Domaine Serene Pinot Noir Evenstad Reserve 2018, 750ml, Willamette Valley, Oregon

The art of blending has been the hallmark of the Domaine Serene winemaking program and one of the most important steps in making wines of distinct and unique character for the past 30 years. It is this artistry that has made Evenstad Reserve the flagship wine and a benchmark for Oregon Pinot Noir since its first vintage. This special release marks three decades of focus on high-quality wines from the Northern Willamette Valley – one of the finest places in the world to grow and produce Pinot Noir. Tasting Notes: An exquisite expression of our multi-faceted terroir, the 2017 ‘Evenstad Reserve’ Pinot Noir is robust and perfectly balanced, offering a complete harmonious experience for the senses. A deep ruby hue resulting from a long, gentle extraction entices. The nose reveals bursting aromas of fresh blackberry and cherry compote. On the palate, the wine undulates with a velvetly texture and composed tannins, with a crescendo of flavors from exotic spice, forest underbrush, freshly-cut mushrooms and dark fruit. Another truly stunning offering to enjoy now, but also to cellar for graceful aging.
100% Pinot Noir, Aged 16 months in 100% French oak.
