The second coming of Evening Land's Mad Hatter is in line with Oregon's stellar 2010 Chardonnays. A lush gold color in the glass complements the bright pear nose. More fresh pear in the flavor partners with lemon meringue, adding a touch of zip.

The Mad Hatter will have you smacking your lips, ready for another taste. We started the bottle with dutch oven chicken and finished it with a little popcorn: the Mad Hatter works it all. - Andy

Pale straw in color with a silver edge, the nose is open and lending with floral notes of acacia, white peaches, honeydew melon, and a hint of vanilla. The creamy texture and flavor of tangerine are nicely balanced with lean minerality. The finish is impressively long and round, sustained by bright citrus fruits that demand another glass. - the winery

2009 Vintage

2009 Wine Spectator - 91 points - Taut, tangy, minerally and distinctive for its lemon blossom, grapefruit peel and green pear flavors, persisting easily on the sleek, racy finish. Drink now through 2015. - H.S.

New this vintage, 200 cases made and exclusive to Oregon. The name "Mad Hatter" is another reference to Alice in Wonderland (they also make a Red Queen, White Queen, etc.). Seven Springs Vineyard Estate fruit and 20% nearby Roserock Vineyard.

In Alice in Wonderland Mark finds the tension of opposites - big and small Alice, White and Red Queens, Tweedledee and Tweedledum - the book is full of unresolved opposites. Mark relates the mysterious quality of uncertainty in Alice in Wonderland and in science and mythology to the indefinable complexity of great wines, especially Pinot noir.
