Description

The Willamette Valley in Oregon is often compared to Burgundy, for the challenging growing conditions, varietals planted, and the quality-minded smaller-scale producers that have chosen to work here. It is therefore not surprising that super sommelier Raj Parr and winemaker Sashi Moorman, who bonded over their love for elegant European wines, decided to base their second joint venture here. The Evening Land estate, whose vineyard is known as ‘Seven Springs’ is planted overwhelmingly to Pinot Noir, followed by Chardonnay, and Gamay. The oldest own-rooted blocks of Pinot Noir and Chardonnay are a testament to, and a daily reminder of, Oregon’s incredible winemaking history. Benchmark Oregon producers have long sourced fruit from Seven Springs and the wines from this vineyard are the most decorated and award-winning Oregon wines.

Inspired by the great wines of Burgundy, the vines destined for La Source Pinot Noir come from Dijon clones rooted in shallow, rocky soils at the summit of Seven Springs. Strong ocean winds slow the ripening process and force the vines to push deeper into the earth. These challenging conditions yield the fruit of the highest quality.

A first taste offers notes of crisp red fruit, damp soil, violets, and button mushroom before giving way to a lively and lingering finish, marked by prominent-yet-approachable tannins. It’s no surprise that forward-thinking Burgundy lovers (and Burgundians themselves) took notice of Oregon’s potential for exceptional Pinot Noir.
