Winemaker Notes

An exquisite expression of Domaine Serene's multi-faceted terroir, the 2017 Evenstad Reserve Pinot Noir is robust and perfectly balanced, offering a complete harmonious experience for the senses. A deep ruby hue resulting from a long, gentle extraction entices. The nose reveals bursting aromas of fresh blackberry and cherry compote. On the palate, the wine undulates with a velvetly texture and composed tannins, with a crescendo of flavors from exotic spice, forest underbrush, freshly-cut mushrooms and dark fruit. Another truly stunning offering to enjoy now, but also to cellar for graceful aging.

Critical Acclaim

James Suckling
So much spice is the first impression here, this blended expression is well established as a powerful and complex style of pinot. Fresh red-cherry, potpourri, orange-peel, dried-flower, pomegranate and red and dark-cherry aromas, to name a few. The palate has such concentrated and layered style with dense red-cherry, blueberry and black-cherry flavors, delivered in a seamless build that holds so long. Impressive quality here. Drink or hold.

A generous and poised Pinot Noir with lovely floral aromatics, subtle raspberry and wet earth notes, and finely expressed red fruits.

Wine Spectator

Precise and sleekly structured, with expressive cherry, savory spice and orange zest aromas that take on flesh and elegant tannins on the lingering finish. Drink now through 2027.

The 2017 Pinot Noir Evenstad Reserve has a medium ruby-purple color and dark, broody fruits on the nose, laced with classy notes of cardamom, tea leaves and chocolate. The palate is silky, seamlessly fresh and surprisingly layered, suggesting it will improve with some more time in the cellar. Rating: 93+

Aromatically intriguing, this opens with an exotic mix of Asian spices. It's a lightly chocolatey, textured wine, with tart, firm blackberry fruit. Tannins are chewy and bring up more dark flavors of chocolate, licorice and black tea.
