Domaine Serene Evenstad Reserve Pinot Noir 2019
|United States, Oregon, Willamette Valley
A brilliant ruby red color, the 2019 ‘Evenstad Reserve’ Pinot Noir expresses aromas of dark dried cherries, pink peppercorn, and saddle leather on the nose. On the palate, layers of composed tannins and savory characters of cherry wood, ground sage, and dried shiitake mushrooms reveal themselves, leading to an acidic finish that lingers with soft and silky tannins. This Pinot Noir is beautiful on release and will age gracefully in the cellar for years to come.
Medium ruby, the 2019 Pinot Noir Evenstad Reserve has pure, layered aromas of cranberry, pomegranate and raspberry with accents of tobacco leaves, graphite, mushroom and forest floor. The medium-bodied palate is harmoniously structured and seamless with delicate, perfumed fruit and a very long, spicy finish. This strikes a fine balance between a fruity, savory and earthy character.
A graceful, compelling red, offering an array of raspberry, strawberry, rose petal and toasty spice flavors that fan out on the lingering, supple finish. Drink now through 2030.
A "Goldilocks wine" where everything, down to the restrained alcohol, is just right. Blackcap raspberries, dried rose petals, beeswax and a touch of Madagascar vanilla draw the nose deeper into the glass. Bright red cherry and tangerine flavors create a juicy and pleasurable sweet-tart flavor combination.
The 2019 Pinot Noir Evenstad Reserve is forward and lifted with baking spice, clove, and cranberry. The palate is medium-bodied, with fine tannins, wonderful concentration, and notes of dried roses, pure cherry, and lingering oak spice. Drink 2023-2030.
A firm and linear wine with some herbal and bark character. Blue fruit and dried strawberry. Floral. Full and tight with firmness and intensity. Give it three to four years to come around.
