2012 Domaine Serene, Yamhill Cuvee
$48 Offer Price: $42
Consistent from vintage to vintage as the “little sister” of the Evenstad Reserve Pinot Noir, the Yamhill Cuvee Pinot Noir is a blend from each of our vineyard sites that results in a vibrant, food friendly Pinot Noir. This wine has an aroma profile that consists of red fruit, minerality, sweet and complex spice, earth and a hint of French oak. The palate offers youthful tannins and balanced acidity which lead to a smooth and graceful finish. The Yamhill Cuvee is approachable in its youth while maintaining the elegance and finesse of a Domaine Serene Pinot Noir.
Gorgeous pinot with dried strawberry and spice character. Full body, soft tannins, and remains fresh and lively. Lovely combination of ripe fruit and acidity. Drink or hold. JS93
Wine Spectator – “Bright and lively, light and tangy, with raspberry and cranberry notes most prominent on the sleek, cleanly defined frame. Has presence and lingers well. ” Drink now through 2020. 7,700 cases made. WS91
This cuvée offers the pleasures of sweet, sappy red fruits, soft tannins and broad swaths of caramel, toasted hazelnuts and mocha. It coats the tongue with flavor and has a sort of insistence that the next sip will be even better. WE92
