Winemaker's Notes

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.

Critical Acclaim

"Juicier than La Source, this has demonstrative black cherry and plum scents framed by hints of woodland briar and dried flowers. The wine is both ripe and lean, with flavors of wild cherry sprinkled with herbs and flowers, generous and clean-lined. Like La Source, it has presence without pronounced body, persistence without weight—contrasts that make the wine completely seductive and suggest a long life ahead."
95 Points

"A delicate, ethereal style, light on its feet, with red berry and Earl Grey tea flavors gliding easily through the long, expressive finish. Gets more interesting with each sip, finishing harmonious and elegant."
94 Points

"Bright ruby-red. A heady, exotic bouquet displays an array of red fruit and floral qualities, with an intense mineral overtone. Graceful and precise, showing a completely different personality than the La Source, with sappy red berry and rose pastille flavors and notes of spicecake and blood orange. Mineral-driven and pure, with excellent finishing clarity and length; this will age on its balance."
94 Points

"The gorgeous nose of Evening Land’s 2009 Pinot Noir Seven Springs Vineyard Summum projects not just mint-, and cardamom-tinged, lightly-cooked pomegranate and red raspberry, but is also – did they blend Chardonnay into this?! – garlanded with iris and gentian. The complex dynamic offered on the palate involves the counterpoint of soothing, metaphorically cooling herbal essences with tart-edged, invigoratingly seedy red fruits; satiny texture with vivacious brightness; and octave leaps between high-toned floral perfume and a stony, woodsy ground. This could keep you and your chosen cuisine glorious company for hours ... or over at least another 6-8 years in bottle."

Learn About Other Oregon

Beyond the main AVAs of Oregon, like Willamette Valley, Rogue and Umpqua, smaller regions are gaining ground. Some you may see on the label include: Columbia or Walla...
