Product description

Part of Argyle's Artisan Series, the 2018 Reserve Pinot Noir is a blend from all four of their estate vineyard sites and Argyle’s showcase of silky, vibrant Willamette Valley Pinot Noir. The incredible value and consistency makes this wine a staff favorite at Argyle.  Predominately based in the volcanic red soils of the Dundee Hills and Eola-Amity Hills, this Reserve Pinot Noir showcases spicy elegance and silky texture. The 2018 vintage introduces our first Reserve with a touch of marine sedimentary soils from the Giving Tree Vineyard, located in the foothills of the Coast Range, providing just a touch of muscle. Raspberry, dark plum, and cardamom, and an underlying minerality weave with delicate, polished tannin and dynamic energy. Cold soaking and fermenting entirely in small, 1.5-ton fermenters enhances silkiness, while 20% whole cluster inclusion contributes freshness, layered complexity, and vibrant length. 

92 Points - Wine Spectator     Refined and sleekly structured, with multilayered raspberry and cherry flavors that are laced with black tea and spice and glide on a long finish. Drink now through 2027.

92 Points - Wine Enthusiast     This is a four-vineyard blend, scented and framed with toasty oak. The midpalate fruit blends blackberry, blueberry and plum, with a dash of chocolate. The tannins have an appealing ruggedness, and add a green tea note to the finish. The wine was aged 16 months in 30% new French oak.

92 Points - Wilfred Wong of Wine     The 2018 Argyle Reserve Pinot Noir is generous, persistent, and lasting.  This wine shows lovely aromas of black fruit, a hint of chalk, and some sweet spices. Pair it with an oven-roasted Porchetta.
