2012 Evening Land Vineyards Pinot Noir Seven Springs Vineyard

Eola - Amity Hills more

6/28/2015 - Eric Guido Likes this wine: 92 points

Gorgeous, ripe cherry and raspberry fruit framed by earth, sweet florals, exotic spice and the slightest hint of oak. It was seamless and silky on the palate with brilliant red fruit, hinting at herbs with notes of spiced orange and minerality. The finish was medium in length, show poise with refreshing acidity giving life to notes of tart cherry. This was stunning, a wine of beautiful balance which provides a real sophisticated rendition of Oregon Pinot Noir .

he nose showed a ripe, yet otherwise classic nose of dark red fruits, crushed strawberry, cedar, and sweet spice. On the palate, I found smooth, almost silky textures cut by a core of concentrated red berry fruit and a vibrant lash of acidity. Dark soil and inner floral tones lingered long on the finish with a hint of dried cherry. This didn’t show the overt ripeness of the year, in fact, it performed very well.

It’s rare that I open a tasting note with the word, WOW—but here it applies. The nose showed a perfectly balanced and intense mix of fruit, mineral and funk, with Tete de Moine (cheese), lemon, crushed stone, chalk dust and spiced orange peel. On the palate, it showed ripe peach, pineapple and melon with a coating of minerality and rejuvenating waves of fresh acidity. The finish was long and intense, as the funky notes returned (do I detect a hint of Botrytis) along with citrus and minerals.

The nose showed woodland and herbal tones with intense, crushed wild berry, hints of spice, and refreshing citrus note. On the palate, it was youthfully firm with a finessed, feminine frame, showing red berry and inner floral tones. The finish showed floral and undergrowth with hints of soil and minerals. Very nicely done.

The nose showed intense red berry and cedar with minty herbal tones adding freshness. On the palate, it showed soft, supple textures with red currant and wild berry fruits, licorice and tarry tannin providing grip and balance. It was long on concentrated red berry and herbs throughout the finish. The ’06 Lafon-Rochet was very pleasant and easy to like.

The nose was intense and dark with exotic spice, floral tones, pine, tobacco and hints of dried cherry. On the palate, it was at first silky and medium-weight, yet fine tannin coated the senses as notes of tart cherry, balsamic tones and floral rose saturated the senses. The finish was firm, showing dried red fruit and spice, as a bump of acidity provided a refreshing lift. This was a pleasure to drink.

The nose was intense, with earth and floral tones up front followed by wet slate, smoke, cheese rind and a hint of peach. On the palate, there was tremendous depth with young mango, green apple, a spritz of citrus and dazzling inner floral tones. It finished long with palate-coating citrus and minerals, yet tight, like a bomb waiting to explode. This was gorgeous.

6/21/2015 - Eric Guido Likes this wine: 93 points

This was a wine of contrasts; rich and elegant with a seductive bouquet of ripe black cherry, currant, cola and sweet herbs. It turned to earthiness over time, with dark soil, herbal tones, and a hedonistic whiff of brown sugar. On the palate, I found smooth silky textures, verging on velvet yet remaining balanced throughout, with rich dark fruits, licorice, black cherry, plum and sweet herbs. The finish was long and sappy at first, yet turning fresh with concentrated ripe raspberry fruit and lingering long. (93 points)

It coated the senses with tart citrus and apricot fruit, along with a wave of mouthwatering acidity, which refreshed the senses. The finish showed rich pit fruits with contrasting tart citrus. This was very pretty and remarkably refreshing.

The nose showed mineral intensity and ripe stone fruits. On the palate, it was ripe in fruit yet lacked any serious depth. I have to wonder if extended exposure to air would bring this to life. As it is now, it’s very hard to read.
