Winemaker's Notes:

The 2008 Grande Cuvée Pinot Noir delivers suave aromas of macerated cherries, blackcurrant, spices and cigar box. The flavors are fresh and juicy, showing ripe black cherries and cassis, framed by a long spicy aftertaste with a vibrant structure. Enjoy this complex yet easily approachable wine now or cellar for up to 7 years. Pairs well with Northwest-inspired cuisine, like salmon, duck or mushrooms.

About Solena Estate:

After successful careers in the Oregon wine industry, the husband and wife team of Laurent Montalieu and Danielle Andrus Montalieu has created an exciting new family operated winery, Soléna Cellars. Soléna is the combination of the Spanish and French words "Solana" and "Solene" celebrating the sun and the moon, and the name that Laurent and Danielle, gave to their daughter.

Soléna Cellars began as a way to explore winemaking with other varietals grown in neighboring appellations while the family's young Domaine Danielle Laurent vineyard matured. Today Laurent and Danielle are producing Pinot Noir from their exciting estate vineyard in Oregon's Yamhill-Carlton appellation as well as Pinot Gris, Merlot, Zinfandel, Cabernet Sauvignon and Syrah from select sites throughout Oregon and Washington.
