Domaine Serene 2007 Evenstad Reserve Pinot Noir (Willamette Valley)

  • Cellar Selection
  1. $58
A very elegant and refined Evenstad Reserve, with grace notes of sandalwood and a lovely cherry core. The fruit is immaculate, the concentration focused and lengthy, and the flavors are so artfully blended that the wine is seamless and perfectly balanced. Although it is drinking like a mature wine, there is every reason to cellar wines such as this—it can develop…  — P.G.  (6/1/2011)

Domaine Serene 2009 Côte Sud Vineyard Chardonnay (Dundee Hills)

  • Editors' Choice
  1. $49
Immaculately clean and fresh, this enters the mouth with a pleasing lightness, displaying a mix of stone fruits and a streak of vanilla wafer running right through its core. It opens in the glass, adding muscle and depth, ultimately developing into a complex and persistent wine that simply refuses to quit.  — P.G.  (6/1/2012)

Domaine Serene 2008 Evenstad Reserve Pinot Noir (Willamette Valley)

  • Cellar Selection
  1. $65
Dark, full, generous and ripe to the far edge of elegance, this powerful Pinot is saturated with black fruits, annotated with fennel, pepper, smoke and espresso, the rich and varied flavors rolling right through a lush midpalate and on into a gently fading finish. Retasted over 24–48 hours, it continued to evolve and develop additional nuances. A wine to cellar for…  — P.G.  (6/1/2012)

Domaine Serene 2008 Mark Bradford Vineyard Pinot Noir (Dundee Hills)

  • Editors' Choice
  1. $90
Domaine Serene has been dialing down the new oak (at least as far as its impact on the wines) and making more and more nuanced wines, that truly capture the terroir of their spectacular Dundee Hills vineyards. Here is a beautiful mix of supple fruits—cherries and berries, with appealing sweetness—along with delicate highlights of spice and herb. It’s finished with…  — P.G.  (10/1/2011)

Domaine Serene 2003 Grace Vineyard Pinot Noir (Willamette Valley)

  1. $90
Oregon Pinot at the top of its game; firm and tannic, with a complex mix of berry-driven fruits and lively spices. There is plenty of midpalate concentration, power and length, as the fruit unwinds with blackberry, plum, anise and hints of herb. Dry, green-tea flavored tannins wrap it all into a tidy bundle.  — P.G.  (9/1/2006)

Domaine Serene 2010 Evenstad Reserve Pinot Noir (Willamette Valley)

  • Cellar Selection
  1. $65
Dense, dark and spicy, this opens with a thicket of briar and bramble—one almost wants to say thistle—wrapped around taut, compact black fruits. There is a hint of gun metal running through the palate, and as the wine warms and slowly opens, it reveals a lingering finish with a little pat of butter left on the tongue. This should be in fine shape for at least…  — P.G.  (12/1/2013)

Domaine Serene 2010 Evanstad Reserve Chardonnay (Dundee Hills)

  • Editors' Choice
  1. $45
Give this Burgundian-style Chardonnay some extra breathing time and it rewards you with tight, fine-spun and complex flavors of lemon meringue, orange peel and brioche, with a streak of creamy vanilla. It’s the sort of wine that invites reflection and rewards patience.  — P.G.  (8/1/2012)

Domaine Serene 2008 Etoile Vineyard Dijon Clones Chardonnay (Dundee Hills)

  1. $45
Estate-grown, fermented in small, neutral oak and given extended lees stirring in the Burgundian style, this concentrated, textural, sensuous offering brings intensity on all fronts. The deep flavors of lemon, orange, apple and pear are wrapped in bright acids and lightly toasty tannins. Excellent concentration and length.  — P.G.  (10/1/2011)
