A touch toasty on the nose with wood spice and blackberry fruit coming together over a lightly mineral, rusty base. This takes on a sweet, spiced pie-filling tone with air, full of warm blueberries and cherries. Soft and broad on entry, a touch of astringent tannins up front supporting rich mixed berry fruit on the mid-palate, with a balsam top note. Huge fruit rules the finish with great freshness and a seamless nature that gives this the impression of lightness. The mineral notes return on the finish, which shows complex spice tones over its long length. 93pts

Wow, this is aromatically intense and complex with huge spice notes joined by briary pipe notes, deep floral sweetness, blueberry tobacco leaf, black tea, earth and spice -- it just keeps growing in the glass. Big on entry with huge fruit, but still remaining very fresh with lots of soft tannins contributing some weight yet this remains crisp and transparent. There’s a slight pomegranate seed edge to the mid-palate, which adds nice contrast to the gorgeous red fruits that are firm and focused from start to finish here. This tightens up nicely on the long finish and ends with layered notes of spice, earth and pure, sweet fruit. 93pts

Winemaker's Notes:

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 2008 Freedom Hill Vineyard Pinot noir is a full-bodied expression of the grape with extraordinary depth. A distinct nose displays rich, brooding fruit -- blackberry and candied dark cherry -- as well as clean barrel spice, anise, and a hint of eucalyptus. The round, velvety palate shows blackberry, dark cherry, Chambord, tobacco leaf, and spice, 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.

Tasting Notes:

RARE & VERY LIMITED! Located in Yamhill, Oregon in the North Willamette Valley, Yamhill Vineyards sits at an elevation of 400 feet on Willakenzie soil. This site produces the pretty, opulent fruit for this equally pretty wine. The Pinot Noir "Yamhill Vineyards" is our smallest-production single-vineyard wine, and we're pleased to release it to the public for the first time in two vintages. A sparkling ruby hue previews a nose of delicate tea rose, orange spice tea, and dusty strawberry. The soft yet bright palate displays raspberry coulis, bing cherry, and a hint of apricot -- dusted with anise, cardamom, and cocoa-like tannins. In all, this feminine and seductive wine is sure to demand your full attention when in your glass!
