One of Oregon's greatest sites for Pinot Noir, La Source comes from the summit of Seven Springs. Rocky soils and daily wind challenge the vines. These adverse conditions result in the very best wine at Evening Land. Pale to medium ruby in color, the 2015 Pinot Noir la Source Seven Springs Vineyard has a lovely savory nose with aromas of charcuterie, toasted cardamom, forest floor, potpourri, perfume and bramble berry. Medium-bodied, it has a great silky texture opening to tart wild blackberries, cracked pink peppercorn and savory/meaty touches, with a firm frame of grainy tannins and plenty of freshness, finishing long with mineral accents.
