Deep, wild red cherry plus dried violets and sun-dried thyme introduce you to the Evening Land Pinot Noir Seven Springs. The taste is more pleasure still. Medium, rich body, fine tannins, perfectly ripe fruit and uplifting acidity all play together nicely. A little bit of savory dry-aged beef  (umami) on the long, mostly fruity finish brings on another dimension. Boy is this good…and easy for all Pinot Noir fans to enjoy.

More Information

Evening Land Vineyards is owned by Sashi Moorman and Raj Parr, two long-time and influential California wine veterans (Moorman as winemaker in Santa Barbara, Parr as Sommelier turned vintner). They are the stewards of “Seven Springs Vineyard,” meaning they farm, manage and source all the grapes from there. (The Evening Land and Seven Springs stories are more complex than their best Pinot Noir. This Prince of Pinot story explains it as well as it can be.) As a consumer, the most important factoid is that they make world-class, delicious Pinot Noirs and Chardonnays that pay respect to the special vineyard from which they come.

Not all wine is created equal.
