Editorial Reviews for Lange Pinot Noir Reserve
A hint of nutty smokiness greets the nose followed by a handful of dirty, freshly dug herbs. This smells powerful and savory with a slightly roasted base note of strawberries with a hint of pomegranate seed and orange pith. This enters the mouth with deceptive focus and then slowly unfurls across the palate with vibrant layers of mineral, wild blueberry, wild strawberry and slightly minty dried herb flavors. There's perfectly integrated acidity along with a base of slightly angular tannins that work as the perfect counterpoint to the sweet impression of fruit this delivers on the palate. On the back end, the wine regains focus, bringing back the herbal elements, bay leaf and sage from the nose. The finish whipsaws back to a remarkably focused presentation with taut red berry fruit that shows a refreshing hint of astringency and austere, mineral-laden length. 92pts

Amazing wine! Bought six bottles to start and plan on buying more. Opened the bottle, poured a glass and without even breathing the wine tasted amazing.
Our 2009 Reserve Pinot Noir is the result of extensive and dedicated barrel tasting by our winemakers, Don Lange and Jesse Lange. Comprised of the most complex and delicious wines in the cellar, this multi-vineyard Pinot noir is consistently crafted for lush fruit character, seamless balance, and elegance. A bright garnet hue, this wine expresses notes of strawberry jam, red cherry, black tea, dried rose petal, and a current of flint on the nose. An approachable, silky palate reveals lively red cherry, candied apple, pomegranate, and a hint of Amaretto. Finishing with soft barrel spice and mild tannins, the exceptionally balanced Pinot noir is a proud example of a finely-crafted Lange wine.
