2016 Domaine Serene, ‘Grand Cheval’ Oregon Red Wine, Walla Walla Valley & Dundee Hills, Oregon
To make Grand Cheval we take the best characteristics of two very different varietals, Syrah from the Walla Walla Valley, and our own Pinot Noir grapes from the Dundee Hills, and blend them in perfect harmony to create our own version of the ideal “steak-house wine.” This wine is substantial enough for the richest of dishes, yet soft enough to please any palate
The 2016 vintage combines the rich aromatics of German chocolate cake and cherry cordial with notes of savory black pepper, spice cake and bay leaf. The mouthfeel is both plush and structured, ensuring that this elegant and balanced wine will age gracefully over time.
