Winemaker Notes

A bright ruby color fills the glass. On the nose the Grand Cuvée displays youthful exuberance with lively aromas of tart cherries, strawberries, and cranberries. While flavors of licorice, cola and baking spices balance perfectly on the palate. A delightful lightness allows this wine to be the perfect accompaniment to any evening or celebration.

Critical Acclaim

All Vintages
JS 92
James Suckling

Spicy oak is cast across ripe red berries and cherries and delivers a modern impression. There’s a fresh-earth edge here, too, with attractive, spicy notes and a very vibrant feel to the tannins, which carry a grainy cut that holds freshness into the finish. Drink or hold.


WS 92
Wine Spectator

Sleekly structured and savory, with expressive raspberry, violet and smoky tea accents that pick up speed toward refined tannins. Drink now through 2028.

WE 90
Wine Enthusiast

Quite young and showing clean primary fruit flavors of tart red berries, this is backed with ample acidity, lending a pleasing citrusy snap to the mouthfeel. It finishes with a wash of minerality. Good now, but another year in the bottle wouldn't hurt a bit.

COMMENTARY: The 2018 Soléna Grande Cuvée Pinot Noir shows an excellent juxtaposition between fruit and earth. TASTING NOTES: This wine shines with its ripe berry and chalky aromas and flavors. Pair it with grilled, seasoned lamb chops. (Tasted: May 24, 2020, San Francisco, CA)

Solena Estate, Oregon
Solena Estate Laurent Montalieu and daughter, Soléna Winery Image

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.
