Lemelson Vineyards Thea's Selection Pinot Noir 2005
The Stermer Vineyard Pinot noir combines enticing aromas with a mélange of pure fruit flavors that include red and black raspberry, black cherry, and blackberry. We find this one of the most balanced and seductive wines we've made from the vineyard. On the nose, the Stermer hints at black cherry, roses, vanilla, and anise notes. These aromas are mirrored by layered flavors of black and red fruit, framed with very ripe, sweet tannins. This medium-bodied wine has a ultra-soft and velvety finish.
One of my favorite Oregon Pinots. It is not a massive Pinot like Argyle makes, but it is not super subtle like many of the Oregon Pinots can be. Smooth and balanced, finesse with structure. Pair with a lighter dish; lemon chicken would pair well.
Classic Willamette earthiness with balanced berries, a subtle smokiness and terrific finish. Heaven with salmon in a red pepper sauce. Super smooth. Wow I want some more!
Dry with a touch of spice. Java and earth rimmed by violets and cherry with a palate of licorice, cherry, black raspberry, orange peel, and clove. Long finish with a touch of spice. Pairs with roasted or grilled salmon, as well as lamb.
lush and complex
Mmmmmmm, mmmmmm good
