Cabernet/Merlot "Serene" 2004

Winemaker's Notes:

Powerful nose of smoky black cherry, boysenberry, beet root, clove menthol and rosemary. The lithe palate displays black cherry, anise, slight hints of smoked meat and sage on the long, structured finish.

In 1999, Domaine Serene was named by Robert Parker as one of two great producers of Pinot Noir in Oregon. Since being founded in 1989 with just 42 acres, the winery has quickly expanded, with a current total of 462 acres of land in Yamhill County. Of the 150 acres under vine, 95% of the grapes are planted to Pinot Noir, and the remaining land is planted to Chardonnay. In 2011, Erik Kramer took up the reins as winemaker to ensure that their legacy of extremely well-received wines lasts for years to come. Read less

This single vineyard Chardonnay is proof that Oregon Chardonnays can hold their own and age extremely well. With up front beautiful aromas of fall spices, lemon cake and caramel, tropical fruit flavors with a lush mouthfeel and long toasty finish = extremely palatable and ambrosial.

Spent a weekend in the Dundee Hills area and this was by far one of my favorite wines. This one will be a constant in my collection.

Excellent Pinot Noir, richness that can match a duck and special meals.

Cote Sud is one of seven vineyards of Domaine Serene�s Evenstad Estate located atop the southernmost of the Dundee Hills. It was planted in 1992 to Dijon clones and is fermented in Burgundian barrels. Rich, creamy, toasty and a vibrant texture, this affordable gem might remind you of a top Meursault animated by American extroversion!

Our best selling Pinot Noir for the 4th year in a row! Domaine Serene, led by owners Ken and Grace Evanstad and winemaker Tony Rynders, consistently turn out absolutely stunning wine that is very reflective of the Oregon style. Beautiful aromas of dark cherry, red raspberry, pipe tobacco, milk chocolate, pomegranate and earth. The palate is rich and supple, showing black raspberry, cherry pie, black currant, rose, violet and oak spice with a persistent and seamless finish.

Domaine Serene Cote Sud Oregon The nose displays complex aromatics reminiscent of ripe citrus, quince, lemon custard, toast, clove, and anise. The palate shows vibrant green apple, honeydew melon, key lime, and mineral with a touch of marzipan and cedar on the lengthy finish.
