    Winemaker's Notes:

    #79 Wine Spectator Top 100 of 2012

    Deep garnet in color with a brilliant edge, the nose is voluptuous and broad with smoky notes at first glance that dissipate quickly into black cherry and raspberries, with lavender and rosemary herbal notes and a hint of licorice. The palate is surprisingly leaner on the attack, but broadens quickly with fine and round tannins, as the flamboyant fruit flavors explode on the palate. The finish is precise and direct, sustained by mineral notes and lingering fruit flavors in the style that is so classic of the Seven Springs Vineyard.

    Critical Acclaim:

    A richly detailed riot of flavors, this outstanding Pinot Noir offers notes of lavender and rosemary on the nose and flavors of strawberry and raspberry on the palate, with hints of beetroot, clean earth and anise. The finish adds a lingering, resonant flavor of pastis.

    Light and silky, this is beguiling for the way it deftly plays its polished red berry and black cherry fruit against glints of mineral and white pepper. The finish brings it all together seamlessly.

    Vivid red. Intense, floral-accented aromas of raspberry and cherry, with hints of blood orange, cola and tobacco adding complexity. Offers an array of intense red fruit preserve flavors lifted by zesty acidity. The floral qualities come back on the finish, which lingers with impressive tenacity. This wine improves quite a bit with a brief decanting.

    International Wine Cellar

    Tart cranberry, cherry, and red currant dominate the youthfully bright, brash Evening Land 2010 Pinot Noir Seven Springs Vineyard, whose further evocations of sassafras, black pepper, berry seeds and fruit pits emphasize the invigorating side of a wine that nevertheless shows ample sense of body (like its immediate stable mates, at just 13% alcohol) and largely makes up for any current lack of nuance simply through its sheer vivacity and persistent primary juiciness. This generic Seven Springs bottling – rendered in slightly higher volume than the corresponding La Source – ought to be not only well worth following but likely to take on some richness as well as further complexity over the next half dozen or more years.
