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.

Dark cherries and toasted spices make for a captivating nose with plenty of immediate interest. The deeply rich dark-cherries on the palate are cast along fluid, long and sturdy tannin lines. Strong finish. Drink or hold.

"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. — TF

"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)"
