Domaine Serene Evenstad Reserve Willamette Valley Pinot Noir 2008

Rereleased from the winery. The nose clearly shows significant development, and aromas of ripe, maturing red berries and darker loam notes waft from the glass. On the palate, the smoky, dark red fruit has largely integrated with the structural elements to result in wine with a silky and supple texture, but that still has notable density and concentration. When first opened, the finish shows a bitter baker’s chocolate note, but that resolves with air. That said, the wine overall would not suffer from another 2-5 years in the cellar. It’s a rare treat that should be decanted at this stage.

This wine after 9 years is still big in Body and great in taste. Nice pepper, spice, minerals all while presenting a great lush fruit presence. I loved this Pinot! Paired with spaghetti!

Not worth the price. Alas. Decent Willamette Pinot but there are lots of less expensive wines that are its equal or better.

I usually write off this producer, but this was lovely pinot.

Too ripe for what I normally like from Pinot and Oregon.

In Magnum...Overrated. Not my bag.... Where's the earth? Where's the Oregon in this bottle?

Vanilla bean, bay leaf, orange rind. Velvet red fruit. Good balance. More subtleties to appear after a few more years.

Sitting in the cellar for 4 years. Domaine Serene 2008 Evenstad Reserve. Ripe red raspberry and strawberry with hints of mocha and spices on the finish. Hints of earthiness.
