Wine Advocate 90 points - Now that the acreage at Seven Springs is being increased, it was decided that fruit from its younger vines would be combined with that from older vines at Eola Springs to render 1,500 cases of an Evening Land 2011 Pinot Noir Eola-Amity Hills cuvee that will have annual successors ? at least until such time as fruit from the currently young vines on Seven Springs is judged worthy to bear that name. Blueberry and huckleberry inform an ingratiatingly polished palate, their tart edges and berry seed crunchiness vintage-typical, but the overall impression unusually soft and sweetly ripe for a 2011. A savory undertone of meat stock serves for saliva inducement in a lingering finish. Whereas the ?blue label? Willamette cuvee received around 20% new oak, this bottling saw only second-year and older barrels. I imagine that it will serve admirably through at least 2017.  (Oct 2013)

Wine Spectator 89 points - Lean, fresh and tight, with firm tannins around a narrow core of floral raspberry and white pepper flavors, persisting on the delicate finish. Best after 2014. 1,507 cases made. –HS  (Dec 15 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.
