2019 La Source Pinot Noir
La Source Pinot Noir is the foundation of all that we do here at Evening Land Vineyards. Inspired by the great wines of Burgundy, the vines destined for La Source Pinot Noir come from Dijon clones rooted in shallow, rocky soils at the summit of Seven Springs. Strong ocean winds slow the ripening process and force the vines to push deeper into the earth. These challenging conditions yield fruit of the highest quality.
A first taste offers notes of crisp red fruit, damp soil, violets, and button mushroom before giving way to a lively and lingering finish, marked by prominent-yet-approachable tannins. It’s no surprise that forward-thinking Burgundy lovers (and Burgundians themselves) took notice of Oregon’s potential for exceptional Pinot Noir.
