Oregon Wine – Evening Land Vineyards Gamay noir 2010


With all the deserved hub-bub over Evening Land Seven Springs Vineyard Pinots and Chardonnays,  one of their wines sells out faster than anything else: Celebration Gamay noir,  from the oldest Gamay noir vines in America.

Evening Land Vineyards
Seven Springs Vineyard Gamay noir 2010

$17.95 in any 12 bottle order ($19.95 retail)

We tasted the 2010 Gamay yesterday and it totally rocks.  From vines planted in 1983 comes a serious Gamay noir,  packed with intensity,   gushing with super-juicy black raspberry and cherry,  mixing with earth and peppery accents that pop on the finish.  It’s both deep and pretty.  I recommend decanting if you are drinking this young -  it will age very nicely for a few years.

Previous vintages have sold out rapidly.  In 2010, Evening Land had 1/2 their normal yields of Gamay.  Only 196 cases were made,  the price didn’t go up by a penny (still under $20!)  and it’s all staying in Oregon  –   unless we ship it to you!
