Deep, bright red in color with a vibrant and fruity nose. Cheery aromas of black cherry, plum and blackberry compote entice the nose while the soft mouthfeel gives way to flavors of dark fruit with elements of bramble, leather and licorice.

Wine AdvocateThe 2014 Pinot Noir Grande Cuvee comes from the Willamette and McMinnville AVAs and was picked between 13 September and 23 October. Matured for eight months in barrel, it has a blackberry and bilberry scented bouquet, juicy and almost pastille-like, though nicely defined and I could see this having commercial appeal. The palate is medium-bodied with a little coarseness on the entry. Moderate weight in the mouth with firm tannin, I appreciate the underbrush element towards the finish that lends it some tension. Not the best Pinot Noir...but this is well priced.

Wine EnthusiastThis is the first release of the new vintage from Soléna. Primary fruit flavors of strawberry and raspberry seem a bit disjointed, and there is a hole in the midpalate. A suggestion of rubber tire sets in as the wine finishes. More bottle age is in order.

Wine SpectatorCrisp with acidity and firm with tannins around a lean core of raspberry and orange peel flavor, lingering on the taut finish. Best after 2016. 4,210 cases made.
