Editorial Reviews for Domaine Serene Pinot Noir Willamette Valley Yamhill Cuvée
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
Gorgeously open nose of spice, herb and red fruit. In the mouth this is sleek and well-balanced with a lightly layered sweetness of wood and fruit. The wood spice pops on the back end along with black cherry pit fruit and mineral spice. Nice length with a touch of wood on the tapering finish. 89pts
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.
Took about 30-45 minutes to open up but really got going when it did. Cherry, cranberry and cinnamon. Notes of cola and earth complete the savory tastes. While I enjoyed this Pinot, for $32 I would recommend others ahead of it.
Very approachable with big fruit both on the nose and in the mouth. A cherry bomb. Much more fruit oriented that its Burgundian cousins - not as much earth and mineral. Perhaps a bit young right now but not at all disappointing. I give it high marks for being such a good wine at a price much more reasonable that a comparable burgundy.
smooth, sweet, light berry, no bite
One of my favorite Pinot Noirs!
Balanced nose featuring chocolate covered raspberries with a whisper of honeysuckle blossom. Light body, with medium acidity and light tannins. The medium-long finish seems to warm with cedar. Very pleasant!
First had this in Vegas and payed way tooo much for it. But loved it!

The Serene 2009 Pinot Noir Yamhill Cuvandeacute;e 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 vintageandrsquo;s weak sides and ought to drink well for another several years.
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.

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.
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.
Shiny, translucent ruby red. Very fragrant, this offers ample black raspberry and spice on the nose with a touch of citrus, while the palate features loads of dark red fruits and a taut structure.

WS 91pts , WA 91pts - Winemaker Notes - Cool weather in September delayed ripening, and the threat of rain was ever present as it had been in 2007. But unlike the previous vintage, when rain challenged the harvest late, the sun came out in October, the clouds dispersed and a late season warming trend hit the Dundee Hills. With no rain, we were able to harvest at an even pace with controlled ripening and perfect hang times. The 2008 wines are reminiscent of the wonderful 2000 vintage; great purity of fruit and structure. Critics and fans alike agree that these wines may someday be counted as some of the best made in Oregon.
