Lange Pinot Noir Three Hills Cuvee Hrzn 2007

Winemaker's Notes:

The Three Hills Cuvee Pinot noir is a blend of our “terroir series” Pinot noirs: Lange Estate Vineyard, Freedom Hill Vineyard, and Yamhill Vineyards. Each site is a distinctive expression of its relative terroir with differing soil types, elevations, and clonal selections. In combination, these vineyards lend specific and unique characteristics to a masterfully integrated blend crafted by winemakers Don Lange and Jesse Lange. The 2007 is a deep garnet hue, with an enticing nose of black raspberry, pomegranate, sage, and potpourri spice. A clean, soft, and lively palate bursts with black cherry compote, dried strawberry, bergamot, clove, and cinnamon. Persistent on the finish and balanced by silky, superfine tannins, this wine is a classic “drink-now-or-hold-for-a-decade” Pinot noir.

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
