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

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.

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.

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.


Winemaker's Notes:

Highly perfumed nose displaying loads of red cherry, raspberry, dried blueberry, slight citrus, and cola. The palate is ripe and ample, showing red plum, black raspberry, caramel, clove, vanilla and violet with supple and well-balanced finish.

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.
