External Reviews for Argyle Reserve Pinot Noir
Light and tangy, brimming with red cherry, raspberry and sweet spice aromas and flavors, nicely framed with a subtle touch of oak. Has tremendous appeal, although the finish gets a bit sharp. Drink now through 2010.
The 2002 vintage is Oregonrsquo;s best in memory and provided several top-notch Pinot Noir bottlings. For this reserve, Argyle winemaker Rollin Soles used fruit from three different vineyards in the Dundee and Eola hills, aged the wine in French oak for just over a year and bottled it unfiltered.
This is a massive wine from a massively warm vintage. The liquid even looks more viscous than wine when poured into a glass! The aroma is deep toned and concentrated. Look for plum jam, black cherry extract, a hint of cedar smoke, and dark chocolate-mint spices. The flavor is mouth-filling and packed with plum sauce-black cherry stuffed with chocolate. See if you can find the plum pudding and alder wood smoke character. The texture is super-juicy all the way through to a very long lasting sweetness with sanded tannin memory.
Ripe and generous, with distinctive violet and rose petal overtones to the cherry and spice flavors, lingering with fine texture. Needs time to settle in. Twenty percent of the wine will be bottled under screw cap. Best from 2007 through 2012.
This Willamette Valley Pinot Noir is one of the biggest and richest in some time. Much of our prized 'Prestige' vineyard blocks went into the blend for this wine. Black Cherry, Marion berry, and spice aromas are concentrated around a tight mineral/earth/tar center. The flavors are sweet, big fruited, and built up with ripe, gripping tannin structure. The finish is what we all look for in Pinot Noir, long sweet with fruit and floral hints. This wine despite its value-price category will age well in to the first decade of the 2000's.
