Lange Pinot Noir Reserve 2006
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.
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.
