Eric Lemelson planted his first vineyard in 1995, 5 years after moving to a Yamhill County farm from Portland, where he had lived since 1979. Two years later, he planted an additional 30 acres of Pinot Noir, the first vintage (1999) of Pinot Noir was released in October 2001. Ruby with vibrant red fruit aromas and gentle spice. Flavors of cherry and strawberry with notes of floral spice and licorice. Soft tannins on a lingering finish ending with fruit and mineral notes. Very Nice!

Quite dark Pinot, but headed towards savory in a nice way.

2000 and drank yesterday for my birthday. Yum . Still spicy but a lot of fruit dropped out. Lemelson is a favorite Oregon Pinot producer. You should try it.
