Light ruby in color. Dramatic aromatic lift with notes of red cherry, freshly cut roses, sage, menthol, and mulch with oak spice accents. Mid-weight with good acidity and very long, bitter finish. Sourced from the oldest vines in Seven Springs Vineyard and representing Evening Land’s smallest production bottling, the yields are very low as the vines are own rooted and slowly succumbing to phylloxera. The grapes are fermented 100% whole cluster then aged 16 months in 100% new French oak Ermitage barrels. This is a lovely wine that is about subtlety rather than sappy fruit. 12.5% ABV. $100.

Earthy, funky, red fruit, spice, and floral all rolled into one. M+ acid, chalky in a good way front tannin, m body, and long finish. This wine is screaming to be paired with braised duck with a wild mushroom sauce.

Woohooo!!! This is good. From the last of the original vine plantings that haven't been affected by phylloxera on the Seven Springs Vineyard. 100% whole cluster yumminess. All of the complexity of La Source with a more elegant palate and expressive nose. More approachable than all the other Evening Land Pinots, but this could age nicely for the next 10-15yrs.@June's All Day, Austin TX

From a maker’s dinner with Sashi Moorman. Great concentration balanced with elegance.

Fun tasting a bunch with Rajat Parr hosting the evening. This in particular was impressive with a long life ahead.

From a vineyard that has phylloxera and maybe has a few more years to produce. 100% whole cluster fermented. An interesting and satisfying Pinot. I like the rustic notes interspersed with the lively fruit.
