Lemelson Vineyards Thea's Selection Pinot Noir 2005

Winemaker's Notes:

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.

We didn’t take a typical route to entering the wine business, (if such a path actually exists!). Pinot noir is often a passion that finds you as much as you find it. As you may realize, however, once it’s got a hold of you, there’s no turning back.

We didn’t take a typical route to entering the wine business, (if such a path actually exists!). Pinot noir is often a passion that finds you as much as you find it. As you may realize, however, once it’s got a hold of you, there’s no turning back. We came to the world of wine from many different backgrounds: environmental policy, information technology, delivering babies , and several other professions, including wine wholesaling. Like other Pinot fanatics, we love what we do, and believe that our wines reflect our dedication to our craft. We also live and work as an extended family in our vineyards and in the winery. For several months during harvest, we see each other more than we see our spouses and children! We try to remember to give thanks throughout for the blessings of good land, good friends, and good work, and we definitely appreciate the beauty of Western Oregon on a daily basis! Herein are a few details about Who We Are. Read less

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.

A product of low yields and minimal intervention, this is a deeply fruited wine with fine tannin and firm, racy acidity. Solid quality from year to year. A complex Pinot Noir on the palate.
