Our three Estate vineyards are located in the Northern Dundee Hills appellation. The AVA is perhaps best known for its rust-red volcanic soils formed by Columbia River Basalts more than 14 million years ago. These rich clay-loam soils, predominantly Jory and Nekia, are deep and well drained. Combined, all three vineyard sites total 60 acres under vine and comprise more than 80 individual vineyard blocks. Planting began in 1988 with Pommard and Wädenswil. Today, the oldest vines in the vineyard are now reaching their zenith at 34+ years of age, and they express terroir-driven power and finesse.
Our 2021 Estate Pinot Noir displays an exuberant nose of strawberry and black raspberry interlaced with lavender, crushed stone, cardamom, and bergamot. It’s a seamless wine, with gathering energy on the palate that gives rise to a core of blue and black fruit along with a lively flourish of minerality and sweet tobacco on the finish.

This is so attractive and fresh with dark cherries, crushed blueberries, hints of violets, dried pomegranate skins and crushed stones. Delicate and silky on the palate with polished, refined tannins and pure red and blue fruit character, seasoned with some spicy herbs. Textured and lingering. Drink or hold.

A beauty with some nice aging potential, the 2022 ‘Estate’ Pinot Noir by Lange is a great showing from this vintage. Smooth and supple once on the mouth, light tannins frame a beautiful core of red cherry and guava fruits alongside suggestions of salty soils and blood orange zest. This finishes very long as this concentrated, silky Pinot Noir is only just stating to come into its own. Drink 2023-2035

This is a delicious example of what Dundee Hills has to offer. The aromas show notes of dark fruit, cola, herb, and flower. Soft, fuller-bodied dark fruit and black tea flavors follow. Coffee notes accent the finish. It’s a classic representation of the appellation – power and sophistication all wrapped into one. 13.5% alcohol. 575 cases produced. TCA-free micro-agglomerated cork.
