Lange Pinot Noir Reserve 2005

Winemaker's Notes:

Winemakers Don Lange and Jesse Lange specially select the barrels for this never-before-bottled blend from the vineyards of the Eola Hills AVA in Oregon. An outstanding representation of what the appellation and the vintage had to offer, the Eola Reserve is sourced primarily from the renowned Temperance Hill vineyard near Salem. With an intense garnet hue and long, lush finish, every component of this top-tier wine is beautifully integrated. A seductive nose displays hints of black plum, coffee and chocolate while the palate shows darker fruit characteristics of raspberry, currant, and black cherry. Indicative of the 2005 vintage, the Eola Reserve has ample weight in the mid-palate and a succulent finish laced with slate and earth. It’s guaranteed to be a crowd-pleaser.

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
