Review:

Without question one of the wines of the vintage. Aromatically sublime, seamlessly textured, built for your cellar. Crushed red and black raspberry unite with floral and mineral elements in this balanced gem. Expect it to sell out before Wine Spectator's rating is published, so consider this your chance to stock up. - Marcus

Previous vintage tasting notes:

2010 Wine Spectator - 95 points - Remarkable for its array of vivid flavors on a sleek, airy frame, shading its juicy raspberry and cherry fruit with a streak of wet rock, crushed rose petal and white pepper, all of it put together seamlessly. The finish just doesn't quit. Drink now through 2020. - H.S.

The 2010 Seven Springs La Source Pinot noir is clear ruby red in color with purple tones; the elegant nose dances between red and black wild berry aromas. The nose has layers of fragrant floral and spice notes including rose, lavender, exotic anise, and cinnamon complex aromas that are tight and subdued and take a few moments in the glass to develop. The palate has a fine texture of soft tannins with purity of flavors bright cherry and a crushed rock character. The wine has wonderful balance and suppleness that sustain the elegant long finish.

2009 Vintage

Wine Spectator 96 points

2009 Wine Spectator - 92 points - Light and tangy, with hints of blueberry and plum behind the raspberry and slate flavors up front, lingering nicely on the delicate finish. Drink now through 2019. 422 cases made. - H.S.

Consulting Winemaker Dominique Lafon's famous white Burgundies are prized for their exquisite expression of terroir. The Evening Land Pinots show the same extraordinary sophistication. He and winemaker Isabelle Meunier are producing some remarkable wines, bringing a new and exciting perspective to Oregon Pinot noir. - Jean

This is Evening Land Vineyards' flagship Pinot noir, made from the oldest Pinot vines at Seven Springs Vineyard. The vines grow on a tiny ledge at the bottom well of the La Source Cross where the ancient lava flow spread from North to South. The Witzel soils of Summum are extremely shallow and measure less than one foot before the roots strike hardened lava.
