2008 Evening Land "La Source - Seven Springs Vineyard" Eola-Amity Hills Pinot Noir

SKU #1156939 96 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark Refined, elegant, focused and complex, piling layer upon layer of subtle flavors onto a racy, deftly balanced frame. Blackberry, currant and mineral notes compete for attention and mingle harmoniously on the long, expressive finish. *Collectibles and Top 100 Wines of 2010* (HS) Inner quote mark (12/2010)

94 points Wine & Spirits

Outer quote mark Held at first under dense blue fruit aromas, with just a little air this wine reveals fine black- and red cherry accents. It continues to evolve over time as the flavors lift off, the fresh, succulent fruit seemingly lit from within, with that high-toned grace on which Oregon originally developed its reputation. It has a hint of the forest floor and a seductive, lingering aftertaste of cherry skin. This could benefit from cellaring; then serve with roast chicken. Inner quote mark (4/2011)

93 points Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The 2008 Pinot Noir La Source received the same elevage but was picked from a different parcel of the vineyard. It is slightly darker in color with more perfumed and complex aromatics with the addition of some earthy minerality. Savory, supple, and elegant, it will benefit from 3-4 years of additional bottle age and offer a drinking window extending from 2013 to 2023. (JM) Inner quote mark (10/2010)

93 points Int'l Wine Cellar

Outer quote mark Ruby-red. Candied red and dark berry aromas are complemented by musky floral and herbal qualities, with notes of cocoa powder and anise sneaking in with aeration. Lush and creamy on entry, then shockingly energetic in the middle, offering sweet black raspberry and bitter cherry flavors and a spine of lively acidity. Finishes on a dark fruit note, with velvety tannins and excellent clarity. (JR) Inner quote mark (7/2010)
