Wine Advocate 94 points - As with Pinot, there is no “Summum” bottling from selected rows or barrels this year, so Evening Land’s 2011 Chardonnay Seven Springs La Source reflects all of their best vines and lots. White peach and citrus dominate a luscious, creamy yet vibrantly juicy palate whose sense of richness and sheer density go beyond that of the ‘regular” Seven Springs bottling, yet without sacrificing clarity, or sheer juicy refreshment – though in buoyancy and mouthwatering salinity that ostensibly “lesser” wine holds the edge. There are more piquant elements incorporated here: peach kernel and lime pip, toasted nuts and stone, all of which add to the wine’s prodigious length as well as profundity. As my descriptions will have indicated, there isn’t a bit of overt oakiness to Evening Land’s Chardonnays. And interestingly, they all spend six months out of barrel on their lees in tank before bottling. (I could tell you about the 2012s, but I’ll leave you hanging and wait to report on them next year once they’ve had the aforementioned tank time and been bottled. And the 2012 reds don’t look bad, either!)  (Oct 2013)

Wine Spectator 94 points - Vibrant, expressive, focused and concentrated, dancing lightly with an array of toast- and mineral-accented peach, pear, lime and orange blossom flavors. Best from 2015 through 2019.—H.S. (Sep 25 2013)

"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.
