragon flavors that take on complexity toward polished tannins. Drink now through 2026. 11,278 cases made.
Deep red. Ripe red fruit, floral, musky earth and spice qualities on the slightly shy nose. Offers supple black raspberry, cherry-cola and spicecake flavors that are given spine by a core of juicy acidity. Shows very good clarity and a touch of bitter chocolate on the velvety finish, which is framed by smooth, even tannins. (30% new French oak)
