La Source Pinot Noir | Evening Land

Evening Land is based around a special vineyard in the Eola-Amity Hills AVA, established in 1984 under the direction of Burgundian legend Dominique Lafon. The Dijon clones which produce this wine are at the top of the vineyard where they are exposed to┬áPacific breezes via the Van Duzer Gap. The combination of these conditions give a focused, complex and mineral driven wine – dare we say it a benchmark Oregon Pinot.
