This is the follow-up vintage to the highest scoring Oregon Chardonnay of all time. Wine Spectator rated the 2009 La Source Chard 97 points.
The 2010 follows a very similar flavor and style, wonderfully blending orchard and citrus fruit, mineral, subtle oak, and a clear beam of acidity. Extremely limited. – Marcus
The 2010 La Source is a golden straw colored Chardonnay with aromas that  include citrus and lemon verbena mingled with flint and mineral notes. Flavors include apricot and ripe cantaloupe and the texture is creamy. The texture is complex and the finish lingers on the palate.

The most complex and age-worthy Evening Land Pinot noir, Red Queen gains nuance and intrigue from partial whole-cluster fermentation. A fan of spices, rose, mineral, and dark red fruit expands from the aromas and into the layered palate, carrying sweet dark cherry and plum through the finish. Also extremely limited. – Marcus

Dark ruby red in color with brilliant garnet tones, the nose is open, voluptuous and aerial with complex aromas of fresh sweet dark plum and cherry, notes of dusty rose complemented with spicy notes of green peppercorn and black olive. The palate has layered rich tannins and seductive candied fruit flavors wrapped in the round mouth feel. This wine shows great aging potential, but is already a crowd pleaser.

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.
