Wine Advocate 91 points - The 2009 Pinot Noir La Source Seven Springs Vineyard was sourced from a different set of parcels and clones but was otherwise treated identically to its siblings. It has much to recommend it; spicy flavors, impeccable balance, and superb concentration and length for the vintage but is not obviously better or much different than the Estate cuvee, at least to this taster.  (Oct 2011)

Wine Spectator 92 points - Light and tangy, with hints of blueberry and plum behind the raspberry and slate flavors up front, lingering nicely on the delicate finish. Drink now through 2019. 422 cases made. –HS  (Dec 15 2011)

"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.
