2012 Lange Yamhill-Carlton Assemblage Willamette Valley Pinot Noir

13.9% alc., 200 cases, $70, screwcap. Sourced from vineyards with Willakenzie soils. · Dark reddish purple hue in the glass. Shy, but pleasant scents of ripe dark fruits. Full-bodied attack of dark berries with length and soothing flavor. The tannins are well matched and there is a good cut of underlying acidity. The finish is plush with boysenberry fruit. The nose was still shy the following day from a previously opened and recorked bottle indicating this wine needs more time in bottle. Score: 91. Reviewed January 27, 2015
