2006 Lemelson Vinyards Pinot Noir Thea’s Selection
Appellation: Willamette Valley, Oregon
Notes: 100% Pinot Noir, 14.5% ABV. Color is a little dark and purple for Pinot, but I can still kinda see my fingers. Nose is some dust, dirt, cherry, a little candy. Cherry flavors, not jammy like I thought it might be based on the nose. A bit of spice, a little tea. Elegant and balanced, but not super complex. Nice structured tannins, good finish. I like this a lot, it will be a great match with a variety of foods. Drinking well now, has the structure to last for quite a while longer.
Price: $36.00 at Chesapeake Wine (a year ago).
