Evening Land Vineyards

Red Queen Seven Springs Vineyard Pinot Noir 2008

I've got a love-hate relationship with Oregon Pinot Noir, and now that I've figured out what I love oh, I'm going to start buying these when I see them! Very grippy, full throttle, fruit in your face Pinot Noir. But it does not go to a jammy or generic or metallic, almost watered down side. This, my friends, is Pinot Noir. Roasted Bing cherry, a little bit spicy, a little bit dirty. Very elegant and round all the way through out with a nice pucker on the finish. Kept coming back to this one more so than the Aubert Ritchie 10. Still a ton of life left. Really nice Pinot. — 22 days ago

First experience with this offering from Evening Land...thought this was really well crafted. I’m assuming whole cluster was utilized here as it gave it that perfumed lift on the nose with the spicy and crunchy palate. Potpourri, old bing cherries, stemmy aromatics. Cranberry tart, red clay, dark plum on the palate. Great acidity.

Villa Graziella

Riserva Chianti Sangiovese Blend 2015

A deep Ruby colored wine with aromas of herbal and vegetable tones, cherry and blackberry on the nose.
This organic, 100% hand picked grape Wine come aged in French Oak is a wonderful blend that starts off with some sour cherry fruit the Cabernet give some structure and a longer finish. Nice maturity with vegetable and mushroom tones, balanced tannins, and give it some air to really show its character.
This organic, 100% hand pick Grape Wine pairs well with shrimp Venezia that has spinach fettuccine, artichoke hearts, black olives in a tomato basil sauce. You should be hungry by now. Enjoy this excellent blend. Winesbyrenee.com.

Asili Di Barbaresco Nebbiolo 2015

Terrific wine with lots of vibrancy. If Barbaresco is the queen of Nebbiolo, she's as tough as Elizabeth I or II. One for opening in several years. — a month ago

Queen Of Spain

Sauvignon Blanc 2018

Queen of Spain Sauvignon Blanc 2018, Spain


Pale lemon in color with a yellow tint.

Great fruity nose with citrus, tropical fruits, peaches, bananas, pink bubblegum (Bazooka), pineapples and red apples.

Medium plus in body with medium plus acidity.

Dry on the palate with apples, tropical fruits, pineapples, bananas, light spices and almonds.

Medium finish with almonds and limes.

This is a great Sauvignon Blanc from Spain. Not very typical to find out of Spain. A Fun wine for parties, easy drinking and tasty.

Fruit forward with lots of tropical fruit notes. Loved the nose and kept smelling on it.

Good by itself or with food. I paired it with a charcuterie board of meats and cheeses.

13% alcohol by volume. Organic.

89 points.

Queen D Applegate Valley White Blend 2016

32/23/23/22 blend of Vermentino, Marsanne, Rousanne and Grenache Blanc. Pale white, excellent clarity. Floral and stone fruit notes in nose. Lemon, lime, tangerine pith and stone fruit flavors, lime and mineral in finish, almost dry, robust level of acidity with a variety of acids - tartaric, citric, malic. Slight carbonation in the mouth - tactile-wise, not visually. Good food wine but Vermentino character makes it suitable as an aperitif. Grenache Blanc gives it a moderate skin astringency on finish along with an herbal (dill) and slight white pepper aftertaste. Overnight, a ripe black plum skin flavor emerges in the finish, accompanied by a tart, slightly chalky flavor, maybe from lees contact. Complex flavor profile; the varietal blend and proportions largely work here. Fun wine but still easy to drink despite the apparent complexity of its components. Creative but successful wine craft overall. — a month ago

Photos of; two aspect views of Domaine Leroy & Madame Lalou Bize-Leroy (The Queen of Burgundy) in her precious vineyards. She all about bio-dynamic, prunes by hand and sings to her vines. And, who could argue her success.
