    Winemaker's Notes:

    The key words for this wine are balance and grace. There is a sensuality to this wine that really brings unique excitement to one's highest calling for the grape, Pinot Noir. Look for rose petal powered red fruit like cherry and raspberry fruit aromas. This is the "feminine" power that only Pinot Noir can capture in a wine glass. The mouth-feel is seductive and creamy textured with red fruit, spice, and violet floral perfumed flavors. Rich, long, and enticing this Pinot Noir keeps on giving.

    Critical Acclaim:

    Open-textured, with a welcome transparency to the blackberry, currant and plum fruit and the shadings of star anise and black pepper. The finish sails on with minimal impediment from tannins. Drink now through 2014. 6,450 cases made.

    The 2006 Pinot Noir Reserve is medium ruby-colored. Its superb bouquet is already complex with notes of spice box, earth notes, cherry, and raspberry. This leads to a smooth textured, elegant, ripe wine with vibrant acidity for the vintage and excellent overall balance. Drink this outstanding effort over the next eight years.

    The Wine Advocate

    The most successful 2006 Pinot in Argyle’s lineup, this wine bursts with cherries, dusty caramel and seductive aromas of rose petals, scattered across the palate. It’s full-flavored yet retains its Pinot character, with poise and tension into the sweet, fruity finish.

    Light red color. Pungent cherry and dried rose aromas offer good clarity, along with a gentle smoky undertone. Round, sappy flavors of cherry preserves and baking spices, with firm tannins adding grip. There's nothing loose about this wine, and it really deserves some decanter or cellar time.

    The apperance is just a touch clearer than I expect from a good Pinot (2 of 3). An interesting bouquet, but not spectatular. Along with the clarity of appearance, I'm expecting an over-filtered, thin taste (3 of 4).Boy am I surprised! A perfectly well balanced wine with just right acidity and tannins! Does this wine ever deliver the taste! A sophisticated presentation that combines several dynamic tastes leads to a rich body full of texture. The finish is long and complex, earning extraordinary marks (9 of 10). This wine doesn't have the tannins to support more aging, and will never be one of the 'Great Pinots', but it is very drinkable today and a decidely enjoyable wine that I think you can enjoy with many foods or by itself (3 of 4)! I'll keep a case on hand as this is a strong value for under $40! TOTAL: 16 of 20

    This pinot deserves its rating and then some. It is unassuming with a screw cap, but this has light body, but real flavor that is missing from many other pinots.

    We initially picked up a bottle of Argyle (Nuthouse) Pinot Noir 2006 at a local store for around $50. We rarely, if ever, spend that much on a bottle of wine. We received a case of the Argyle Reserve 2006 Pinot Noir from you. The bottles did not have the "Nuthouse" designation on the label but we enjoyed it. We are very pleased with our purchase.
