2018 Domaine Serene, Mark Bradford Vineyard Pinot Noir, Dundee Hills, Oregon
Notably one of Grace Evenstad's favorite wines produced by Domaine Serene, the 2018 Mark Bradford Pinot Noir is a remarkable expression of the Pommard and Wadenswil clones planted to the 11 acres of west-facing Jory soil. Once thought impossible in the early days of Oregon Pinot Noir to plant on the west facing slopes of the Dundee Hills, the Mark Bradford Vineyard is now thought of as one of the finest vineyards in the world, producing a complex and concentrated wine with structure and superb ageability.
This highly-sought, limited production wine is exclusively available to Gold Eagle Members. With notes of dark plum compote, cherry tobacco, and a hint of coffee, the well integrated tannins and open middle palate produce a wine that will be highly sought after in years to come.
