2017 Domaine Serene, Winery Hill Vineyard Pinot Noir 750ml
Winery Hill is our highest-elevation Pinot Noir vineyard planted to 100% Dijon clones. Its 900 foot elevation makes this vineyard slow to ripen, allowing for full flavor development and highly complex fruit. The wine offers excellent aging potential, with balanced acidity, elegant tannins and a lingering finish.
The 2017 offering is silky and polished, with a fragrant nose of exuberant black cherries, rhubarb pie, orange zest, cedar forest and an array of holiday spices from anise to sage. The palate is soft, with mouthwatering minerality and juicy red fruit. The acidity builds to a crescendo, with fine tannins enveloping the tongue for a long, lingering finish.
