Notes of sour cherry, strawberry and orange peel with hints of balsa, hazelnuts, soil and smoke. Light to medium bodied wine with a silky mouthfeel. Slightly disjointed with noticeable acidity and tannins typical of a young OR pn. Medium long finish. Light on its feet with 13.1% etoh. This is tasty now but will probably improve over the next 5 to 10 years. At that point, this wine will definitely appeal to those who like a more delicate styled expression of Pinot noir. Lacks the complexity and body of pinots from 08 and 05, but outstanding nonetheless. Red guy A- (based on potential).

Cost at LWS: $50

Great note. Thanks for posting. Obviously a solid effort. However, I think that once the Evening Land team gets 'dialed-in' on how best to work with Seven Springs fruit that they have the component pieces to produce potentially phenomenal wines. As much as I recoil from their 'money trumps everything' approach, I have to admit that they are producing very good wines right out of the gate.

Thanks. The few Evening Lands I have tried have been solid, but not other worldly. Honestly, I am not sure how this one got 96 points. Confused

Red dude,

Had this and one other Evening Land at the Dundee Wine Bar on my previous trip north of the border. Both nice, but I had a long list of other PNs I would have rather purchased.

There are more than a few people wondering the same thing.
