2017 Domaine Serene, ‘Evenstad Reserve’ Pinot Noir, Willamette Valley, Oregon
The art of blending has been the hallmark of the Domaine Serene winemaking program and one of the most important steps in crafting wines of distinct and unique character for over 30 years. It is this artistry that has made ‘Evenstad Reserve’ our flagship wine and a benchmark for Oregon Pinot Noir since its first vintage.
An exquisite expression of our multi-faceted terroir, robust and perfectly balanced, the 2017 ‘Evenstad Reserve’ Pinot Noir offers a complete harmonious experience for the senses. A deep ruby hue resulting from a long, gentle extraction entices. The nose reveals bursting aromas of fresh blackberry and cherry compote. On the palate, the wine undulates with a velvety texture and composed tannins, with a crescendo of flavors from exotic spice, forest underbrush, freshly-cut mushrooms and dark fruit. Another truly exquisite offering to enjoy now, but also to cellar for graceful aging.
