This baby is drinking well right now, but give it a year or three in the cellar to see it really shine!
Deep, brilliant garnet in color, the nose is voluptuous and broad showing red and black fruit at first and then opening into floral notes of rose and lavender with hints of cardamon and dried boletus. The palate is seamless with deep fruit flavors of blueberry and sour cherry cobbler, hints of rosemary and a very fine texture throughout. The finish is precise and direct, sustained by mineral notes and lingering fruit flavors, in the classic Seven Springs Vineyard style.
92 points, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate - "The 2,700 cases of Evening Land's flagship 2011 Pinot Noir Seven Springs Vineyard – comprised of around half Pommard and half Dijon clones – is striking for its immediate display of carnal and mineral dimensions: smoked and roasted red meats, saline and alkaline sea breeze emerge already in the nose, accompanied, to be sure, by ripe dark berries. Tart-edged elderberry and blackberry inform a polished and vivaciously bright palate and correspondingly exuberant, sustained finish. There isn't an ounce of fat or of superficial sweetness here, and an undertone of forest floor and wet stone sets a somewhat somber contrast with the refreshing juiciness of fruit acidity; but the upshot of this dark-light paradox is both intrigue and sensual appeal. Look for high performance through at least 2022."
92 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar - "Vivid red. Spicy cherry and red berry aromas are complemented by zesty minerality and a hint of potpourri. Bitter cherry and black raspberry flavors put on weight with air, showing a silky texture and slow-building sweetness. At once powerful and lively, with the berry and mineral notes echoing on the focused, persistent finish."
When word got out that Burgundy winemaker Dominque Lafon had started making Pinot Noir in Oregon, it created quite a buzz. He signed on as the consulting winemaker for Evening Land Vineyards (ELV), a wine label started in 2005. The name Evening Land was inspired by the lure of Homer's ideal garden and is the final chapter of Homer's Odyssey. Since its founding, the winery has undergone a number of changes, but Lafon continues to play a large role.
