2017 Pinot Noir Reserve
Our Reserve Pinot Noir is a cuvée that represents the finest barrels in our cellar without any self-imposed rules like site, clone, rootstock, or soil type. Assembled from fruit sourced from our long-time vineyard partners including Freedom Hill, Temperance Hill, Mistletoe, Durant and our own Lange Estate vineyards, this multi-vineyard, multi-dimensional Pinot is crafted to express lush fruit character, seamless balance, and textural elegance. Attractive out of the gate, with enough structure develop for another five years—drink it as a weeknight libation, or share it with family and friends.
2017 PINOT NOIR RESERVE
With a relatively warm 2017 vintage, we are able to deliver fruit with a great balance of sugar and acid, with lower alcohol levels and abundant tannins. The 2017 Reserve Pinot Noir expresses notes redolent of black cherries, marionberries, cinnamon, clove and saddle leather in the bouquet. Juicy tannins frame hints of wood smoke, rosemary, and Oregon strawberries followed by a long, resonant finish.
