Lange Pinot Noir Freedom Hill Vineyard 2005

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 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.

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
