As a blend from blocks in each of our vineyards, itexpresses the vintage and our values read more...more than any other wine. The 2006Thea's is more fragrant than we remember. The nose combines floralaromas of roses and violets with raspberry, framboise, boysenberry andbriary, earthy tones. The palate is sweetly fruited with plum, blackcherry and blueberry showing on the rich mid-palate, while the finishremains lively and fresh with subtle tarragon and earth."Winery Notes (hide)
Wine & SpiritsThearsquo;s Selection is Lemelsonrsquo;s ldquo;measuring stickrdquo; Pinot Noir, as it is a blend of blocks from the different estate vineyards. This elegant release emphasizes aromas of pungent herbs, lifted with hints of rose petal and briary berry. In the mouth there is a lively, sappy, fruit-centric focus, showing concentrated raspberry (framboise) flavors. In short, a thoroughly delicious bottle that makes the case for blends over most single-vineyard offerings in Oregon.
