Evening Land Vineyards

Seven Springs Vineyard Pinot Noir 2017

Checking in on a 2017 after a fantastic 16 recently. Despite being such a youthful wine, this shows excellent balance. The fruit has plenty of power, but the structure and complex texture are in great harmony. The aromatics are alluring and inviting. This will only get better, but is wonderful now. — 20 days ago

Failla

Willamette Valley Pinot Noir 2018

Drinking US pinots this week. First up is from Ehren Jordan’s project in Willamette Valley. Impressive Pinot here - great winemaking. Fruit from Eola and Chehalem. 30% whole cluster + 15 % new oak. Ripe cherry, crushed flowers, and hints of mocha on the nose lead to pomegranate and earthiness on the palate. Smooth tannins and savory mouthfeel. Nicely done. 2018 vintage on Mar 20, 2020 — 21 days ago

Morgon Gamay 2018

Had the 2018 a couple of months back and trying to save my next few bottles for the next 5yrs or so (I think Vegas has the over under at 2). Usual flavor profile, but feels like it’s packed in a bit more and denser than usual. Looking forward to it unfurling over time. — 21 days ago

Im sure the wine is good, but personally, I think that is one of the ugliest labels.

Don’t judge the wine by the label, @MICHAEL COOPER

I know the wine and have been to the winery and obviously the most important thing in any wine is what's in the bottle and the people who make it and the land it is made from, but, in the world we live in, wines are judged by their labels. Sometimes less is more and this wine, in my opinion, would be better off with that same text on just a white background. There are too many things going on there. There's like an old wood old west frame? There's yellow text and red text and there's a bizarre reflection/shadow of the oak tree...

Pierre Boisson

Meursault Chardonnay 2015

Pierre Boisson’s 2015 Meursault displays a seductive bouquet, which shows the ripeness of the vintage, yet perfectly balanced with the house style, as crushed oyster shell meets ripe tropical fruits, with notes of ginger, sage and white smoke.  It cascades across the palate contrasting textural richness with saline-minerals and biting acidity as a note of ripe yellow apple fills the senses.  The finish is long, gaining a savory edge, as hints of tropical fruit and exotic florals resonate throughout. — 22 days ago
