2008 Domaine Serene Jerusalem Hill 13.8% $80

 

Almost sweet on the nose with subdued forest floor and raspberry notes, topped with some assertive, spicy oak. The spice is intense, but the wood aromas of vanilla and toast are rather modest. This is so well balanced on entry and then rounds out very nicely without gaining much weight on the palate. Nice, firm acid and sweet tannins underpin the core of smoky, soil touched red cherry and black raspberry fruit on the mid-palate. The oak begins to frame the fruit on the back end before taking a more assertive and equal footing on the long finish, which ends with notes of incense and black cherry. 93pts

    Wow it looks like you had fun tasting the >$50 Pinots. The lowest score was 90. I even think I can find some of these. If I do, your opinion will encourage me to invest the coin.
