Domaine Serene Evenstad Reserve Pinot Noir 2016
|Region||United States, Oregon, Willamette Valley|
Brilliant ruby-red. A hugely perfumed bouquet evokes red and blue fruit preserves, potpourri, vanilla and exotic spices, along with a smoky mineral topnote. Deeply concentrated raspberry, boysenberry, spicecake and floral pastille flavors show outstanding clarity, and a core of juicy acidity lends spine and back-end lift. Conveys a suave blend of power and vivacity on the strikingly long, spice- and floral-driven finish, which leaves cola and sappy red and blue fruit notes behing 65% new oak.
Refined and stately in style, offering elegantly complex raspberry and cherry flavors, with orange peel and clove notes, gaining structure toward polished tannins. Drink now through 2026.
Along with the Yamhill Cuvée, this reserve is the only Pinot that is blended from a mix of the winery's vineyards. It's richly fruity, with a broad streak of toasted hazelnuts. The core fruit flavors are raspberry and cherry, with a spicy lift. The wine is perfectly balanced through a long, satisfying finish.
