Argyle Willamette Valley Pinot Noir 2010 Wine Review (NW)
Lightly fragrant pomegranate and pepper on the nose
Light bodied and delicate on the palate
Finishes with raspberries and dried herbs
This is a very delicate Pinot Noir, with one of the lightest colors I've every seen. While delicate, there's certainly some character and a good backbone. Enjoy early in the evening with appetizers, and you'll be amazed how quickly the bottle disappears. For $22, this is a good bet in the Oregon Pinot category and it's widely distributed. Raise a glass!
