The nose here is marred by VA and beyond that is a complex yet unappealing array of old, stale aromas. Broad, full and simple on the palate with huge dark cherry fruit presented in a clumsy, ungainly package. Defective bottle I hope.

Standard Oregon pinot. Definitely benefits from a long decant for the tart tannins to cool off. Pretty closed overall will probably get better with age. Went fine with my rare lamb chops.

I know a woman who can’t drink red wine due to an allergy, and she is very happy to simply take in the aroma of this wine. Once sipped, your mouth is endlessly entertained by various flavors, like waves arriving on a beach: a hint of cedar, some raspberry, cranberry, and strawberry, oak, fresh spices, and pure pinot magic. You can enjoy any food with this wine, in my totally biased opinion, even a big, fat steak. That’s because for all its delicacy and complexity, this is a fairly big, medium-bodied wine.

A decidedly intense vanilla and cola nose along with black fruit on the palate. Smooth upon entry and finishes a touch hot. Spice and black fruit and vanilla on the finish as well. Usually I wouldn't go for this style of wine, but I was into it the night I tasted it. Palates DO change, but perhaps I was just craving something sweet.

Big juicy and delicious. Bits of vanilla cola and spices. Not subtle at all and maybe not exactly my style but unarguably delicious

Firm in texture. Aromatic, with dark plum and gentle spice notes, and generous with its pure blackberry and currant flavors, persisting enticingly on the fine-grained finish. Drink now through 2014.

Lithe in texture, with a distinctive range of red cherry, black cherry, cinnamon and mocha flavors that ride smoothly over a graceful frame, lingering nicely on the clear, expressive finish. Drink now through 2015.

Sereneandrsquo;s flagship reserve is forward and ripe, the red berry and woodsy scents marked by oak. Yet the wine retains a pleasing lift, the black cherry flavors brightening with air and the acidity fresh and clean. A fine pairing with risotto con funghi.

Smooth and round, with a lovely polished feel to the dark berry, cherry, licorice and spice flavors, flowing easily over finely tuned tannins, persisting expressively. Drink now through 2016. 9,000 cases made. -HS The 2006 Evenstad Reserve is a blend of over 70 lots. Medium ruby-colored, it offers notes of cedar, cinnamon, clove, cassis, and raspberry. This is followed by a medium- to full-bodied wine with layers of complex red fruits, enough structure to evolve for 3-4 years, excellent integration of oak, tannin, and acidity, and a lengthy finish. Drink it from 2010 to 2018. ** Only 14 in Stock **

This is followed by a medium- to full-bodied wine with layers of complex red fruits, enough structure to evolve for 3andndash;4 years, excellent integration of oak, tannin, and acidity, and a lengthy finish. Drink it from 2010 to 2018. Domaine Serene has turned out its most successful set of Pinot Noirs in several vintages.

As with most of Oregonandrsquo;s 2006 Pinots, this shows more grip and fullness than the wineryandrsquo;s andrsquo;07. Thereandrsquo;s a strong smoky character, presumably from barrel toast, and a thick and chewy midpalate of mixed berries and tart cherry fruit. The acids stick out a bit, but the dominant flavor is cherry, with a spicy herbal edge.
