Lemelson Vineyards Thea's Selection Pinot Noir 2018
Willamette Valley, OR
93 pts. James Suckling:
"Cherries, watermelon, stewed strawberries, mocha and nutmeg on the nose. It’s medium-bodied with powdery tannins and spicy, cedary character. Polished. Drink now or hold."
What an exceptional value for a top-notch Willamette Valley Pinot! To us, this wine exemplifies classic Pinot Noir from this region. Lively acidity, which is common in Oregon Pinots, makes it a great food-pairing wine. It goes really well with Italian food with tomato-based sauces, like lasagna or pizza. It also stands up really well to spicy foods. And the nice long finish is an added plus, for sure!
FROM THE WINERY
As our house cuvee, Thea’s Selection is a blend from our seven 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 and earthy with black cherry, black currant and plum fruit that is nuanced by subtle spice notes of black tea, chocolate, mushroom and lavender. This wine is rich and supple with silky tannins and a juicy sweet core which transitions into a long finish that leaves the taste of brambly fruit on the palate.
