    This wine lives up to its Reserve designation. It has everything that you could want or expect from Willamette aromatics and fruit tones. Where it differentiates itself is texture. It has super polished tannins, giving the wine extra presence without being distracting. It fills your palate with deliciousness and then effortlessly glides onto a lengthy finish. Definitely worth a try.

    Straightforward Willamette Valley Pinot with lovely notes of cherry, smoke, mushroom and spice. Plenty of bright acid to support. It is refreshing, flavorsome and very worthy of your consumption.

    This is Willamette Valley, long and balanced with delicate sweet raspberry tart cherry intermixing with floral notes and a long finish. Argyle is one of those wineries that I can always count on to make quality Pinot Noir and this just continues that tradition.

    The beauty of Willamette shines through in this Pinot with aromas of smoke and violets. The palate provides a mix of crunchy red fruits and dark fruits with lovely tobacco spice, slate-like minerality and spice.

    A classic Willamette Pinot Noir from a supremely drinkable vintage at a great price, the 2014 Argyle Reserve shows crunchy raspberry and deeper plum fruit, with lifted acid and subtle smokiness on the silky finish. Expressive and terroir-driven, this is both serious and accessible.

    Delicate, unobstructed fruit leaning slightly towards the red varieties, hints of tobacco, and great balance make this wine delicious.

    The Reserve Pinot Noir is a blend from three volcanic vineyard sites and the volcanic soil is ever-​present in this bright, lifted, high acid Pinot Noir. Racy red cherry, rhubarb and strawberry on the nose make way for a lively tart palate of hibiscus, sweet earth and ripe raspberry. Argyle is always a perennial staff favorite and for good reason! ​

    I tasted this and didn't know the price until just before writing this. It's definitely WAY cheaper than I thought it would be. I was expecting a $35-$40 price tag for this reserve Pinot. The first thing that strikes you is that it looks like Pinot Noir and not Cabernet like so many Pinot's today. It's a rich ruby red, but still markedly translucent. The aromatics are powerful: loads of cherry and cranberry tangle with the earthier side of the spectrum. Like a forest full of dew, wild herbs, and fresh, savory mushrooms. The palate is friendly and inviting, but with a nice acid cut. The soft fruit is delicious and the velvety texture pleasing. The lengthy finish is clean and bright. All in all an excellent value for high quality Pinot Noir!

    Delicious wine from a superb vintage, this 2014 Argyle Pinot Noir is firing on all cylinders. Beautiful floral and mild herbal aromas show as the wine hits your glass. Bing cherry, raspberry and oak spices on the medium palate, with moderate tanin, plus a solid mineral vein and earthen quality from the intriguing volcanic soils balancing out this fantastic Pinot. Argyle continues their long run of top notch Pinot Noir with this offering!

    Argyle's known for their fabulous sparkling wines from Willamette Valley but they also make delicious Pinot Noir. The fruit for this wine comes from three of Argyle's estate vineyards and showcases the warm 2014 vintage with vibrant fruit flavors and great balance. The nose is expressive with fresh red cherries, plum, smoky oak and earthiness. Super smooth on the palette with good acid balance, this Pinot is a great one to try! ​

    This wine is absolutely stunning just to look at in the glass! It's a gorgeous crimson and violet color that hypnotizes you instantly while you pour it. That's a good thing, however, because the 2014 Argyle Reserve needs about 15 minutes to open up before it really starts to show you what it's got. It's a good idea to just stare at your glass for a bit. When the air opens it up, the wine is textbook Willamette through and through: raspberry notes with hints of forest floor that are fortified by the bright acidity and somewhat firm tannins. It's the whole package for those curious as to what Oregon offers. Don't let the screw cap fool you either - this is a wine that can easily lay down in the cellar for a few years. Oregon pinot fans should be thrilled either way. This is a serious pinot noir that can be decanted for dinner tonight or stored away for a celebration down the line.
