"Light in color and texture, this Pinot displays pretty watermelon and cherry flavors that ride smoothly over velvety tannins, hinting at mint as this lingers enticingly. Drink now through 2016." Rating 90 - Harvey Steiman, Wine Spectator
Winery Tasting Notes
Imagine a walk down a Pacific Northwest forest trail in September, the warm, dry smell of first and sunshine with ripe blackberries hanging off the vines and the cool trickle of a babbling brook over wet stones.
That sums up the 2010 Argyle Willamette Valley Pinot Noir. This Pinot Noir has a surprising amount going on in the glass—from up front fruit to earthy complexity and spice nuances. Enjoy this taste of the Willamette Valley on the patio or on the forest trail.
