Food Pairings for Argyle Pinot Noir
Tasted at UNLVino 4/10/10
A less fruity Pinot with a bit of acidity. Lots of tart cherry flavor here. Would be nice with food.
I love this wine!
if you dont let this wine breathe you wont enjoy it. This wine was double fermented so it comes on tannic but after it breathe the berries come out to play and the depth adds a wonderful finish...malolactic characters. highly recommend. delicious !!!! i am not a meat eater...this red is versatile...I love it with spicey food....
External Reviews for Argyle Pinot Noir
Good varietal character, with smoky cherry, orange peel, cherry and vanilla. Supple, creamy and sweet with vanilla and spice. Pleasant, with nice complexity.
Fresh, lively, and easygoing, this dark ruby-colored wine offers brambleberries, black cherries, and juicy pit fruit flavors.
Light red. Spicy raspberry and cherry on the nose, with a light kiss of bitter chocolate adding complexity. Smooth red fruit flavors become chewier with air, picking up dusty tannins and finishing with solid grip and good persistence.
Light and easygoing, with a real transparency to its pretty cherry, currant and guava flavors, mingling effectively with cream and delicate spice notes. This just doesn't quit on the finish. Drink now through 2015.
For those of you looking for a refreshing, lighter-bodied Pinot Noir, look no further. Argyle consistently produced some of Oregon's finest Pinots and it is no wonder why they have such a loyal following. This 2003 bursts with ripe cherry and strawberry flavors that expertly balances the difficult line between sweet and tart, with a smooth transition into a long, satiny finish.
An early release is often good for Oregon Pinot, bringing out the young varietal flavors with bracing freshness. Here an extended maceration, both before and after fermentation, gives it a nice mix of cherry/grapy fruit with a good tannic structure. Comes on like a cru Beaujolais, with surprising weight and length for such a young wine.
Light, bright and refreshing, with nice, pure dark berry and a hint of smoke mingling on the lively finish. Drink now through 2008.
