Lemelson Vineyards Thea's Selection 2010 Pinot Noir, $25.49-$31.99, 91+ points, appears as a radiant ruby red/sunburst orange with a clear rim.
Floral red cherry with subtle savory, sage, and warm earth notes, makes for a lovely aroma.
A moderately smooth early palate with fair acidity and mild tannin accentuates the easy drinkability of this wine; make no mistake, a good Pinot Noir is probably the easiest Red Wine in the world to drink copious quantities before you know it, and even with the usually lower alcohol content (Thea's Selection equals 13.5%), can catch you off guard.
The flavor profile follows the aroma, but adds late palate strawberry, and the finish is the trailing palate with just a touch of spice, and though not the most complex wine, it deliciously combines enough to more than satisfy.
