"Cherries, watermelon, stewed strawberries, mocha and nutmeg on the nose. Its medium-bodied with powdery tannins and spicy, cedary character. Polished. Drink now or hold."
As the house cuvee, Theas Selection is a blend of fruit sourced from all seven of their organic, estate vineyards that span three different Willamette Valley AVAs. As such, it is a wonderful representation of the vintage across all of their 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.
