Domaine Serene Evenstad Reserve Pinot Noir 2014
An exhibit in the mastery of blending, the 2014 Evenstad Reserve Pinot Noir evokes mystery. Provocative notes of black currant, dark cherries, and cloves fill the glass. In the mouth, it glides effortlessly across the palate exposing waves of complex flavors reminiscent
of blueberry pie and compote. With velvet tannins, brooding depth and concentration, the long weighted finish lingers with great finesse and persistence.
James SucklingA soft and silky pinot with beautiful dried strawberries, blueberries and hints of vanilla to close. Medium to full body, ultra-fine tannins and a fruity finish. This is all about subtlety and freshness. Drink now.
Wine EnthusiastThere is a darker fruit spectrum evident in the reserve, with notes of coffee, smoke, black fruits, a touch of charred wood all worked through, and without damping the core fruit flavors. Those bright flavors spotlight raspberry, plum and black cherry. A light cola flavor pokes through, with ripe tannins and proportionate acids. The barrel treatment is beautifully applied, adding sweet spice to the finish.
Wine SpectatorElegant and delicately expressive, with floral cherry and stony mineral aromas and sleekly complex raspberry, tea and spice flavors that build depth toward refined tannins. Drink now through 2023. 12,239 cases made.
