Enjoyed an earlier vintage at a restaurant in Oregon. Easy and smooth, if a bit thin. Considering this as an additional "house wine", with its reasonable price point.

The 2008 Pinot Noir Williamette Valley, medium ruby red, it gives up an enticing nose of cedar, spice box, rose petals, cherry, and raspberry. This is followed by a medium-bodied, ripe, vibrant offering with ample spicy red fruit flavors, good volume and intensity, and a medium-long finish. Drink it over the next 4ndash;6 years. Visiting with Rollin Sole, the head man at Argyle, is always a great learning experience.

Winemaker's notes:2009 was all about farming to balance Mother Nature’s surprises. Argyle's farming culture got the crop level right on. We stripped leaves after the burning sun of August and in time

Almost 15,000 cases are made of this sturdy, solid Willamette Valley Pinot Noir. Itrsquo;s got more muscle and weight than the cheaper stuff from elsewhere, though not the textural interest and nuance of many single vineyard bottlings. So it falls right in the middle, and is priced accordingly, delivering red fruits, hints of herb, light toast and coffee-flavored tannins.

Winemaker Notes - The aroma is surprisingly robust. Look for dark fruit aromatics like black berry, black cherry with nice Spice Route spicy complexity. The flavor is rich and robust as well. Black cherry folds nicely into lovely fresh earth on the middle palate. The ending is ripe black cherry and plum fruited.

Argyle Pinot Noir Willamette has deep underlying scents of fresh tilled earth and Eastern spice rack further add to the complexity and wonderful smell of this classic The mouth-feel and flavor exceed what one expects from the already enticing smell. This wine has lovely balance for those red fruits wrapped up into a velvet-textured tannin shell. The center of the palate is cherry creme with bright minerality.

Its fruit aroma is a huge meacute;lange of bright, concentrated raspberry with a hint of citrus and creamy vanilla bean spice. The flavor is super-sweet blackberry/raspberry fruitiness with a cregrave;me brulee texture. The sweet middle segues into a long dark fruit centered finish.

For those of you looking for a refreshing, lighter-bodied Pinot Noir, look no further. Argyle consistently produced some of Oregonrsquo;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.

Winemaker's Notes:

This vintages Pinot Noir exhibits real cool climate Pinot Noir character, where structure is more apparent. The aromas include black cherry, plum pudding fruit and spices wrapped into a blanket of earth and dark chocolate. The flavor has black cherry fruit, and a sort of fruit/earth essence similar to that if you were at the center of a field of wild, summer blackberry bushes. The tannins are soft, and the structure is mineral in nature.
