Food Pairings for Argyle Willamette Valley Pinot Noir
External Reviews for Argyle Willamette Valley Pinot Noir
Argyle was named "OREGON'S PREMIER WINERY" by Wine Spectator in the year 2000 and perhaps better known for outstanding sparkling wines, they produce excellent Pinot Noir from Dijon Clones and old vine blocks. Their latest release from the outstanding 2008 vintage scored 90 points in the Wine Spectator who said "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."
You are all going to like this Pinot Noir. Besides the raspberry and cherry fruit aromas, this is the first Willamette Pinot I've ever gotten bright boysenberry fruit aromas from! Deep underlying scents of fresh tilled earth and Eastern spice rack further add to the complexity and wonderful smell of this classic Willamette Valley Pinot Noir. 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. Enjoy a long lasting finish accented by red cherry and a hint of dark chocolate.
