Tasting Notes

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.

Staff Pick Notes

There's something about an Oregonian Pinot Noir that has a special place in my heart. It carries the fruit and spice of a California Pinot, while showcasing the elegance and earth of a red Burgundy. The Lemelson "Thea's Selection" Willamette Valley Pinot Noir is no different. Eric Lemelson fell in love with Oregon Pinot Noir and planted his first vineyard in 1995. This "house cuvée" showcases grapes from all seven of his certified organic vineyards (spanning three AVAs) and presents a true taste of the Willamette Valley. Ripe black Cherries, red raspberry, and currents fill the nose with elegance while anise, black tea, and sweet baking spice add a dimension of earthiness. This wine is plush on the palate while a cheerful freshness and polished tannins rounds out and balances the wine. It was an absolute pleasure to taste.

Oregon

The largest wine region in Oregon is the Willamette Valley, lying between the cities of Portland and Eugene and home to most of Oregon’s wineries. As it does not have one homogeneous climate, it has been broken up into several different AVAs. In the best of them, the perfect amounts of wind, rain, sun exposure, and altitude combine to give Pinot Noir the warm days and cool nights it needs in...
