Lange Pinot Noir Reserve 2006

Winemaker's Notes:

Father/Son winemakers Don Lange and Jesse Lange choose among the finest barrels of the vintage to bring you the Reserve Pinot Noir. Long-standing relationships with some of the most renowned vineyard sites in the Willamette Valley guarantee this 2006 “vintners’ cuvee” is an outstanding representation of what Oregon had to offer. Its sparkling ruby red shade hints at a vintage ripe with red fruit characteristics delivered in a flashy nose that shows bing cherry, crushed raspberry and sage. The juicy, mouth-filling palate shows candied apple, dried cherry, and red currant laced with hints of black tea. Finishing with savory spice and tremendous length, this exceptionally balanced Pinot Noir is a proud example of a finely crafted Lange wine.

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

Pre-vertical tasting wine, to get us in the groove. Nice fruit, dark color, sweet, leathery nose. Drinking very well right now. Not sure on QPR, but most liked this wine a lot.
