As our house cuvee, Thea’s Selection is a blend from our seven 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 blueberry 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 black cherries and dark chocolate lingering on the palate.
