There's some obvious oak on the nose here along with a creamy base note upon which aromas of green apples, tart citrus and earthy nutty tones are layered. This is fabulous int he mouth with a great burst of ripe yet fresh fruit framed out with a bit of toasty and buttery oak but the wine remains bright, tense and light on its feet in the mouth. The wood treatment is well balanced for the fresh fruit with the tartness and slight hardness of the wine well balanced by the softening effects of the wood. Should improve over the short term at least but shows a fine synthesis of old world technique with new world fruit. 93pts

Tight on the nose with almond shell top notes and slow to emerge raspberry, sour cherry and cranberry fruit topped with hints of candied orange. Very elegant if a touch tight on entry, this quickly shows a bit of nutty oak along with a focused core of small, sour red fruits framed with dried spice notes. The wood tannins arrive on the mid-palate to tighten things up and accentuate a bit of wood spice that flows onto the finish, which is almost peppery and long with wild red berry fruits. The oak is a bit prominent here both texturally and in terms of flavor, but the underlying wine should emerge intact after a year or two in the cellar. 91pts

Toasty hazelnut and fresh apple pie on the nose. Crisp and with some poached pear nuance. On the palate, it has a supple texture, spicy flavors and good depth and balance. Oak spice, créme bruleé and custard. Good acidity. Really nice wine. -93 points 4/7/12

An intense PN with jammy red fruit and hints on petrol on the nose and a tease of radish, figs and caramel culminating in an off dry, acidic finish.

The Serene 2009 Pinot Noir Yamhill Cuvée offers sweeter red berry flavors than does the corresponding 2010, with brown spice accents and nicely integrated tannic chew. Pure-fruited and with ample finishing juiciness, this betrays none of its vintage’s weak sides and ought to drink well for another several years.

Firm in texture, featuring mildly chewy tannins around the butterscotch-accented blackberry flavors. Finishes with refinement. Best from 2013 through 2017. Tasted twice, with consistent notes.

Sometimes in a challenging vintage such as 2009, it is the least expensive, blended wines that benefit most, perhaps because grapes normally destined for the single-vineyard wines are redirected. Here, rich fruit flavors highlighted with streaks of caramel and toffee get things rolling quickly. Berries and cherries, firm acids, pretty spice and a lingering butterscotch finish.

Floral aromas of cherry blossom and strawberry, with a touch of spring earth. Jammy crushed cherry, plum, and white pepper on the palate, with accents of saddle leather. Long, intense finish, with earth and rose pedal notes.

Winemaker's Notes:

Medium ruby in color with an expressive nose of spicy red fruits and considerable terroir character. On the palate the fruit leans to the dark side of the spectrum with intense black cherry and black raspberry flavors as well as excellent grip, balance, and length.

Tasting Notes:

The pleasantly floral nose bursts with ripe raspberry, red cherry, lavender, plum, cedar and cola. The palate displays very pretty red cherry, black raspberry, pomegranate, oak spice, vanilla, and earth with very supple tannins and exceptional balance.
