Lange Estate Winery has been sourcing fruit from the Freedom Hill Vineyard since 1990 and began making its namesake single-vineyard Pinot Noir in 1996. The warm days and cool nights at this special site allow for complete fruit ripening while maintaining essential acid balance. The result is a structured and age-worthy wine.
The 2015 Freedom Hill Pinot Noir shows a nose of brambly earth, pomegranate, and cigar box spice. A hint of tobacco precedes a round, velvety palate showing blueberry compote, candied cherry, and vanilla- all balanced by fine tannins, elegant acidity and a finish that lingers. The 2015 vintage was another extraordinary, nearly ideal growing season with warm weather conditions that resulted in concentrated, balanced fruit.
