LANGE Pinot Noir, Willamette Valley ‘Reserve’ 2021

I’m falling in love with the 2021 Pinot Noirs from Willamette Valley. After a few more difficult vintages, the 2021s are exploding out of the gate and are surprisingly ready to drink now. It will be interesting to see how these evolve over time. Visually this wine is stunning with a dark ruby-purple core and neon pink rim. Very well balanced on the nose and on the palate, it gifts notes of wild huckleberry, black cherry, tobacco leaf, mint chocolate, and just a smooch of graphite. The palate is perfectly balanced with the red and blue fruit, savory earthiness, silky tannins, and a lovely mouthwatering finish. Enjoy this one over the next decade.
