    July 26, 2015 - Good but a distracting ethanol like flavor that takes a few hours to blow off

    November 15, 2014 - Ooh, there is nothing like an fine Pinot Noir from Willamette. Enjoyed on an autumn evening, this final bottle of Evening Lands has landed where I hoped it one day would: Outstanding. Lovely ruby in the glass, with fine legs. An enticing nose of spices and berries. Black, red, and blue berries tantalize the tongue, with baking spices on the finish (and dare I say, a hint of pumpkin?!).

    June 16, 2012 - Not partIcularly Oregon in its aroma or palate. But quite nice anyway. Medium body. Floral nose. Cherries and berries to enjoy. Decent finish. Very good even if not very distinctive.

    (Evening Land Pinot Noir) #1; COLOR-medium; NOSE-very candied and very red fruit driven (strawberries) on the attack with a little cooked lard component on the back-end; PALATE-very focused; beautiful cranberries attack your mid-palate; there are 4 different red fruits coming through on this (gorgeous cranberries, raspberry, cherry & strawberry) which I like quite a bit; really nice focused flavor; a little hint of pepper on the back-end; overall, just a really well made wine; great structure; good attack; there's a bright grip to this wine; I like this wine; if this wine is anywhere less than $30 bones, it is a screaming deal; AFTER THE REVEAL: very focused, very refined, very well made; GV-91+
