2012 Domaine Serene Winery Hill Vineyard Dundee Hills Oregon Pinot Noir

14.0% alc., 314 cases, $90 (member exclusive). Estate grown, produced and bottled. Sourced from a 20-acre, dry-farmed, south and west facing vineyard closely planted to several Dijon clones in Jory soil at 800 to 900 feet elevation (highest elevation on the Estate). Planted in 2000 while the winery was under construction. Aged 16 months in French oak barrels, 57% new. · Moderate reddish purple color in the glass. Initial conservative aromas of darker cherry, woodland and musk blossom over time in the glass adding inviting scents of baking spices, potpourri and dark berries. Very enchanting on the palate, with a mid weight core of black cherry, black raspberry and blackberry fruit flavors dressed in subtle oak seasoning. Silky in the mouth, with matched intricate tannins, and juicy acidity that infuses the finish with lip-smacking brightness. Still very appealing the following day from a previously opened and re-corked bottle. Score: 92. Reviewed March 12, 2016 WINERY » ARTICLE »
