2018 Domine Serene Evenstad Reserve Pinot Noir
With over 150 acres planted to vine, owners Ken and Grace Evenstad of Domaine Serene are passionate owners involved in all aspects of their winery. Since 1990, Evenstad Reserve has been their flagship wine. An artful blend of multiple Dijon clones from multiple vineyards, it’s a winner of numerous accolades and awards. The 2018 is dark and brooding. A dark ruby red, it slowly reveals aromas and flavors of dark cherry, dusty mocha, and baking spices. Dense and savory with delicate acidity Be patient and lay this wine down a couple of years to release its multi-faceted charms. More generous when revisited the next day.
