Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
Pear, apple, and lemon delicately garlanded with flowers scent and inform a sherbet-like, silken-textured palate in Domaine Serene’s 2010 Chardonnay Evenstad Reserve. Polished, understated, and subtly soothing, this finishes with satisfying length and retention of primary juiciness, and ought to remain viable for at least a couple of years.
