2018 Domaine Serene, ‘Aspect’ Pinot Noir, Dundee Hills, Oregon
Crowning the southernmost peak of the Dundee Hills, the magical Evenstad Estate is one of the most outstanding sites in the world for growing distinctive Pinot Noir. Dry-farmed on Jory soil at elevations ranging from 520 to 825 feet, its seven individual vineyard blocks have multiple exposures and produce some of our most prized wines, including Mark Bradford, Grace, and Côte Sud. We crafted this unique blend to exemplify the terroir synergy possible from diverse aspects of soil, elevation, orientation and clonal selection found within one remarkable vineyard estate.
The 2018 'Aspect' is powerful yet smooth, with strong and compelling aromatics. Structure and finesse are beautifully balanced with a deep fruit character and deep, juicy aromatics that its collectors have come to expect, and new discoverers of ‘Aspect’ will enjoy. It will age gracefully in the cellar for decades to come.
