"The 2009 Pinot Noir Blue Label was sourced from four estate parcels, fermented with native yeasts and aged in 25% new French oak for 11 months. It offers up an alluring bouquet of balsam wood, lilacs, spice box, black cherry, and black raspberry. This leads to a firm, savory, elegant, velvety textured wine that will provide enjoyment over the next 7-8 years."
"The 2009 California Blue Label Pinot Noir is sourced from three of California's best AVA's: Santa Rita Hills, Edna Valley, and Sonoma Coast. The richness from the Santa Hills Cuvee is balanced perfectly by the bright, acid driven cuvees from the Edna Valley and the supple fruit-forward wines from the Sonoma Coast. This wine was entirely produced, cellared and bottled by Evening Land. Aromas of fresh red fruits and savory herbs lead to flavors of cranberry, pomegranate, and Bing cherries." -Winery
"'The Evening Land' has long been a symbol of the dream quest for the perfect garden. From ancient Greek myth to now, the search for The Evening Land is synonymous with adventure and romance that inevitably leads to the extremes of America's West Coast. Evening Land Vineyards has brought together a collection of pinot noir and chardonnay vineyards in the three great growing regions of the American West. From the Eola Hills in Oregon's Willamette Valley, to the true Sonoma Coast in the town of Occidental, California and ending on the western lip of Santa Barbara County's Santa Rita Hills, Evening Land organically farms over 120 acres of heritage vineyards that produce 13 Estate wines imbued with this unique spirit of place. An orchestrated mix of old vine own rooted Oregon and California heritage clones, cuttings from the great established pinot noir and chardonnay vineyards of Burgundy and an experimental block of pinot noir grown from seed, the Vineyards of the Evening Land present a vivid view of Burgundy's legendary grapes raised in the amazing diversity of America's climate and soil." -Winery
"Farming and winemaking techniques in each of the Evening Land Vineyards are deployed to align the wines closely with each of the individual and unique terroirs. In Oregon, consulting winemaker Dominique Lafon leads winemaker Isabelle Meunier and her winery and vineyard team employing his unique vision springing from his 25 years as the winemaker at one of Burgundy's legendary Estates. Shaped by these Burgundian traditions, Sashi Moorman leads his team in the winery and the vineyards to produce elegant and rich wines from both Sonoma and Santa Rita." -Winery
