    Winemaker's Notes:

    2006 is destined to be a classic. Nearly perfect conditions at bloom and a long warm growing season led to a warm harvest producing fully ripened and mature fruit of exceptional quality. A relatively mild spring, followed by warm and dry months and small heat spikes in June and September, allowed for additional hang-time and promoted flavor development and concentration. Continued warmth in September and October, despite a few periods of rain, resulted in a fast and furious harvest. The mild, late rains cooled the fruit, tempering the hot days and slowing sugar development. This resulted in optimal ripeness and maturity. Truly a "vintage made in the vineyard", our regimen of thinning to one cluster per shoot allowed us to achieve our average crop yield of 2 tons per acre, producing wines with rich, concentrated flavors and balance while maintaining the elegance and lush varietal character that Domaine Serene is famous for.

    Critical Acclaim:

    The 2006 Pinot Noir Winery Hill Vineyard is sourced from Dijon clones planted in 2000 and 2001. It was fermented with 3.5% stems for additional spiciness. Dark ruby-colored, it offers up a spicy, cigar box perfume along with expressive blue and black fruits. On the palate it is quite dense and weighty with layers of savory dark fruit flavors bordering on opulence. This rich wine has a finish lasting for nearly a minute. Drink it from 2012 to 2020.

    Lithe, elegant and refined, with a nice transparency to the currant and blueberry flavors and spicy, toasty overtones, all sailing easily over polished tannins on the focused finish. Best from 2010 through 2016. 225 cases made.
