Domaine Serene, named after Ken and Grace Evenstad’s daughter, Serene, has been named one of Oregon’s best wineries on multiple occasions. 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 shows off some rich clay soil tones right off the bat, and then adds notes of soft, barrel aged wood tones to the soft core of dried peach and apple fruit. On entry it shows good acid, but also a rather soft, expansive gently toasty, nutty core of fruit. The mid-palate is slightly hollow with plenty of toasty wood tones supporting modest, vanilla tinged, green apple and pineapple fruits. The finish really shows great length with a nice layered feel and good, emerging complexity. At its core it’s a soft, subtle wine, with an edge of delicacy to it making it a good match for a simple herb and lemon scented roast chicken. 90pts

Toasted apples and oak. Butter, oak and cream on the finish, with a bit of spice and crisp apples. Mellow acidity that mixes well with the oak.

interesting little wine. i just tried rhubarb pie for the frst time last month and this hit me as tasting identical. Tart and acidic but really well made. Great pairing for shwarma. Decant for at least half an hour.

Lemons, moderate-to-low oak. Slightly bready finish. Not too shabby.

The wine has a nice deep, inky purple color at the center, leading to a bright ruby along the edges. The nose is at first a spicy sweetness, with black pepper and blueberries that ease into some hints of smoke, cocoa powder and a touch of lavender. The taste is wonderfully complex, with some spice and floral notes up front that transitions smoothly to blueberries and black plum midpalate. The tannins are somewhat rustic and smoky that suppose a silky finish that lingers on the palate. Very pleasant to sip at the end of a long day!

Graphite and charred wood on the nose. Aromas of ripe cherry, asian spice, lavender. Silky texture on the palate with flavors of black cherry, anise, cola, plum, cocoa and toast. Nice and not too heavy as some can be. Good balance, rich and smooth. 3/10/12

Rating: 86/100 - As reviewed by Connoisseurs' Guide to California Wine (www.cgcw.com) in the October 2010 issue. When allowed a few moments of air, this firm, comparatively tight wine rids itself of a bit of earthiness in the nose and displays a nice note of mineral-tinged red-cherry fruit in its place. Solid and structured and just a touch tough in the mouth, it is not now nor will it be a juicy and opulent wine, but it shows ample fruit and hints that, with age, elegance just might be in the works.Connoisseurs' Guide to California Wine aging recommendation: Drinkable now. Further bottle aging can improve this wine.

Rating: 87/100 - As reviewed by Connoisseurs' Guide to California Wine (www.cgcw.com) in the October 2010 issue. Framed in the firm, slightly stony style that is not untypical of Oregon Chardonnays, this fairly tight youngster is biased to mildly citrusy, green apple-fruit. Its lightly laid on oak lends a bare wisp of spice, and it combination of subtlety and structure directs it to mealtime service with shellfish and milder white-fleshed fish dishes.Connoisseurs' Guide to California Wine aging recommendation: Drinkable now. Further bottle aging can improve this wine.

The entry level 2006 Pinot Noir Yamhill Cuvee delivers an expressive nose of rose petal, red cherry and raspberry that leaps from the glass. This leads to a velvety-textured, medium-bodied Pinot with ample sweet fruit, good depth, and a fruit-filled finish. It lacks only complexity. Drink this pleasurable wine over the next 4-5 years.

Tasting Notes:

Bright and floral aromas of citrus flower, tangerine, jasmine, spearmint, flint, pear, spiced apple, lemon custard and vanilla. The luscious palate shows ripe apricot, green apple, kiwi, lemon-lime, mineral, toast and caramel with excellent structure and beautiful, well-balanced acidity.
