Argyle Pinot Noir Reserve 2007
90 points Jay Miller (Wine Advocate): The 2007 Pinot Noir Willamette Valley is medium ruby- colored with an enticing bouquet of toast, cinnamon, rose petal, cherry, and cranberry. Sweet and seamless on the palate, this elegant effort has a bit of structure, excellent con- centration, and a lengthy, fruit-filled finish. Drink it over the next 6 years. (Oct 2009)
Lots of red berry flavors (strawberry) on the nose and palate. Very smooth. Good Pinot!
This is a light bodied pinot noir that is very elegant. I was impressed.
This is a really nice Oregon Pinot Noir. It has that silky texture just like the label says.
External Reviews for Argyle Pinot Noir Reserve
Light, bright and refreshing, with nice, pure dark berry and a hint of smoke mingling on the lively finish. Drink now through 2008.
The lithe, lissome style has lovely currant, plum and subtle spice flavors, real presence and a finish that lets the flavors linger without intruding. Drink now through 2008.
Fresh, lively, and easygoing, this dark ruby-colored wine offers brambleberries, black cherries, and juicy pit fruit flavors.
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.
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.
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.
A great value and one of the easiest-to-find wines from Oregon, this screw-capped lovely is smooth and round, seductively plush in texture but not overwhelming in flavor. It keeps its musky cherry, plum and tobacco flavors in harmony as they sail into the long finish. Drink now through 2008.
