2008 Lange Estate Winery & Vineyards Lange Estate Vineyard Dundee Hills Willamette Valley Pinot Noir

13.5% alc.. · Moderately dark reddish purple color in the glass. Aromas of black cherry pie glaze, boysenberry jam, conifer and dried herbs lead to a rich mouthful of sweet darker cherry and purple berry fruits. Still young, with somewhat daunting oak and tannin on the fruit-filled finish. When tasted the following day from a previously opened and re-corked bottle, the fruit was more apparent and pleasing and the wine was slightly more supple. Hold mid to long term in the cellar. Score: 90-91. Reviewed February 8, 2015
