I like this a lot more than the 2016. Intense and powerful, yet still light bodied and evenly balanced. Bright cherries, forest floor, a touch of blueberries. Smells like after an April rain.

Delicate, pure and nicely layered. Bright cherry with strawberry accents. Touch of class.

Yamhill Cuvée is named for the county where the Domaine Serene Estates are located. Aged for 14 mos in French oak (43% new), this blend has grapes from Dundee Hills, Eola-Amity Hills, & Yamhill-Carlton AVA's. Ruby, rich fruit aromas of red berries and floral spices, known as “little sister” of the Evenstad Reserve. The palate shows cherry and strawberry with cacso, oak & cola. The wine is well balanced, long finish, smooth tannins, residual fruit with mineral tones. Nice!

Red cherry, damp earth, spice, crazy floral aromas, and dried herbs. M+ acid, m body, m- tannin. Oak is prevalent on the palate.

The nose is of good red fruit. I get strawberries, red raspberries, maraschino cherries, mild mushroom, and foggy forest floor. The palate has the red fruit in abundance, strawberries, tart cherries, good acidity, mild tannin and beautiful round mouth feel. Just my type of Pinot Noir.
