Domaine Serene Evenstad Reserve Willamette Valley Pinot Noir 2015

$74.99

95 Points!                                           One of Oregon's most coveted producers of Pinot Noir in the Willamette Valley's rare Reserve Pinot Noir. 94 Points Wine Spectator: "Polished and gracefully complex, with refined raspberry and strawberry flavors accented by toasty cinnamon and river stone notes, finishing with lithe tannins. Drink now through 2025." Wine Enthusiast:  "Dark, full, generous and ripe to the far edge of elegance, this powerful Pinot is saturated with black fruits, annoted with fennel, pepper, smoke and espresso, the rich and varied flavors rolling right through a lush midpalate and on into a gently fading finish.  Retasted over 24-48 hours, it continued to evolve and develop additional nuances.  A wine that can develop like a fine Burgundy to cellar for a decade or more."

Shimmering ruby. Expansive aromas of fresh dark berries, cherry cola, potpourri and exotic spices; vanilla and espresso notes emerge as the wine opens up. Sweet, fleshy and seamless in texture, offering palate-staining black raspberry, cherry liqueur, vanilla and spicecake flavors and a sexy violet pastille nuance. Velvety tannins build slowly on the finish, which hangs on with impressive, floral- and spice-dominated persistence. (60% new French oak) (Josh Raynolds, Vinous, June 2019)

Dark berries, vanilla, cola, and hints of sage on the nose. Ripe dark fruit and supple tannins on the palate with pleasing persistence. Domaine Serene’s flagship Pinot Noir blend is a nice snapshot of the excellent 2015 vintage. 14.1% ABV. $75.

Dark garnet in color with long (@Bill Bender style) legs. Heavy tart cherry, anise and bramble aromas. Laser focused black fruit, leather, anise. So balanced with medium tannins. Baked fruit galette (pie crust) and milk chocolate on the finish. Great reminder to not forget about the baller Willamette pinots!
