2015 Domaine Serene, ‘Evenstad Reserve’ Pinot Noir, Willamette Valley, Oregon
The Evenstad Reserve Pinot Noir is our flagship wine, for good reason, as it is the defining standard by which all of our Pinot Noirs are measured. We hand select our best barrels each year to create a reserve wine that is consistent in both its superior quality and flavor profile.
Never shy in the glass, the 2015 Evenstad Reserve radiates a blissful bouquet of boysenberry, marionberry, dark chocolate, and sage. In the mouth, its graceful texture enters with power and seduces every part of your palate - exposing wave upon wave of alluring flavors of dark fruits, mushroom, and cola. Its silky-smooth, velvet-like tannins, give way to a long, weighted finish that endures with unrivaled finesse and persistence. This is truly a compelling wine that illustrates two and a half decades of winemaking mastery in one of the finest places in the world to grow and produce Pinot Noir.
