Winemaker Notes 2013 La Source Pinot Noir comes from the old vines planted at the highest part of the hill, where the vines have the most exposure to the wind and where the soils are their shallowest. The Seven Springs Vineyard, farmed biodynamically and organically since 2007, is planted on iron-rich, volcanic soil, with basalt mother rocks. The biodynamic farming of the vineyard showed its worth when the rains of 2013 threatened the vintage, as this method gave the pinot noir a thick exterior and made it resilient to the harmful weather. Evening Land Pinot Noirs are hand-picked, hand-sorted, and destemmed, then treated to a 4-5 day cold soak in open-top oak and concrete fermenters before fermentation begins naturally from indigenous yeasts. Twice daily, gentle punchdowns throughout fermentation encourage soft extraction of tannins. Aging of this wine occurred in 30% new French oak barrels for 16 months, which preserves the elegance of the wine. Critical Acclaim WS93Wine Spectator Fresh and inviting, open-textured and appealing, with cherry, floral and mineral flavors gliding smoothly into a harmonious finish. Has terrific presence, depth and persistence. Drink now through 2021. 850 cases made.
