2015 Domaine Serene "Evenstad Reserve" Dundee Hills Pinot Noir

SKU #1383658 94 points Vinous

Outer quote mark Shimmering ruby. Expansive aromas of fresh dark berries, cherry cola, potpourri and exotic spices; vanilla and espresso notes emerge as the wine opens up. Sweet, fleshy and seamless in texture, offering palate-staining black raspberry, cherry liqueur, vanilla and spicecake flavors and a sexy violet pastille nuance. Velvety tannins build slowly on the finish, which hangs on with impressive, floral- and spice-dominated persistence. (JR) Inner quote mark (6/2019)

94 points Wine Enthusiast

Outer quote mark This reserve is an excellent representation of the 2015 vintage. Firm, supple and loaded with brambly purple fruit, it carries a pleasing touch of fruit sweetness. It rolls gracefully into a tight finish, with layers of herb, earth, blueberry, black cherry and brown spice notes. *Editor's Choice* (PG) Inner quote mark (8/2018)

94 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark Polished and gracefully complex, with refined raspberry and strawberry flavors accented by toasty cinnamon and river stone notes, finishing with lithe tannins. Drink now through 2025. (TF) Inner quote mark (2/2019)

92 points Decanter

Outer quote mark An expressive bouquet of potpourri, lavender, dark berries and cassis introduces a full-bodied, ample wine with notably more power and structure than the other wines in the Domaine Serene portfolio, as well as juicy balancing acidity. (WK) Inner quote mark

90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The pale to medium ruby-purple 2015 Pinot Noir Evenstad Reserve opens with touches of tar and tilled earth over black cherries, blackcurrants and licorice laced with brown sugar and cardamom. Medium to full-bodied, it fills the mouth with warm fruits and spices and has a good frame of fine, grainy tannins with juicy freshness and potpourri/tea leaf suggestions on the long finish. As always, the Domaine Serene wines are hedonistic in style: big and bold with lush, ripe fruit and plenty of classy new oak. They're hedonistic, open wines for lovers of a New World style. I was impressed with some older vintages opened for my tasting. Although these wines are approachable on release, you might consider giving them some time in bottle, because they sure do sing after some bottle aging. (EB) 90+ Inner quote mark (8/2018)
