Our NEW 92!

VOL 10, ISSUE 22

TREOS Wine, Monmouth, OR
Partner, winemaker and winegrower Dave Jepson only produced a limited amount of wine in the cold, rainy 2011 vintage. The 2011 Pinot Noirs were initially out of sorts and needed time to develop so they are just being released now. The wines are not as robust and full-flavored as usual for TREOS, but they are quite bold for the 2011 vintage and I find them very appealing. The remainder of the 2011 Pinot Noir grapes were distilled to use in making a Pinot Noir based, port-styled wine called Ternion ($39). Interestingly, the Ternion has been infused with dry roasted Oregon hazelnuts.


13.4% alc., $48. Dijon Clones. · Moderate reddish purple color in the glass. Fragrant upon opening with aromas of black cherry, sous-bois and complimentary oak. The succulent purple and black fruits fill the mouth with goodness and are quite sappy for this vintage. Very juicy, with harmonious tannins, a welcome touch of toasty oak, and a satisfying finish. Score: 90
13.4% alc., $48. Estate grown. A blend of three Dijon clones. · Moderate reddish purple color in the glass. Dark orchard and berry fruit aromas fill the glass. Classy and polished, with a load of delicious purple and black fruits complimented by deft barrel work and enough refined tannins and acidity to age nicely. Like the Elegant Reserve bottling, the fruit concentration is unusually grand for this vintage. Score: 92

NIce Review from Wine Spectator on Founders Choice 2012!

This is what Wine Spectator said about our 2012 Founders Choice...

They rated it as a Very Good wine with special qualities. (Yeah!)

"Treos Pinot Noir Willamette Valley -- Founders Choice 2012

-- Dense, dark and expressive, with an open feel to the rich black cherry, blackberry and licorice flavors, settling into a supple finish. Drink now through 2020."

Treos 2013 Pinot Gris, Willamette Valley, $20

By Great Northwest Wine on September 8, 2015

 This trio of wine-loving couples began planting their 20-acre parcel near Monmouth, Ore., in 2007 and established their block of clone 152 Pinot Gris two years later. Lead winemaker Dave Jepson orchestrated the crop load for their first commercial bottling of Pinot Gris to come in at 1.5 tons per acre, yet it still shows abundant crispness. Aromas of fresh-cut Granny Smith, gooseberry, lime peel, alyssum and ScotchTape lead to a refreshing delivery of more Granny Smith and gooseberry. Ripe apricot and lemongrass appear in the finish.

Rating: Excellent
Production: 230 cases
Alcohol: 12.4%

Treos partner/winemaker Dave Jepson inducted into the Confrerie des Chevaliers du Tastevin

We are excited to announce Treos partner/winemaker Dave Jepson has been inducted into the Confrerie des Chevaliers du Tastevin -- an organization of avid Burgundy wine lovers. Dave has been a collector and enthusiast of Burgundy wines for many years, and this induction marks the attainment of one of his major "life goals" (as was also being part of establishing TREOS wines).

Originally founded in 1703, and revived under its current name in 1934, the Confrérie des Chevaliers du Tastevin (Fraternity of Knights of the Wine-Tasting Cup) is an exclusive club of Burgundy wine enthusiasts. It is headquartered at the twelfth-century Château of Clos de Vougeot in Burgundy, but maintains chapters worldwide. Along with just a small handful of other Oregon wine producers, Dave is now a member of the Oregon chapter of the Confrerie.

The Confrerie currently has some 12,000 Chevaliers worldwide including wine producers, noted restaurateurs, business executives, heads of state, politicians/diplomats, and noted celebrities including scholars, athletes, musicians, and artists. The Confrerie's primary intentions are to hold in high regard and promote Burgundian wines and cuisine, to maintain the traditional Burgundian festivals, folklore and customs, and, to encourage people from all over the world to visit Burgundy.

Please join us in congratulating Dave on becoming a Chevalier du Tastevin member.

Wine Enthusiast gives 91 points to TREOS Albarino

Treos 2014 Albariño (Willamette Valley)

Treos 2014 Albariño (Willamette Valley)

Editors' Choice

Expert Reviews

Albariño is rare enough in Oregon, but virtually unknown in the Willamette Valley. This estate-grown wine, from a vineyard in the valley’s southwest corner, makes a solid case for more. Tart and tangy with brightly defined flavors of grapefruit, apple and pineapple, this is deliciously bracing. There’s nothing simple about it; the flavors extend and expand through a wonderfully long finish.

Memorial Day Happenings!

TREOS will Host a Weekend Tasting from 1 pm - 6 pm May 23rd - May 25th

(10705 Airlie Rd, Monmouth OR 97361)

Come on by and sample some of our new wines and treat yourself to your award winning favorites!!

   ALBARINO 2014

Our 2014 ALBARINO is in the bottles and tasting FABULOUS!! Last year we didn't have enough to go around but after the great harvest of 2014...there will be more this time!
You will find this famous white wine, originally from the northwest of Spain, gives flavors that are bold with a crisp minerality. Notes of melon, green apple and citrus combine to create a full bodied wine that will enhance pairings with seafood, cheese, or possibly even a great Thai dish. 
Our wine makers went to great lengths to study this wine's natural home in Spain.  They researched longitude, altitude and climate before we planted our first Albarino vines in 2010. We thought it would work well...and it has!  It's crisp like you would expect of a great Spanish Albarino with plenty of body to keep it interesting and lasting on the palate. 

Our newest wine to be released: 
      PINOT GRIS 2013

Our 2013 PINOT GRIS saturates the senses with ruby grapefruit blossom and light melon aromas, followed by flavors of lemon meringue, honeydew melon and with hints of just ripe braeburn apples that linger throughout a long, satisfying finish.
This is already a favorite for "on the deck" sipping for summer parties and events. You'll be amazed how easily this one pairs with food or is just enjoyable to drink by itself!

TREOS Ternion Port-style Dessert Wine wins accolades!

Treos NV Ternion Hazelnut Infused Dessert Wine, Oregon, $39

By on January 7, 2015

Here’s the latest in the growing lineup Dave Jepson’s of delectable wines from Monmouth, Ore. — an unusual Port-style that starts with two barrels of Pinot Noir from the acclaimed 2012 vintage, which are then infused with locally grown and roasted filberts. Aromas of poached black cherry and grilled strawberry lead to luscious flavors of black cherry and strawberry. There’s just a hint of nuttiness in the sweet finish, and the structure is beautiful with sandy tannins and integrated alcohol.

Rating: Excellent
Production: 72 cases
Alcohol: 18%

TREOS Dry Muscat named one of the best 100 in 2014!

Great Northwest Wine top 100 wines of 2014: 

64. Treos Wines 2013 Dry Muscat, Willamette Valley, $21

Treos Wines Dry Muscat labelMonmouth, Ore., winemaker Dave Jepson has a passion and a knack with producing Muscat in a dry style, and for a second straight vintage he’s merited our top rating with it. While he continues to use Muscat Ottonel, he changed up the blend just a bit from last year by substituting Muscat Blanc for the historic Muscat of Alexandria. The resulting wine remains just as fanciful with classic Muscat aromas of rosewater, lychee, ripe pineapple and white flowers. The drink is clean, bright, dry and lovely with tropical fruit flavors and rosewater. There’s complexity on the midpalate with a slight sheen of lanolin before the cleansing arrival of acidity and a finish of orange oil. Fortunately, he’s increased production by about 50 percent, and while he packages it in a 375-millilter bottle, don’t confuse this for a late-harvest or sticky dessert wine.
Production: 90 cases
Alcohol: 13%
