Lemelson Meyer Vineyard Pinot Noir 2018
|Region||United States, Oregon, Willamette Valley|
Shimmering ruby. A highly perfumed bouquet evokes fresh red and blue fruits, candied flowers and exotic spices, and a hint of cola emerges with air. Juicy and energetic in the mouth, offering appealingly sweet black raspberry and boysenberry flavors sharpened by a spicy flourish. Finishes very long and lively, with sneaky tannins and resonating florality. 43% new oak.
Richly fruity with a lush mix of blackberry and savory herbs, this is a forward, well-structured wine that brings a hint of iron ore. A whiff of smoke trails through the finish, along with some stiffer tannins. It was aged 15 months in 43% new French oak and the rest once filled.
A lovely, generous wine with vibrant cherry blossom and rose petal aromas opening to refined raspberry and savory spice flavors that build tension toward medium-grained tannins. Drink now through 2028. 372 cases made.
