    August 24, 2016 - WIML90

    Tasted blind.

    Light yellow color in the glass, clear looking throughout. Nose of spice, ricola, citrus and mixed yellow fruits. Flavors of lemon, peach wasser and pears. Tangy acidity, medium body. Drink over the short term. My guess was this is a 2012 Oregon Chardonnay.

    May 30, 2015 - pale lemon

    Flinty, immediate "burg" characteristics, steely, minerally, This nose is all white burgundy

    Same flintiness here, citrus rather than stone fruit, grapefruit, slightly dirty, lemon, very precise

    Very interested to see if this softens and develops in a few years

    May 20, 2015 - Tasted alongside the 2010 La Source over three days. An excellent wine, elegant even, revealing excellent purity of fruit and terroir. Overall, though arguably more charming than the La Source, it does not deliver the same exhilarating punch or bracing structure. For this style of wine I prefer Burgundy.

    March 9, 2015 - Tasted twice, upon opening around midday, then with dinner. This is a ridiculously interesting wine, intensely juicy, showing kumquat, gooseberry, tangerine, florals, impression of ocean salinity, and kiss of dry mead. Exceptional weight, balance, and texture. It changes inflection beautifully. Massively structured, palate-coating, and very long. My impression is that the more affordable 2010 La Source is every bit as good, or better, but was able to enjoy the La Source over three days. Will have to sample both side-by-side, in the name of science of course.

    April 13, 2014 - It's a descent Chard but for $70 I expected more from Evening Land.
