Color: Ruby with a cherry blossom pink rim
Nose: Hints of cherries and berries, vanilla and floral notes. Aroma is reserved yet enchanting.
Taste: This is a fantastic wine. Well balanced tannins and acidity with reserved complexity that could compete with some of the finest French Pinot Noirs. This wine is quite approachable on first taste yet continues to evolve revealing flavors of cherry, tannins, and hints of earthiness unique to Oregon. Medium body, silky texture, and a lingering finish that’s only flaw is that it will leave you wanting for more.
Assessment: This is a special release that will inspire you to invest in future vintages year after year. The complexity and character of this release amounts to a value that far exceeds its initial price point.
Ready to drink now but will hold up with further aging.
Evening Land “7 Springs Vineyard La Source” Pinot Noir is a truly memorable wine. 96 points
Pairing recommendation: Slightly aged Manchego and Dark Chocolate
