2017 Domaine Serene, Two Barns Vineyard Pinot Noir 750ml
Two Barns Vineyard is situated on the west side of the Dundee Hills of Oregon. This low elevation vineyard is planted in sedimentary soils of the Willakenzie series, making Two Barns unique to the Dundee Hills AVA, typically known for its red Jory soils. This particular combination of soil and elevation produces dark fruited, brooding wines of intensity and power.
The wonderfully complex 2017 Two Barns Vineyard Pinot Noir expresses a knockout nose of baked strawberry rhubarb pie and fresh cherry blossom, with hints of baking spice. On the round and well-balanced palate, enticing fruitcake and red berry flavors are elevated by a lively minerality. The wine's silky-smooth texture is gently contoured by well-integrated tannins and offers a lingering and elegant finish.
