2011 Evening Land Spanish Springs Vineyard Edna Valley Pinot Noir

13.0% alc., $20. · Dark reddish purple color in the glass. The nose opens slowly in the glass to reveal aromas of dark stone fruits, oak and herb garden. Luscious essence of sweet black cherries with a hint of cassis, anise, oak and savory herbs. The velvety mouthfeel is welcoming and the firm, dry tannins are well managed. The wine finishes on a high note with a good cut of acidity. Score: 90. Reviewed July 19, 2014
