Domaine Serene, ‘Yamhill Cuvée’ Pinot Noir 2018

92 – points Wine Enthusiast

This is an exceptionally aromatic year for this wine, which jumps from the glass with spicy raspberry and cherry fruit. In the mouth it’s sharp and a bit peppery, with some bite to the tannins. Aerate it if drinking over the next couple of years, or give it a bit of cellar time to smooth it out further. PAUL GREGUTT

 

The ‘Yamhill Cuvée’ is an ultra-premium Willamette Valley Pinot Noir with consistency vintage to vintage due to the blending of Pinot Noir from each of our main vineyard estates. Named for the county where all of the Domaine Serene estates are found, the inaugural vintage of this blend includes the designation of the Yamhill-Carlton AVA and grapes from the Dundee Hills and Eola-Amity AVAs.

The 2018 ‘Yamhill Cuvée’ is already full of life and sophistication. Introduced by a bouquet of dried rose petals, brandied cherries and pomegranate seeds on the nose, a veil of dried lavender, freshly picked rosemary and French vanilla burst onto the palate. Bright acids, wood tannins and refined structure lead to a harmonious, lingering finish.
