October 11, 2016 - PNP at a restaurant. A little more earth than previous bottles I've had, with some forest and mushroom aromas. After some time in the glass, the more common strawberry fruit tastes emerged. Complex, with a nice finish. A terrific wine that is also always a crowd-pleaser for those who aren't wine snobs.

August 14, 2016 - This bottle seemed a little bit closed. Re-corked and will visit again the following night.

August 13, 2016 - From the nose to the finish, a fantastic wine, notes of cherry, cola, and spice, continues to evolve an hour after opening.

August 6, 2016 - Two bottles shared with colleagues for a "Pinots of Oregon" dinner. (I brought 2011 Argyle Knudsen Brut, 2013 Domaine Serene Coeur Blanc, 2008 Beaux Freres Vineyard, and 2012 Domaine Serene Evenstad to share.)
WOTN for 9 of the 11 people at the table. This was outstanding. Rich strawberry and raspberry, a subtle hint of cinnamon and sweetness. Everything is in great balance here--it's rich and expressive at the same time, with enough acidic structure remaining to last at least a couple more years. Terrific.1 person found this helpful Comment

July 13, 2016 - Bright red fruit aromas and flavors, just slightly starting to mature. Lots of baking spice. Good concentration and length. Perhaps a touch sweet on finish. Overall, very well done.
