Lexème means “root of a word” in french and just look at what a fun label this bottle has! A unique red blend of Tempranillo, Gamay and Pinot, this wine has notes of earth and fruit with a wonderfully long finish. It was made with grapes grown in Oregon’s Umpqua Valley by husband and wife winemaking duo Monja and Christopher. If you’re near the small town of Elkton, make an appointment to visit their downtown tasting room so you can taste several of their wines.
