Eric Lemelson came to wine in a roundabout way. And Oregonian since the late 70’s, his first career was not as a farmer, but as an environmental lawyer with a strong commitment to “green principles.” Eric fell in love with the sensual and seductive nuances of Oregon Pinot Noir in the early 90’s. He planted his first vineyard in 1995 and the rest, as they say, is history.
Lemelson’s wines have gone on to gain much acclaim and his 2016 Thea’s Selection Pinot Noir is super. Lemelson’s “house cuvee,” it is a blend of grapes from all seven of his certified organic, estate vineyards. It spans three different Willamette Valley AVA’s and it is a true taste of the Willamette Valley. Ripe and inviting, it sports a nose of dark cherry and red currant with underpinnings of anise, black tea, and brown spice. On the palate, it’s rich, silky, and luxurious. Need I say more?
I won’t, but the critics will. Suckling described it very favorably. “Dark cherries and toasted spices make for a captivating nose with plenty of immediate interest. The deeply rich dark-cherries on the palate are cast along fluid, long and sturdy tannin lines. Strong finish.” So did Wine Enthusiast. “This entry-level blend bangs a home run in this vintage. From its lush, lightly musky nose to its rich pie-worthy mix of blueberries, blackberries and cherries, this is simply irresistible. Well-woven Asian spices and light seams of chocolate, coffee and black tea all combine in a thoroughly satisfying, beautifully integrated wine with another half decade of life ahead.” Sounds good doesn’t it?
Does anyone know how to cook duck? If you do, contact me and I’ll let you make it for me and we’ll enjoy this bottle together:) It’s perfect for game birds, but it’s also quite good with no food at all.
