Winemaker's Notes:

Dark ruby colored with black rasberry and sweet pie cherry aromas. A beautiful medium bodied wine that opens up showing vibrant strawberry, dark raspberry and cassis intertwined with subtle vanilla and spices on the long finish.

The Yamhill CuveƩ is a blend of Pommard (85%), Wadenswil (10%) and Dijon (5%) clones of Pinot Noir sourced from Estate Vineyards in Yamhill County. The fruit came from the Red Hills (50%), Eola Hills (25%) and the Yamhill Foothills (5%).

My Notes:

About Domaine Serene:

Ken and Grace Evenstad founded Domaine Serene Vineyards and Winery in 1989 when they purchased 42 acres of just-logged land in the Dundee Hills of Oregon to plant, grow and produce ultra-premium Pinot Noir. They have been involved in every aspect of growing, producing and marketing Domaine Serene wines. Ken and Grace own 462 acres of land in Yamhill County in the Willamette Valley of Oregon, 150 acres of land is planted to vine. In addition to Pinot Noir, which is about 95% of the wine produced, they also make a little Chardonnay and Syrah. Their wines have won many accolades and awards, including over 80 wines scoring 90 points or higher by Wine Spectator.
