Winemaker Notes

2013 La Source Pinot Noir comes from the old vines planted at the highest part of the hill, where the vines have the most exposure to the wind and where the soils are their shallowest. The Seven Springs Vineyard, farmed biodynamically and organically since 2007, is planted on iron-rich, volcanic soil, with basalt mother rocks. The biodynamic farming of the vineyard showed its worth when the rains of 2013 threatened the vintage, as this method gave the pinot noir a thick exterior and made it resilient to the harmful weather. Evening Land Pinot Noirs are hand-picked, hand-sorted, and destemmed, then treated to a 4-5 day cold soak in open-top oak and concrete fermenters before fermentation begins naturally from indigenous yeasts. Twice daily, gentle punchdowns throughout fermentation encourage soft extraction of tannins. Aging of this wine occurred in 30% new French oak barrels for 16 months, which preserves the elegance of the wine.

Willamette Valley

Pinot Noir

View all wine

Home of some of the planet’s most amazingly elegant and expressive Pinot noir, the Willamette Valley is a pastoral, mixed landscape of green, bucolic rolling hills, dramatic forestlands and small, independent, friendly wine growers. As a leader in environmental stewardship, the valley has some of the nation’s most protective land use policies, with two-thirds of its vineyards farmed sustainably and over half organic. While the valley technically claims a cool, continental climate, and is heavily influenced by the cold, moist winds of the Pacific Ocean, its warm and dry summers allow for the steady, even ripening of Pinot noir.

The potential of Willamette Valley Pinot noir continues to attract the investment of serious growers and winemakers both locally and from abroad, as naturally the finished wines bring accolades from professionals and enthusiasts. With a range of styles from delicate dried cherry, raspberry and hibiscus to stronger notes of truffle, mocha, plum and spice, a fine Willamette Valley Pinot noir is a perfect expression of both power and grace.
