As our house cuvee, Thea's Selection is a blend of fruit sourced from all seven of our organic, estate vineyards that span three different Willamette Valley AVAs. As such, it is a wonderful representation of the vintage across all of our sites. The nose is inviting with black cherry, red currant and blackberry fruit that is nuanced by subtle spice notes of black licorice, black tea, cinnamon and graham cracker. The rich, silky tannins give in to a long and robust finish that leaves the taste of strawberries and dark chocolate lingering on the palate.

This entry-level blend bangs a home run in this vintage. From its lush, lightly musky nose to its rich pie-worthy mix of blueberries, blackberries and cherries, this is simply irresistible. Well-woven Asian spices and light seams of chocolate, coffee and black tea all combine in a thoroughly satisfying, beautifully integrated wine with another half decade of life ahead.

Vibrant and generous, with expressive raspberry, orange zest and tarragon flavors that take on complexity toward polished tannins. Drink now through 2026. 11,278 cases made.

Deep red. Ripe red fruit, floral, musky earth and spice qualities on the slightly shy nose. Offers supple black raspberry, cherry-cola and spicecake flavors that are given spine by a core of juicy acidity. Shows very good clarity and a touch of bitter chocolate on the velvety finish, which is framed by smooth, even tannins. (30% new French oak)
