LCBO Vintages Classics Collection
The Yamhill Cuvée has an aroma profile of red fruits, minerals, spice, earth, and hint of French Oak. The palate offers youthful tannins and balanced acidity which leads to a smooth and graceful finish. It is approachable in its youth, while maintaining the elegance and finesse of a Domaine Serene Pinot Noir.
“Gorgeous Pinot with dried strawberry and spice character. Full body, soft tannins, and remains fresh and lively. Lovely combination of ripe fruit and acidity. Drink or hold.”

“This cuvée offers the pleasures of sweet, sappy red fruits, soft tannins and broad swaths of caramel, toasted hazelnuts and mocha. It coats the tongue with flavour and has a sort of insistence that the next sip will be even better.”

“Taut and focused, with lively notes of cinnamon-accented raspberry and strawberry, set on a deftly dancing structure. Lingers easily on the expressive finish. Best from 2018 through 2023.”
