Food Pairings for Lange Estate Winery Pinot Noir "Freedom Hill Vineyard"
Lange Estate Winery has been sourcing fruit from the Freedom Hill Vineyard since 1990 and began making its namesake single-vineyard Pinot noir in 1996. Typically, fruit from this vineyard produces structured wines with higher acidity and a more prominent tannin profile, making it one of our most ageable wines. The 2005 Freedom Hill Vineyard Pinot noir is a masculine expression of the grape with extraordinary depth. A distinct nose displays dark, brooding fruit, crushed peppercorns and sage. The palate shows ripe blackberry, blueberry, anise, tobacco, and toast all balanced by a well-integrated tannin structure and elegant acidity. With a finish that lingers and lingers, this wine speaks volumes of both the vineyard and the winemakers.
