Press and Tasting Notes

JAMES SUCKLING

93 / 100

"A broader mouthfeel to this wine for a 2013. Medium to full body and round and velvety tannins. Lots of dried fruit and mushroom character. Drink or hold."

THE REVIEW

This is the must see Pinot of the season. That's because our best selling Oregon Pinot is the little sister of the 2010 Domaine Serene Evenstad Reserve, this year's #3 Wine Spectator Top 100.
    Here's a little secret: eight Domaine Serene vineyards make up the "Yamhill Cuvee" bottling. What most people don't know is that 5 of the 8 vineyards in the Yamhill Cuvee come from Evenstad vineyard fruit. Which means, over 60% of the Yamhill bottling was sourced from Top 100 fruit. Fruit that, by the way, comes from the outstanding 2010 harvest in Oregon.
    Cherry plays the leading role is this cast of lush, red fruit. Mouthwatering notes of red raspberry, ripe cherry, lavender, and plum are followed by vanilla, spice, tobacco, slight orange peel, cola and exceptional balance.
    If you can find any of the #3 wine, it would sell for $65 per bottle. At $39 and change, this "nearly" Top 100 wine will pair perfectly with your Thanksgiving feast. Throughout the year, you can also pair it with roasted chicken or lamb. You can also pair this delicious red with cedar plank grilled salmon that has been marinated in chopped basil, red onions, garlic, a touch of salt, pepper and orange zest. Oh yeah, add a little wild mushroom risotto as a side, you won't be disappointed.Read More »
