The Pinot Noirs from this new project from Evening Land founders Larry Stone and Dominique Lafon are intellectually challenging and palate-stretching in their austerity. Evoking rhubarb and citrus on the nose, this wine emphasizes citrus on the palate, particularly grapefruit, along with refreshing minerality. Like all the winery's Pinots, it rewards extended aeration and your full attention.
