Our Reserve series wines have a higher percentage of fruit from our premier vineyard sites. These selections, made barrel by barrel, were carefully chosen over time and include fruit from Freedom Hill, Mistletoe, Durant, Yamhill, Hirschy, Madrona Hill, and our own Lange Estate vineyards.
By blending barrels from multiple vineyards, father and son winemaking duo, Don and Jesse Lange, have translated the vintage into a single cuvée while showcasing all the versatility and range pinot noir is capable of expressing. A hallmark of this series is the smoothly honed tannins that lend shape to a wine with fantastic richness, power, and nuance.

“A barrel selection from several top sites the Langes work with, Freedom Hill, Mistletoe, Durant, Yamhill, Hirschy, Madrona Hill, and the Lange Estate Vineyard. This is a wine built to endure, only revealing itself slightly now. Dusty mint aromatics speak first, followed quickly by blue fruit accents of wild mountain berries. The palate shows a rich concentration of blue and black fruits, tangy blackberries and huckleberries with mint. Turned earth, pine bough and a persistent note of wintergreen throughout. Black tea leaves and a lifted spice character take you to a very persistent finish. Drinking Window 2024-2039.“ - Clive Pursehouse

The stunning 2022 Reserve Pinot Noir by winemaker Jesse Lange excites me about what to expect for the vintage. A neon ruby core with a bluish rim in the glass, it pops with crushed boysenberry, black cherry, Earl Gray tea, fresh lavender flowers, and cedary herbs that spill from the glass. Tannins are smooth on the medium-bodied palate while delivering a finish that goes on for minutes. Better in 2024.

The 2022 Pinot Noir Reserve blossoms with a bouquet of wild berries and florals. This is lifted in feel with silky textures and polished red and blue fruits underscored by tactile mineral tones. Suggestions of lavender candies and violet inner florals linger long as the 2022 leaves subtly grippy tannins and slowly fading hints of sour citrus. - By Eric Guido on January 2024. Drinking Window 2024 - 2030.

The outstanding 2022 Lange ‘Reserve’ Pinot Noir is nicely textured and weighted even so young. A pure core of red fruits greets you with stony soils. Mandarin orange zest and shades of baking spices. Complex and delicious, this is drinking beautifully right now. Drink 2023-2033.

Spicy and lifted, the 2022 Pinot Noir Reserve pours a jeweled ruby hue and is forward with aromas of medicinal herbs, black cherry preserve, and blood orange. Full-bodied and plush on the palate, it offers a velvety texture, with its characteristic floral perfume shining all the way through the palate, and has wonderful purity of its fruit on a long finish, with sweet tannins. It’s another super-charming wine now but will have a large drinking window as it shed its baby fat and reveals its more savory and umami tones. Drink 2023-2033.
