Wine Description

(From 2012 Vintage) Pinot Noir feature tart-edged, juicy elderberry and blackberry with deep forest floor and meaty underlying elements as well as mouthwatering salinity, all of which elements inform a sustained, buoyant and refreshing finish.

Winemaker's Notes

Pretty aromas of red cherries and blueberry cobbler mingle with sweet spices, black pepper and savory herbs. A core of lush, slightly rustic dark fruit flavors are framed by an edge of chalky minerals.

    Fruit for the 2011 Evening Lands Willamette Valley Pinot Noir comes from Stoller, Lemelson, and Eola Springs vineyards. Each vineyard was selected for their quality farming practices and the distinct terroir of their red volcanic soils. The grapes were hand sorted and the wine was aged in neutral French oak. From the winery: "Beautiful deep garnet color, the nose is pure and elegant with notes of red cherries and blueberry cobbler with a little spice: pepper, cinnamon and rosemary notes wrapped in a rustic edge. The palate shows great weight with lush and slightly chalky textures with a very nice length sustained by ripe fruits flavors and spice."

    I have been a long-time fan of Isabelle Meunier's wines, who heads up Evening Land's Willamette Valley project. 2011, in General was a more difficult vintage, yet Meunier' a Blue Label Pinot retains the elegance I have come to associate with her wine. Effortlessly focused with noted of raspberry, crushed stone and lavender. The core is red fruit, minerality and fine tannins. A wonderful effort in an otherwise challenging vintage.
