Winemaker's Notes:

Our Willamette Valley Pinot Noir is an assemblage of all our North Willamette vineyard sites, delivering a true reflection of the finest viticultural practices and dedicated winemaking. In our true "classique" style, this wine is approachable and fruit-forward upon release.

Tantalizing aromas of candied cherry, crushed raspberry, and cola play over a current of black licorice and refined tannins.

About Lange Winery:

In 1987, Don and Wendy Lange left California and followed their hearts to Oregon's North Willamette Valley. Fueled by a passion for Pinot Noir and a love of the land, they founded their winery on 30 acres in the Red Hills above Dundee. Yamhill County, where Lange Winery is located, is home to most of Oregon's vineyards and wineries. It's no coincidence that some of the best examples of Pinot Noir in the world come from this area. The Lange's first vintage consisted of the three varietals they embrace today: Pinot Noir, Pinot Gris, and Chardonnay. Lange Winery is the first among a handful of producers to offer two styles of Pinot Gris, having pioneered a barrel fermented version of the popular varietal with their premier vintage back in 1987.
