Sometimes in a challenging vintage such as 2009, it is the least expensive, blended wines that benefit most, perhaps because grapes normally destined for the single-vineyard wines are redirected. Here, rich fruit flavors highlighted with streaks of caramel and toffee get things rolling quickly. Berries and cherries, firm acids, pretty spice and a lingering butterscotch finish.
The Serene 2009 Pinot Noir Yamhill Cuvee offers sweeter red berry flavors than does the corresponding 2010, with brown spice accents and nicely integrated tannic chew. Pure-fruited and with ample finishing juiciness, this betrays none of its vintage’s weak sides and ought to drink well for another several years. The domaine of Ken and Grace Evenstad now incorporates 150 spectacularly-situated and manicured acres of vines in two Dundee sectors -Evenstad Estate and Winery Hill - a steep half mile or so apart; and a larger one - Jerusalem Hill Estate - in the Eola Hills.
