Get it before the ratings come out. 93 Points James Suckling: "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." 92 Points Wine Spectator: "Dynamic and well-knit, with vibrant black raspberry, spiced tea and violet accents that gather richness toward medium-grained tannins. Drink now through 2027." Thea's Selection is the measuring stick of our success as growers and winemakers. A blend of blocks from each of our vineyards, Thea's expresses the vintage, our intentions and our efforts perhaps more than any other. The earthy nose shows fruit cake, black cherry and buttered rye bread, while expressing fennel and spice in a lovely, delicate way. The wine's medioum body centers around cranberry, black cherry and resonant spice that leads to a long, savory finish. We are pleased with the textural silk and finesse of this wine.

Bright ruby-red. Fresh red and dark berries, cherry, candied flowers and a hint of spiciness on the perfumed nose. Juicy and seamless in the mouth, offering bitter cherry, raspberry and spicecake flavors that unfurl steadily and become sweeter on the back half. Finishes on a juicy berry note, displaying well-knit tannins and lingering spice and floral notes. 30% new oak. (Josh Raynolds, Vinous, August 2020)

Cherries, a little licorice. Fine sipping on it's own, or a full-on versatile dinner wine. Duck breast and roasted fennel went well. Enough tannins to give it body, but not so much to overpower.

Pinot from the Willamette Valley delivers again. Mild and dry with low tannins. A little fruit forward. Great value for $20.
