A past Wine Access story about 2014 Lange Winery Pinot Noir Three Hills Cuvee Willamette Valley

30% off 96pt Vintage, the Greatest Pinot Noir Vintage Willamette Valley has Ever Seen?

Taking Home Top Honors

This prestige cuvee from the outstanding Lange Estate has received Wine & Spirit’s Award for “Year’s Best U.S. Pinot Noir.”  The news hit us like we imagine it’ll strike the legions of Lange loyalists among Wine Access’s clients — a pleasant surprise, not a shock. After all, the 2014 “Three Hills” features world-class fruit from arguably the greatest Pinot Noir vintage the Willamette Valley has ever seen (rated 96 points by Wine Spectator), crafted by Jesse Lange, one of Oregon’s most talented young winemakers. This incredibly seductive, wildly aromatic, showstopping Pinot retails for $50, but is available today on Wine Access for $34.99, thanks to our longstanding relationship with Lange.

Jesse and his father Don Lange hatched the idea behind the Three Hills Cuvée Pinot Noir in 1997, to put what they’d learned over a decade’s worth of harvests into a blend of Lange’s three coveted hillside vineyards. Twenty years later, Jesse is thrilled by the “blended terroir” that accounts for this 2014’s aromatic, rose-petal nose and juicy palate. “Freedom Hill brings the brooding, black-fruited power,” Jesse told us. “Yamhill brings the sweeter, plush red fruits and volume for mouthfeel, and the Lange Estate (Dundee Hills) brings the minerality, spice, and head-filling aromatics.”

In the year that some are calling “the vintage of a lifetime,” the three sites yielded a bright, well-balanced offering whose “savory finish” and “excellent structure” impressed James Suckling to the tune of 92 points. Wine & Spirits went further, calling this “clean and snappy” 2014 Three Hills with an “exuberant fruit expression” the “Year’s Best U.S. Pinot Noir.”

With accolades like these, $50 on release hardly seems steep. At $34.99, this is a phenomenal value. Jesse expects it to “age wonderfully for twenty years, easypeasy.” Considerably less easy, for us and our fellow Wine Access Lange loyalists, will be exerting the patience and discipline necessary to keep it corked that long.
