Wine Maker's Notes:
As our house cuvée, Thea’s Selection is a blend of fruit sourced from all seven of our 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 with black cherry, red currant and raspberry fruit that is nuanced by subtle spice notes of anise, cinnamon and baking spices. The rich, silky tannins give in to a long and robust finish that leaves the taste of strawberries and cocoa lingering on the palate. Drink now and for the next 7 years.
Eric Lemelson started Lemelson Vineyards with the intention of building something that would not only serve our consumers, but also the longevity of the pristine state that he calls home. Utilizing organic farming methods and gravity flow production, we craft estate grown Pinot noir, Pinot gris, Chardonnay, and Riesling from some of the finest vineyards in the Willamette Valley. Since the inaugural release of the 1999 vintage in October 2001, Lemelson Vineyards is dedicated to producing some of the world’s finest Pinot noir.
"Polished, expressive and deftly balanced, this is generous with its baby powder—accented cherry, lingonberry and floral flavors. Remains open and inviting through the long finish. Drink now through 2022."
