95Wine Spectator

Lithe and satiny, this glows with rich plum, blueberry, clove and crême caramel flavors, melding smoothly and lingering on the refined, evocative finish. Shows density and elegance.

93The Wine Advocate

...lovely nose of spicy red fruits, incense, cinnamon, and cherry blossom. Savory, ripe, and smooth textured, it has the balance and structure...

...attractive texture to the concentrated, intense and ripe flavors that are shaped by phenolically mature tannins. The suave yet detailed finish displays good energy and excellent length on the balanced... Lovely juice.

91Wine Enthusiast

A tight, spicy Pinot with a chocolate heart... The fruit and tannins are tightly wound at the moment, with a lavish coating of milk chocolate...

Domaine Serene is known for its single vineyard Pinot Noirs. It also produces Chardonnay.


United States, Oregon, Willamette Valley

Willamette Valley AVA was established in 1983, and it is the oldest appellation in Oregon. Oregon’s modern wine industry began in the Willamette Valley in the 1960s when artists, vagabond winemakers, and U.C. Davis oenology graduates looking for new territory started their own, small, off-the-grid wineries. The appellation is the state’s largest, and it extends 175 miles from Columbia River on the Washington/Oregon border to just south of Eugene, near central Oregon. The Willamette River runs through the area, helping to give the appellation a mild year-round climate. There are six smaller sub-appellations within this AVA, but altogether the Willamette Valley has the largest concentration of wineries in Oregon, as well as the majority of the state’s most famous producers. Pinot Noir is king here, followed by Chardonnay, Pinot Gris and Riesling. To most admirers of Oregon Pinot Noir, Willamette Valley offers the most distinctive wine choices in the state.


Red Wine, Pinot Noir

This red wine is relatively light and can pair with a wide variety of foods. The grape prefers cooler climates and the wine is most often associated with Burgundy, Champagne and the U.S. west coast. Regional differences make it nearly as fickle as it is flexible.
