Wine Review: This slightly opaque and dark ruby Pinot Noir from Evening Land is fruity, yet also has a rustic edge to it. It opens with a fragrant boysenberry and blackberry bouquet. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, slightly acidic and juicy. The flavor profile is a mineral infused tart black raspberry with notes of smoky oak and hints of blackberry and .black pepper. The finish is dry and its flavors are a little prolonged. This Pinot is a bit old school and would pair nicely with beef bourguignon. Enjoy – Ken
Winemaker Notes: In this vintage, we made what we consider to be classic Eola-Amity Hills Pinot Noirs - bright, crisp red-fruited wines with medium grained tannins and gently perfumed aromas of grilled matsutake, pine forest and burning incense. A pale cherry-red in color, this wine exhibits a nose dominated by fresh raspberry, cola, cinnamon, and a hint of rose petal. The palate is soft, showing velvety tannins and notes of freshly made grenadine. The wine expresses beautiful minerality, a lingering acidity, and perseverant fruit—distinctive and classic hallmarks of the Seven Springs Estate.
