Winemaker Notes

By combining grapes from a variety of appellations we created a wine with complex layers. We selected premium vineyard sites throughout the Willamette Valley, including Willakia (Eola-Amity Hills), Nuestro Sueño (Eola-Amity Hills), Zena Crown (Eola-Amity Hills), Kalita (Yamhill-Carlton District), and Monk's Gate (Yamhill-Carlton District). All of the vineyard sites embrace viticultural practices that reduce or eliminate the use of pesticides which can have a negative impact on the soil's health. The vineyard sites were closely monitored to ensure the maximum quality of fruit. Harvest decisions were made based on fruit flavors and sugars.

The 2009 Grande Cuvée is abundant with aromas of cranberry and raspberry, complimented by notes of mocha, nutmeg and cinnamon stick with hints of licorice and cola. The palate is complex and intriguing without being overwhelming. It is round and fleshy; expressing more red fruit and introducing highlights of dark plum and black cherry with vanilla and spice undertones in the elegant and lengthy finish.

Critical Acclaim

WE 90
Wine Enthusiast
Tart and tight, with primary raspberry and cranberry fruit, dotted with licorice, cola and cinnamon notes. Despite its youth, it shows appealing complexity, leading into a full and satisfying finish with drying tannins. Give it a couple more years of bottle age and you will have a reall winner on your hands.

Solena Estate, Oregon

After successful careers in the Oregon wine industry, the husband and wife team of Laurent Montalieu and Danielle Andrus Montalieu purchased an 80-acre estate to commemorate their marriage in 2000. In May 2002, they launched Soléna by bottling their first vintage of Domaine Danielle Laurent Pinot Noir and, shortly thereafter, opening a tasting room in Carlton. 

Soléna Estate began as a way to explore winemaking with other varietals grown in neighboring appellations while the family's young Domaine Danielle Laurent vineyard in the Yamhill-Carlton District matured. In May 2007, Danielle and Laurent added the spectacular 100-acre Hyland Vineyard in the McMinnville AVA to their estate vineyard holdings. Today, Laurent and Danielle are producing Pinot Noir from their estate vineyards as well as Pinot Gris, Merlot, Zinfandel, Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah, and Late Harvest Riesling from select sites throughout Oregon and Washington.

Home of some of the planet’s most amazingly elegant and expressive Pinot noir, the Willamette Valley is a pastoral, mixed landscape of green, bucolic rolling hills, dramatic forestlands and small, independent, friendly wine growers. As a leader in environmental stewardship, the valley has some of the nation’s most protective land use policies, with two-thirds of its vineyards farmed sustainably and over half, organically. While the valley claims a cool, continental climate, and is heavily influenced by the cold, moist winds of the Pacific Ocean, its warm and dry summers allow for the steady, even ripening of Pinot noir.

The potential of Willamette Valley Pinot noir continues to attract the investment of serious growers and winemakers both locally and from abroad, as naturally the finished wines bring accolades from professionals and enthusiasts. With a range of styles from delicate dried cherry, raspberry and hibiscus to stronger notes of truffle, mocha, plum and spice, a fine Willamette Valley Pinot noir is a perfect expression of both character and grace.
