Wine Advocate 91 points - The 2010 Pinot Noir Spanish Springs (from a site in Edna Valley) is a gorgeous wine laced with expressive plums, dark red cherries and spices, all supported by clean veins of minerality. This juicy, fruit-forward Pinot needs to be enjoyed over the next few years. Winemaker Sashi Moorman used 20% whole clusters here. This is a lovely showing. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2016. (Aug 2012)

Wine maker notes
The Spanish Springs Pinot Noir is exuberant with pronounced aromas of cranberries, orange rind, ginger and wild mint. The mouth-feel is supple, but refreshing and the flavors are densely focused on summer fruits and wild berries. This wine represents a great expression of coastal California style Pinot Noir - the marriage of complexity and richness; alcohol and acidity; accessibility and aging potential.

"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. The opportunity to acquire great vineyard sites in three diverse climates gave us a rare opportunity to explore the sensitivity of pinot noir and chardonnay as it thrives in the red volcanic dirt of Oregon, the fog wrapped ridges of Sonoma and the windswept mountains of decomposed sea shells of the Santa Rita Hills. Soil and climate diversity make their mark on Evening Land wines, creating those delicious differences that are the hallmark of fine pinot noir and chardonnay.
