Blood and citrus take front and center as The red fruits and blackberries recede, especially as compared to one year ago. This is entering its later phases with dignity and force. Arguably at its best right this minute but not petering out by any means.

Flawed cork - oxidized wine. Two bottles in a row. The same thin red "line" on both corks. :-(

Bottling machine malfunction or batch of bad corks?

Deep red, appears youthful. Very nice nose, Oregon in style with more fruit and less earth. Big in the mouth, fairly intense flavors that are also fairly rounded and balanced. Medium long finish.
Drank it over two nights: pork roast night one, spaghetti night two. Went great with both, but the wine was a little more "together" the first night. I'd say it can hold a few more years easily... not sure if it is a 15 year wine though.
I quite liked this wine, more than others here apparently, but did note that it developed very little in the glass over time. It stayed youthful and powerful without the complexity you might find in a Burgundy of similar price. I still give it a fair QPR rating and recommend it as a good example of Oregon style.

    3/3/19, 7:34 AM - I chuckled at your mentioning of the wine was a bit more "together" on the first night because every single Domaine Serene wine I've had, no matter the vineyard, vintage or age - the second night has always fallen apart. :)

This was really great - one of the better domestic pinots I've had. S really enjoyed as well. Will have to seek out more from this producer.

Good Pinot no doubt.

PnP and consumed with some light snacks of cheese, crackers and nuts. Bright purple, good clarity and a nose of fresh ripe cherries.

Well balanced and the ripe fruits of cherry and cranberry shine on. Soft mouth feel and decently integrated already.

I do enjoy Domaine Serene wines and have for many years but as their prices inch up I find I turn to equally as good Oregon Pinot from multiple sources and at half the price.
