94 Points from Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

The 2016 Pinot Noir Yamhill Cuvée aged 14 months in 44% new French oak. It has a medium ruby-purple color and explosive aromas of warm cranberry sauce, cinnamon stick, clove, forest floor and tar notes with red currants, black cherries, crushed blackberries, tree bark and dried flowers plus an orange peel hint. Medium-bodied and silky, it explodes with ripe fruits, earthy nuances and spices, softly framed and fresh with a long, layered finish.

 

93 Points from James Suckling

This is an earthy and attractive wine that has a deeply spicy red-cherry thread that offers a bright and more centrally focused palate than many other pinots from Serene, making for immediate appeal. Drink now.

 

92 Points from Wine Spectator

Offers a brooding undercurrent of firm structure, wrapped in alluring cherry and blueberry flavors, accented by clove and black tea notes. Finishes with refined tannins. Drink now through 2026.

 

Winemaker Notes

Yamhill Cuvée is named for the county where all of the Domaine Serene Estates are located. This signature blend includes grapes from the Dundee Hills, Eola-Amity Hills, and Yamhill-Carlton AVA's. It is consistent and approachable, with a textural profile that is vibrant, silky, and persistent.

Dark ruby in color, the Yamhill Cuvée is extremely expressive showcasing heavenly aromas of cocoa, pomegranate, clove, and star anise. A patchwork of cherry, cranberry cocktail, and blueberry flavors explode on the palate. Polished and plush, its seamlessly integrated and inviting tannins lead to a long, lingering finish. An extremely appealing wine, its complexity leaves you thirsty for more.
