Domaine Trouvere Syrah 2008

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

This is very herbal at first, a regular cupboard of dried herbs, softly sweet and aromatic with accents of cracked pepper, cocoa, black cherry, plum and date. Rich and soft in the mouth with lovely freshness to the flavors, all wild berry, wood spiced and a touch earthy/herbal, but this lacks focus. The acidity is rather soft and the tannins absent on the palate, though wood tannins join lightly jammy black cherry fruit on the backend and on to the modest, black fruited and spiced finish. 86pts

Driven by a passion for Pinot Noir and a love of the land, Don and Wendy Lange founded their winery in the Dundee Hills of Oregon's northern Willamette Valley. The year 1987 marked the Lange’s first vintage and consisted of the three varietals they embrace today: Pinot Noir, Pinot Gris, and Chardonnay. The Langes' mission is to produce consistent, complex, balanced wines that express terroir and dedicated stewardship. Known for his even hand, Winemaker Don Lange crafts beautifully balanced wines from estate fruit, sustainably and organically farmed in the famed red Jory soil of the prestigious Dundee Hills appellation. To further supplement their 15,000 case production, the Langes purchase additional fruit from renowned vineyards in the surrounding area. Long-standing relationships with these talented growers have helped the winery establish a well-deserved reputation for consistency and complexity in the wines. In addition to Pinot Gris and Chardonnay, Don bottles at least six different Pinot Noirs, paying meticulous attention to each lot of wine. While guiding its journey through a careful barrel regime, he blends as he sees fit or bottles his favorites as single-vineyard offerings. Don is joined by his son Jesse in these endeavors; thus the Lange Estate legacy continues with Jesse's expert contributions in both the cellar and the vineyard. Read less
