Lange Estate Winery Pinot Noir "Lange Estate Vineyard" 2006

Winemaker's Notes:

This single-vineyard wine showcases the Lange Estate Vineyard in the Dundee Hills AVA of Oregon. Native, mineral-rich Jory soil is one of many essential elements that comprise the ideal growing conditions for Pinot noir in this unique region. The 2006 vintage produced wines with mouth-watering, juicy red fruit and a lush, opulent mid-palate. A glistening shade of ruby red previews the intensity of this ripe, medium-bodied wine. The nose displays hints of sun-ripened strawberry, crushed raspberry, cardamom and clove while the expansive palate shows wild cherry, candied raspberry and the characteristic slate component indicative of Jory soils. With a long, lingering finish, this attention-grabbing Pinot noir represents the best of what Lange has to offer.

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

2006 Reserve. More a California style Pinot than a typical big, extracted Willamette Valley style pinot. Brighter with Cherry high notes and an unusual minerality that pairs well with food. Had bottles on consecutive days it's an interesting wine
