    Winemaker's Notes:

    The 2008 wines are reminiscent of the wonderful 2000 vintage; great purity of fruit and structure. Critics and fans alike agree that these wines may someday be counted as some of the best made in Oregon.

    Critical Acclaim:

    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 a decade or more. Cellar Selection

    Sleek and tangy, tightly focusing its cherry, raspberry and mineral flavors on a taut frame. Finishes with intensity and a hint of black olive. Drink now through 2018.

    Wine Spectator

    The 2008 Evenstad Reserve has a super-expressive nose of smoke, spice, mineral, incense, black cherry, and black raspberry. This leads to a medium-bodied, stuffed wine containing layers of ripe fruit, outstanding volume, vibrant acidity, and a lengthy, velvety finish. It will benefit from 2-3 years of additional bottle age and will offer prime drinking from 2012 to 2020.

    The Wine Advocate

    Fresh cherry nose; racy, crisp and ripe with tangy acidity and lovely bright fruit.

    Tasting Panel

    Dark and chocolaty, this yields hints of raspberries with air. The palate has a tea-like accent and a seamless texture with plenty of oak to mark the finish. Give it time in the cellar to knit.

    I <3 Pinot (5/6/2013)
    It's Friday night, and how am I going to celebrate? I'm glad you asked, because it gives me an opportunity to tell you that this Pinot Noir is The One. Rich and silky and juicy, great on its own but never overpowering my dinner, this wine wins every vintage. The 2008 - a spectacular year in the Willamette Valley - is just as excellent as I expected. I always know what I'm going to get with this wine: versatility, grace, understated power.

    This is one of my absolute favorite wines! It is really versatile and soft and silky like no other Oregon Pinot I've ever had. From someone who loves Oregon Pinot for its complexity, Domaine Serene also has amazing consistency. I love their Yamhill Cuvée as well, and I wish Wine.com sold it.

    Delicious easy pinot lacks tannins but the fruity dance on the tongue and higjer alcohol content make it sheer joy to drink. Make sure to let it sit in a large mouth wine glass while you imbibe slowly...notice how the floral and spice notes evolve.
