Oregon Pinot Noir and Pinot Gris

WOW! The new 2008 Lange Estate Willamette Valley Pinot Noir has arrived to Texas. When's the last time you've opened a PHENOMENAL Pinot Noir that's priced under $25?

Robert Parker had this to say: This Pinot Noir is always pretty and approachable upon release, and pairs well with all manner of cuisine.
Robert Parker rated 90. Truly a great value! "The 2008 Pinot Noir Willamette Valley provides an early look at just how good this vintage is. Very expressive aromatically with aromas of cherry, raspberry, and rose petal, on the palate this medium-bodied wine has layered succulent fruit, superb balance, and a lengthy, fruit-filled finish. It has enough structure to evolve for several years but will provide plenty of immediate gratification." 90 Points & Best Value. - Robert Parker, August 2009

A perfect bottle to roll into right after some serious spring-weather patio sipping with their 2008 Pinot Gris as well! Ask your favorite wine shop for the beautiful wines of
Lange Estate
Cheers - Ali
