2010 Evening Land La Source Seven Springs Vineyard Eola-Amity Hills Pinot Noir

13.0% alc., 971 cases, $60. 100% de-stemmed, 4-5-day cold soak in open top oak and cement fermenters. Aged 14 months in 25% new French Oak. Unfined and unfiltered. · Light garnet color in the glass. Marked reduction upon opening with aromas of matchstick and wood shed, leading to light flavors of red cherries and berries, oak vanillin and sulfur. The wine was then decanted and re-tasted later in the day and the following day. The reduction largely resolved with much more expressive aromatics and flavors with bright, fresh flavors of ripe dark berries. Good. Reviewed September 12, 2012
