Reviews and Ratings

Carolyn Hetke rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:

Welcoming aromas of smoke and leather lead on the nose. The palate is quite vibrant with generous red cherry and currant. Smooth and approachable with a long, slightly hot finish. Very enjoyable. Serve with cassoulet or duck confit. Tasted Nov 22, 2019 www.thewineloverskitchen.com
Linda Mertes WSET 2 rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:

From the Willamette Valley in Oregon, a medium-bodied Pinot Noir that has a strawberry nose leading to a white pepper spice on the palate. Although the minerality is evident (almost chalky) the finish is very smooth. Turkey, roast poultry and beef would match well.
From the Willamette Valley wine region, Lange Classique Pinot Noir 2016 is a juicy, lush, full-bodied Pinot Noir with ripe red berry, bright cherry, blue florals, minty herb and cake spice flavours. Tannins are velvety. - Community Wine Reviews
