Each year we select only the best vineyards for our Single Vineyard Series. Lee Vineyard earned its own bottling in 1998. The wine is highly fragrant with rose petal, sweet tobacco, strawberry jam, crushed blackberries, black pepper and hibiscus aromas. The medium body is rich and full up front, turning to sweet tannins, toast, and chocolate mint on the long, cherry finish. Huge fruit at the front of the palate and more austere toward the finish. It was delicious in late 2000 and will continue to be good for several years.
Leg of lamb, roasted with nuts and fruits such as apple chunks and whole grapes or dried plums and apricots, tastes exquisite when paired with the Lee Pinot Noir.
