Review:

Beautiful deep garnet in color, the nose on this wine is pure and elegant with notes of red cherries and blueberry cobbler along with a little spice: pepper, cinnamon and rosemary notes wrapped in a rustic edge. The elegant palate shows great weight with lush and slightly chalky textures, with a very nice length sustained by ripe fruits flavors and spice. - the winery

Los Angeles Times Pick of the Week!

It's easy to detect the hand of consulting winemaker Dominique Lafon in this lush Pinot from Evening Land vineyard in Oregon's Willamette Valley. The 2010's ripe fruit, silken texture and underlying minerality channel a Burgundian elegance. Evening Land's Pinot is a terrific food wine perfect with the holiday turkey or roast beef, with comforting stews and braised dishes.

A wonderful buy for the quality. - L.A. Times

An outstanding value from Oregon's hottest new winery!

2009 Vintage Tasting Notes

The Evening Land Blue Label Pinot noir is made entirely from the winery's Seven Springs Vineyard fruit. Round, supple, ready to drink, the 2009 shows the vintage's big, juicy character without losing structure. Tannins are silky and well integrated, framing the dark, plush plum, black berry, and cherry fruit flavors. A lilt of fresh fruit acidity adds freshness.

While the purchase of Seven Springs Vineyard by "outsiders" several years ago was controversial at the time, the extensive renovation and replanting clearly shows in the string of high profile, highly rated wines from Evening Land. Wine Spectator's Harvey Steiman recently gave the la Source Pinot noir 08 96 points, the highest score he's ever given an Oregon Pinor noir.

High profile consulting winemaker Dominique Lafon, rising star winemaker Isabelle Meunier, and new hire Larry Stone (Rubicon) as President and General Manager, give this winery an all-star cast of characters befitting its founder, Mark Tarlov's, success in Hollywood.

2008 Vintage Tasting Notes

Phenomenal, ultra-silky texture. Deep aromas lead into mouthwatering blackberry, strawberry, raspberry and blood orange notes that perfectly complemented by toasty baking spices and white pepper on the finish. This is a wine that makes you hungry! - Marcus

LA Times Wine of the Week 2-11-10 - "Consulting French winemaker Dominique Lafon has imbued this Oregon Pinot Noir with an elegant Burgundian character. Medium-bodied, with a silky texture and finespun finish, the 2008 Evening Land Vineyards Pinot tastes of black cherries and wild plums. A lithe acidity and undertone of minerality give this vintage definition. A beautiful expression of Pinot Noir, and at this price, it is a stunning buy." - S. Irene Virbila

70% Seven Springs, with contributions from well-known Oregon vineyards. Dominique Lafon, Consulting Winemaker to Evening Land Vineyards, visited "friends" in the Willamette Valley and snapped up stellar contributions to the Estate fruit. He designed it as "por ma guile" - for my gullet.
