Shows vibrancy and precision, with svelte cherry and cranberry flavors highlighted by orange peel and cardamom as this zips toward a lively, zesty finish. Drink now through 2030.

The 2021 Yamhill-Carlton Pinot from Lange boasts a beautiful medium neon ruby core with a blueish rim in the glass. Even though this wine is very young, it is ready to drink and gifts outstanding notes of crushed red cherry, macerated black raspberry preserve, graphite, potpourri, dried sage, and just a smooch of iodine. Mouthwatering acidity and rounded tannins merge perfectly with a lengthy red fruit and herbal finish. Highly recommended. 2023-2033

The aromas draw you into the glass, with notes of black tea, flower, plum, and spice. The flavors are achingly pure and generous, along with a pleasing mouthfeel and plenty of intensity. It’s flat out gorgeous, with detail and sophistication as well as depth and generosity. More, please. 13.5% alcohol. 450 cases produced. Screwcap.

This beautiful 2021 Pinot Noir comes fro several vineyards in the Yamhill-Carlton AVA. Once on the nose he takes on layers of ripe guava and boysenberry alongside freshly tilled soils and suggestions of roasted hazelnut that all meld in the glass. The palate is very polished and fresh with good concentration and underlying tension. Delicious to consume now, enjoy over the next decade. Drink 2023-2033

This assemblage blends the fruit of two vineyards, Yamhill and Hirschy, and leads with the scent of smoked tea and wild blackberries. It’s brambly, with a red-fruited core, mildly tannic but well-behaved in a berry-skin finish.
