Wine Review: This dark red Pinot Noir from Evening Land in Oregon is very good. It opens with black raspberry bouquet with hints of vanilla oak and Dr. Pepper. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, slightly acidic and juicy. The flavor profile is black cherry with notes of cola. I also detected a hint of red beet, blueberry and faint oak. The finish is dry and is nicely prolonged. I would pair this very good Pinot with pork tenderloin at your favorite restaurant. Enjoy - Ken
Winemaker Notes: Red, velvety and rich with dark purple in color and ruby edges. The nose shows baking spice, anise, dark cherry cola, fresh blackberry and ripe strawberries. On the palate, there is a robust, silky attack which shows a generous amount of brambleberry and spice. The tannins focus as the wine finishes with a slightly mineral and balanced structure giving the wine an unmistakably long finish.
