Winemaker Notes

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 of bright cherry and a crushed rock character. The wine has wonderful balance and suppleness that sustain the elegant long finish.

WS 95
Wine Spectator
This red is remarkable for its array of vivid flavors on a sleek, airy frame, shading its juicy raspberry and cherry fruit with a streak of wet rock, crushed rose petal and white pepper, all of it put together seamlessly. The finish just doesn't quit. Drink now through 2020. 971 cases made.
WE 95
Wine Enthusiast
In a stellar lineup of 2010 Evening Land Pinots, this is the best. It displays eye-popping character and depth, a ripe powerhouse at just 13.1% alcohol. Black cherry fruit comes laced with cinnamon and baking spice notes. It’s a full, round, rich, and fruity wine that just never quits.
W&S 93
Wine & Spirits
Light and sinewy, with a hint of sour cherry and dark strawberry, this feels poised and a bit distant when first poured, in keeping with the vintage. It broadens with air, the texture going creamy and gently sweet, brightened by fine acidity. It’s a wine that's quiet and composed to serve with smoked sturgeon or cod.
RP 92
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
Evening Land’s 2010 Pinot Noir Seven Springs Vineyard La Source – representing selected, inter alia shallower tufa and weathered basalt soils – predictably has much in common with its generic counterpart, notably an emphasis on invigoratingly tart, juicy cranberry and cherry tinged with sassafras, fruit pit, and black pepper. But here, much more complexity is achieved, including overtones of floral perfume, lemon oil, and licorice as well as a mouthwateringly savory salted red meat undertone that carries through the multilayered and almost unstoppably vibrant finish. The clarity and polish of this performance are unlikely to diminish over the coming decade, but rather to be enhanced by their stay in bottle.

Evening Land Vineyards, Oregon
Image of winery
Founded in 2005, Evening Land Vineyards is an ambitious and unique project dedicated to making world-class Pinot Noir and Chardonnay from the finest sites in California, Oregon and France. From the storied clay and limestone soils of Burgundy to the Eola-Amity Hills in Oregon, the true Sonoma Coast in Occidental and the western lip of Santa Barbara County's Sta. Rita Hills, Evening Land produces wines imbued with spirit of place.

Home to some of America’s most celebrated Pinot Noir, Oregon benefits from a marginal climate where grapes must struggle to achieve full ripeness—a challenge that results in high-quality fruit. By far the most important region is the Willamette Valley, which is further subdivided into six smaller AVAs. Surrounded on three sides by mountain ranges, the Willamette Valley is characterized by warm to hot dry summers and cool, rainy winters during which cloud cover is a near-constant. Along with the warmer AVAs to the south, including Umpqua Valley and Rogue Valley, it benefits from cool Pacific breezes during the growing season. Further inland, Columbia Valley to the north and Snake River Valley to the east experience cooler, wetter conditions. Post-prohibition viticulture is a relatively new addition to the state, which had been previously deemed unsuitable for the planting of Vitis vinifera grape varieties. That all changed in the mid-1960s, when Pinot Noir was first grown successfully along with other Alsatian varieties. Over the next two decades or so, Oregon continued its ascent to become to Pinot Noir powerhouse we know it as today.

The obvious success story of Oregon is Pinot Noir, which here takes on a personality that could be described in general terms as somewhere in between the wines of California and Burgundy, and is often more affordable than either one. The combination of elegant balance, high acidity, and rustic earth plus bright red fruit places it solidly in the middle of the spectrum for this versatile variety. Other successful varieties here include Pinot Gris, Chardonnay, and Riesling.

Pinot Noir

View all wine

One of the most difficult yet rewarding grapes to grow, Pinot Noir is commonly referred to by winemakers as the “heartbreak grape.” However, the greatest red wines of Burgundy prove that it is unquestionably worth the effort. More reflective than most varieties of the land on which it is grown, Pinot Noir prefers a cool climate, requires low yields to achieve high quality, and demands care in the vineyard and lots of attention in the winery. It is an important component of Champagne and the only variety permitted in red Burgundy. Pinot Noir enjoys immense popularity internationally, most notably in Oregon, California, and New Zealand.

In the Glass

Pinot Noir Is all about red fruit—strawberry, raspberry, and cherry. It is relatively pale in color with soft tannins and lively acidity. It ranges in body from very light to the heavier side of medium, typically landing somewhere in the middle—giving it extensive possibilities for food pairing. With age (of which the best examples can handle an astounding amount), it can develop hauntingly beautiful characteristics of fresh earth, autumn leaves, and truffles.

Perfect Pairings

Pinot’s healthy acidity cuts through the oiliness of pink-fleshed fish like salmon, ocean trout, and tuna. Its mild mannered tannins don’t fight with spicy food, and give it enough structure to pair with all sorts of poultry—chicken, quail, and especially duck. As the namesake wine of Boeuf Bourguignon, it can even match with heavier fare. Pinot Noir is also very vegetarian-friendly—most notably with any dish that features mushrooms.

Sommelier Secret

Pinot Noir is dangerously drinkable, highly addictive, and has a bad habit of emptying the wallet. Look for affordable but still delicious examples from Germany (as Spätburgunder), Italy (as Pinot Nero), Chile, New Zealand, and France’s Loire Valley and Alsace regions.
